Here, you are urged and encouraged to run your mouths about something important.

On April 1st, a video of Representative Hank Johnson (D-GA) expressing his concern to Admiral Robert Willard at a March 25th Armed Services Committee hearing went viral. Amazingly, Johnson conveyed that he was concerned that the island of Guam would "tip over" or "capsize" if it got too populated.

Since then, the reasons attributed to the absurd statement ranged from Johnson's lack of intelligence to an illness he suffered which prevents him from censoring his speech. In either case, he should be viewed as unfit to serve.

What to do, what to do? DAMAGE CONTROL! According to a post on Yahoo's Buzz Log, the strategy appears to be to blame those who took him seriously by saying that the whole thing was a metaphor that fell flat. Here is the statement from Johnson's spokesman:
"I was using a metaphor to say that with the addition of 8,000 Marines and their dependents -- an additional 80,000 people during peak construction to the port on the tiny island with a population of 180,000 -- could be a tipping point which would adversely affect the island’s fragile ecosystem and overburden its already overstressed infrastructure."
I didn't think the fact that Johnson's words indicated he believed that islands float could be easily trumped. This explanation does just that.

If this was a metaphor, Johnson's competence should be questioned in that area as well.

Judge for yourself....


**VIDEO BELOW COMES WITH SPOILER ALERT** This documentary first aired on the History channel on March 30th. I made a point to watch it. I was skeptical of how this network would portray the Shroud but was not only pleasantly surprised in that regard but my expectations were blown away. Using the modern technology of 3D computer software, the researchers discovered that within the two dimensional linen exists a three dimensional image.

Throughout the documentary, the suspense builds as you know the ending will contain the actual face of the Son of Yahweh. If you plan on watching the 2nd or 3rd airing of the program on Saturday, April 3rd at 8pm EST or Sunday April 4th at 5pm EST, consider yourself warned about the one minute clip below that shows the transformation. That said, one thing I will divulge - and this was an incredibly powerful moment - is that the expression of the head researcher on this project, Ray Downing, appeared to be captured as he watched the fruits of his labor for the first time - as the actual Face on the Shroud comes to life.

However, I personally found the most awe-inspiring part of the documentary to involve something other than the very climactic ending. Without giving it away, I will say it involves the Gospel of John, Chapter 20, Verse 7:
7 But the burial napkin (kerchief) which had been around Jesus' head, was not lying with the other linen cloths, but was [still] [a]rolled up (wrapped round and round) in a place by itself.
If you decide to watch one of the re-airings, be sure to pay particularly close attention when this comes up. Utterly mind-blowing.
