Jesus Christ - Twitter Avatar
Breaking internet meme: this site was surprised when one of its associates was notified that his newest Twitter follower was none other than Jesus Christ Himself! With a tag line of “Follow Jesus in your life and on Twitter” J.C. seems to have appeared on the internet just this morning. None of His posts are older than an hour, but this son has been busy. He goes by @JesusProphet online and has already tweeted at Lady Gaga that she looks “like the cowardly lion.” Seemed like a compliment! Other choice bits include “White people are funny, they really think I am one? Come on, get a map.” and “I think I’m starting to get splinters.” You can find Christ on Twitter @JesusProphet. And yes, we are following Him back.
UPDATE: RIP JC of the Internet. After a mere two-hour existence on-line, Jesus Christ has had His Twitter account suspended. Religious satire lives fast and dies quick on the Internet. More to the story…no doubt.

These two are just too cute. Barely more than kids, as soldiers usually are, they are caught in a complicated history, their own personal stories intertwined with that of their country at war. Vets, and children of vets, understand how one can despise war and still honor warriors. Many of us still carry the physical and emotional effects of conflicts long past. “It’s complicated” – as they say on Facebook. War is hell, but it is also boredom. In these media days, that’s easily taken care of with a camera and a YouTube account. The Internet is awash with interesting videos made by soldiers with time on their hands. These two mess around to Soulja Boy’s
