I Did It. And I’m Sorry.

I’ve gone and done something. You had your chance to stop me. I asked for your opinion.  Even still, I will apologize in advance for subjecting you to this post.

I read the sequel.


I wasn’t planning to. It caught me completely off-guard. I was trolling along in life, working on my Bh.D. a little at a time, when the book tour show snuck up on me.  It was all downhill from there. Once I saw all those people lined up to get their book signed, I had to know what was in that book!

Here’s the skinny: the book covers the arrested-for-capturing-Andrew-Luster (the lowest of the low jerk) days, as well as the use-of-an-inappropriate-word-caught-on-tape timeframe. It truly is a sequel to the first book, which covers his life from, well, birth, until the time his show got rolling.

While you may still be judging me and are most likely judging Beth, I continue to be amazed by how savvy she is in business terms. After having read two of these books, here’s what I know: he wouldn’t be half of what he is without her. In fact, he’d probably be in a Mexican jail right now.

Proof that an effective, though vocabularily challenged, helpmate can change the course of a man’s life.  It’s what we do.

Bottom line: my theology differs greatly from theirs. However, few people go toward, spend time with, or ever touch the untouchables. It’s what they specialize in. I can’t recall a day this year that I’ve spent any amount of time with the untouchables.

Who, then, is doing it unto the “least of these” (Matthew 25:40)? Them or me?

Read the book and be duly chastised.
