I'm the cleaning person at church and was working there a week ago, the phone rang and a woman saying she was working for the US Census Bureau Burlington VT office was asking churches how many people attend. I went and told her but then brought up the Constitution which says they're only authorized to ask heads of households how many live there and that her question is wrong since I felt is goes against the seperation of church and state. She didn't care to here all that and gave me a curt thank you and goodbye.
Democrats are poised to avoid the danger of President Barack Obama accepting his party’s nomination before a partially-empty stadium by shifting his speech to an indoor arena and citing ‘severe weather’.

BOSTON (AP) - Boston police are looking for the vandals who knocked the head off a statue of Jesus outside a Roman Catholic church named for Mother Teresa.
The Rev. Jack Ahern of Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta at St. Margaret's church in the city's Dorchester section says when he arrived at the church Sunday morning the statue's head was lying on the ground in pieces and the statue had been knocked off its base.
The government turned up the pressure Tuesday on the head of a small Florida church who plans to burn copies of the Quran on Sept. 11, warning him that doing so could endanger U.S. troops and Americans everywhere.
A North Carolina man finds himself answering a complaint before a state licensing board for "practicing engineering without a license" NOT because he was representing himself as a qualified engineer, but because his petition to the government for redress of grievances appeared "to be engineering level work".
The new work shifts the state line in several areas a few hundred feet one way or the other. That has created a bureaucratic nightmare for some. Lewis Efird's company owns the land where a gas station was built in what he thought was South Carolina, but is now North Carolina. He said the move makes the station worthless because higher gas taxes will raise his pump prices 30 cents a gallon and the fireworks that boost his profits are illegal in North Carolina.
NORTH PORT - The used car was a blessing, a gift from her church to help Diane Pearson, a single mother with three children and a long commute to work. And after receiving the 1998 Mercury from her church, Pearson found her drive to Sarasota a bit less stressful.
North Port took Pearson to court this month over fines of more than $27,000 for keeping her old car in the driveway without a license plate. If the city wins its case, Pearson could be facing bankruptcy.
