Does Western Wall Note Protect Florida?

Goyishe Gov. Charlie Crist says yes

Florida’s governor, Charlie Crist, says he has found the answer to a problem plaguing his state for decades: how to avoid hurricane damage. Addressing an assembly of Florida’s real-estate agents over the weekend, the governor, a devout Methodist, said that since 2007, he has been making annual pilgrimages to Jerusalem’s Wailing Wall, where he places a note begging the Almighty to spare the Sunshine State. As a result, he claimed, God’s been good to Florida for the last few years.

But what if the governor, a busy man, can’t make the trip? No problem, said Crist: last year, he sent Florida State Senator Nan Rich on his behalf, giving her, he added, not only his note but also specific instructions on how to place it in the wall. Crist was even kind enough to share the exact wording of his notes to heaven. “Dear God,” they read, “please protect our Florida from storms and other difficulties. Charlie.” Amen.

Came clueless, left worried. Thanks for the post. Sometimes I wonder whether the planet is being run by smart people who are putting us on or by imbeciles who really mean it.

Hi I recently finished going through your blog and I’m rather impressed. I actually do have a couple questions for you however. Do you think you’re planning on doing a follow-up article on this? Will you be going to keep updating as well? Furthermore if you have a chance will you rate my Rappelz web site whenever you have the opportunity?
