You're goddamned right things are finally going well, but you can go to hell if you think I've got anyone to thank for it. Not Jesus, that's for damned sure. I've prayed for understanding. I've prayed for blessings. Jesus is neither a scholar nor Santa Claus. Near as I can tell he's most like Captain Kirk: a swashbuckling wet dream for nationalistic pinheads. So next time you to write to someone and are overwhelmed with the arrogance to suggest that they thank anyone for the profits of their own hard work, maybe you could do me a favor and go stick your head in the toilet.
