About Us
A penny for your thoughts indeed. Around here that would be a raise.

What makes a good blog? I think thematic consistency, a little exhibitionism, and honest writing. I can promise you the last one.

Most of my posts seem to be about music or politics. Some of them are funny. But all of them would love to hear a comment from you.

Oh-- and please welcome God to the APW team. We're thrilled and humbled to serve as His earthly vessel.

Location: NYC

I was born at a relatively young age. Growing up consumed the better part of my childhood. As a young man I chased a lot of girls. But they kept getting away. Then I got older and even slower, so I got married. I've lived in New York City almost since before I moved here. I summer in Manhattan, which is like New York City, but with more humidity.

Here's me, without baby, thinking big thoughts. (Actually, what I'm thinking is, "Hey, these aren't Pringles!") I think I look better with baby.

From Bob Jones to George Bush
Saturday, November 13, 2004
There really are two Americas. Which do you live in? I sure as hell don't live in this one (below), and I'm damn glad I don't. It frightens the shit out of me. As it should you.


With thanks to Scruffy, Bob Jones's letter to the president:

congratulatory letter to the prez:

President George W. Bush
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500

Dear Mr. President:

The media tells us that you have received the largest number of popular
votes of any president in America's history. Congratulations!

In your re-election, God has graciously granted America—though she
doesn't deserve it—a reprieve from the agenda of paganism. You have
been given a mandate. We the people expect your voice to be like the
clear and certain sound of a trumpet. Because you seek the Lord daily,
we who know the Lord will follow that kind of voice eagerly.

Don't equivocate. Put your agenda on the front burner and let it boil.
You owe the liberals nothing. They despise you because they despise
your Christ. Honor the Lord, and He will honor you.

Had your opponent won, I would have still given thanks, because the
Bible says I must (I Thessalonians 5:18). It would have been hard, but
because the Lord lifts up whom He will and pulls down whom He will, I
would have done it. It is easy to rejoice today, because Christ has
allowed you to be His servant in this nation for another presidential
term. Undoubtedly, you will have opportunity to appoint many
conservative judges and exercise forceful leadership with the Congress
in passing legislation that is defined by biblical norm regarding the
family, sexuality, sanctity of life, religious freedom, freedom of
speech, and limited government. You have four years—a brief time
only—to leave an imprint for righteousness upon this nation that brings
with it the blessings of Almighty God.

Christ said, “If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am,
there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my father
honour” (John 12:26).

The student body, faculty, and staff at Bob Jones University commit
ourselves to pray for you—that you would do right and honor the Savior.
Pull out all the stops and make a difference. If you have weaklings
around you who do not share your biblical values, shed yourself of
them. Conservative Americans would love to see one president who
doesn't care whether he is liked, but cares infinitely that he does

Best wishes.

Sincerely your friend,

Bob Jones III


PS: A few moments ago I read this letter to the students in Chapel.
They applauded loudly their approval.

When I told them that Tom Daschle was no longer the minority leader of
the Senate, they cheered again.

On occasion, Christians have not agreed with things you said during
your first term. Nonetheless, we could not be more thankful that God
has given you four more years to serve Him in the White House, never
taking off your Christian faith and laying it aside as a man takes off
a jacket, but living, speaking, and making decisions as one who knows
the Bible to be eternally true.
