My smart mouth annoyed the nuns no end not least when I posed the conundrum of our supposed unfettered will versus God’s infallible foreknowledge.
In religion class, I raised my hand and asked Sister Estelle, “If God knows and sees everything, including what we’re going to do — how is it we’re supposed to have free will?”
Not till much later did I find infinitely more solace and satisfaction from Alexander Jablokov’s pithy “The road to truth is long, and lined the entire way with annoying bastards.”
Speaking of which, I will continue scratching my furry head over people’s fascination with all things Kardashian, especially the recent tabloid headlines that the congenitally protuberant but now excusably pregnant Kim is allegedly tipping the scales at 205 plus lbs. Why is this news? Better yet, “Who cares?’
Of considerably greater interest has always been Kardashian paterfamilias and O.J. Simpson attorney, the late Robert Kardashian and the answer to the question, “What was Robert Kardashian carrying in that bulging Louis Vitton garment bag?” Hmmm, what’s the more substantive Kardashian inquiry? Binging on sweets or bloody clothes and a knife? Also see “Background Facts on O.J. Simpson Case . . . .”
Fortunately, not all life is a mystery. We don’t have to worry our pointy, pretty little heads, for example, over one thing and that’s that I will continue posting on FREE CLE.
