Pay No Attention to the Man Behind the Forecast!

- -

The forecast says rain-
The sky says sun. It's April,
And I'm so confused.

I know a number of you out there are interested in the latest news on the Mormon church, so we can file this one under "What a Difference a Consonant Makes" -

Student Newspaper at BYU Pulled Over Caption Error

PROVO, Utah (AP) - About 18,500 issues of the Daily Universe student newspaper at Brigham Young University were pulled from newsstands because a photo caption on the front page misidentified leaders of the Mormon church as apostates instead of apostles.

An apostate is a person who has abandoned religious faith, principles or a cause.

The photo was of members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, a governing body of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-days Saints, at the weekend general conference.

The caption called the group the "Quorum of the Twelve Apostates."

The papers were replaced with corrected copies later Monday.

Saw the picture of the twelve guys, be damned if they all didn't look like they just returned from a strip club.

Catalyst- yes sir, the daffodils are up, and there's snow in the forecast. It's springtime in New England!

Beach- well, it's Utah, so the strip clubs feature women taking off their burkhas...
