Welcome to Buster's Blog

Irregular commentary on whatever's on my mind -- politics, sports, current events, and life in general. After twenty years of writing business and community newsletters, fifteen years of fantasy baseball newsletters, and two years of email "columns", this is, I suppose, the inevitable result: the awful conceit that someone might actually care to read what I have to say. Posts may be added often, rarely, or never again. As always, my mood and motivation are unpredictable.

"Pray, But Bring Me A Beer First"

A great, snarky comment from a regular reader on my post "Things People Say to Me Now That I Have Cancer."  Made me LOL!

When someone says they will pray for me, I tell them that prayer is a cosmic lottery with very long odds; so bring me a beer and then pray at your convenience -- at least I will have the beer.

I used to ask for the beer and tell them to do something useful like cleaning the litter box instead of wasting their time -- and god's -- with prayer. But I have become much more charming.
