Drew Shiel noted: >>If this idea is only occurring for the first time, you don't know enough >>pagans. Hi Drew, A fun bunch those pagans ... Yup I know some of them. In fact, I even know plenty of folks who gave their money to the Catholic missions so they could *buy* their own pagan! ['Back in the day' some Catholic schools (in an effort to increase revenue contributions to their missionary services) offered young school children the opportunity to 'buy' and rename a pagan baby ... the going rate at that time was $5. Even then I considered it a cruel and unusual practice to saddle these poor 3rd world children with names like 'Elizabeth Marie' and 'Joseph Alexander' ... I always worried that they'd show up some day to beat the hell out of the folks that renamed them ... ... I wanted to call mine "Trigger". ;-) [Unfortunately, the nuns didn't think that was nearly as cool as I did. Forunately for both of us I could never scrap more than 65¢ together.] RonL. Who quite appreciates the fact that May Day is much warmer in Houston than it ever was in NorthEastern Ohio. Brrrrr!
