   Hey, that's right, you're in Florida, where apparently our pastor
found our deacon before somehow luring him back to Rhode Island. I can't
imagine what Little Rhodey offered that Florida didn't: it's not like he
got to be the priest or anything. Maybe he gets to borrow the piano
whenever there's no Mass or something.

   And we're Catholics, not Baptists, but it's _definitely_ an affluent
community. (Lots of folks who work for the financial services companies
around Boston but who don't want to pay Massachusetts taxes or live
without a lawn.)

   Very true, which is why he came here in the first place: your good
side wins out in the end. You can't help it, being lovable-but-gruff.

   I think people just want to save you from looking like the Unabomber
to anyone who reads the archives and sees the "ALL THOSE WIIIRES" posts.
Unless that's part of the plan...?
