Please join me in remembering a great icon BORN IN 1937.
The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infection and trauma
complications from repeated pokes in the belly. He was 71. Doughboy was
buried in a lightly greased coffin. Dozens of celebrities turned out to
pay their respects, including Mrs.. Butterworth, Hungry Jack, the
California Raisins, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies, and Captain
Crunch. The grave site was piled high with flours.
Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy and lovingly described Doughboy as a
man who never knew how much he was kneaded. Doughboy rose quickly in
show business, but his later life was filled with turnovers. He was not
considered a very smart cookie, wasting much of his dough on half-baked
schemes. Despite being a little flaky at times he still was a crusty old
man and was considered a positive roll model for millions.
Doughboy is survived by his wife Play Dough, two children, John Dough
and Jane Dough, and one in the oven. He is also survived by
> > his elderly father, Pop Tart.

In a perfect world everything and everyone would somehow be perfect.
Since we are not perfect we are not qualified to judge one another.
Since judging from within is sometimes required to facilitate society,we choose those whose lives have been such that (in the interest of society) they are willing to put themselves up to be judged by Society before being ‘Named’ - to become judges.
This is the philosophical basis for the American Legal System.
Any examination of this American System, in action, demonstrates disappointingly the fallibility of this approach, BUT IT IS STILL THE BEST SYSTEM WE HAVE.
The only known path to the experiencing of perfection in this life (except perhaps complete solitude) is to seek one individual whom (for whatever reason) one is willing (and able) to refrain from judging.
Ideally this nonjudgmental attitude should be mutual.
(This might be why God suggested to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden that it might be better if they did not eat the fruit of the TREE OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL.)
AND THE REST IS ‘HISTORY’
The Holy Spirit knows (among other things) When and How
Paul’s CONVERSION on the road to Damascus might be one example.
The Year 2008 et seq. in America, and environs, is an example.

Each viewer can interpret what they see, or NOT. Either way there is an effect. That is part of the process of living on earth today, I think.
National Leadership impacts lives in ways that differ significantly from any time in the past.
The selection process for leaders today should be carefully improved by all peoples to insure the highest integrity, sincerity, qualifications, and ability in Leaders at all levels in order to lift our societies, and humanity itself, to ever higher levels of civilized development.
Each generation owes this kind of dedicated responsibility to the next.
