I actualy thought Halloween 1 was by far the best movie of the batch. It
was original and had a umph to it that faded over the next 7.

I have seen the whole oss thing go from basement idea to full blown media
darling, and the worst of it has been the infighting. It realy is a shame
that the message is now being drowned out, or seemingto in certian
unconverted media markets, in luie of the storm.

to wit, if ER is making the rounds pounding the gospels, then go go gadget
speakers circuit.

I would spend time drawing analogies to the early Gospel travellors and
their particular swaubbles, but that would cut into lunch and would have
me drawing the conclusions oSS will ossify into a Church Mentality.

So ill skip that for now.
