Finally finished the story. There has been a lot of time competition keeping up with all of the current events from the accelerating deterioration of the world financial affairs. "Uh-oh" as Diamond would say. Trying to read through the posts on ZH articles is taking much longer with all the newbies on board. I really liked the edge "Acts of Charity" had, and "Not Even Work" was mostly worth the read as well. Thanks for sharing. I miss the green kitty, you seem to have acquired a sharper edge since the Puma showed up.

Leave it to WB7 to distill it down to the basics. :>)

Sorry dude,


If it was a high school sophomore writing this shtuff, I might be moderately impressed.


I assume it is not, therefore I am not.

Thanks for posting CD. Don't have time right now Cougar but will get to your story as soon as possible. I've been looking forward to getting to know Diamond after meeting Fortran in the last piece. Ignore the goof-balls. They don't have to read if they don't want.

WTF is this crap???

It's fiction. It's funny. Maybe.

Be gentle Cougar. The poor man walked in the front door expecting his favorite purveyor of porn and found instead that a religious book store had moved in over night. He's just a little disorientated.

Why don't you hand him an illustrated large type Koran and set him down in the corner to recover?

I'm not sure what you are talking about CD, but I wish that johngaltfla would post his prose here instead of this sophomoric slop.

I hope that this crap isn't a sign of what ZH is to come and sincerely wonder if it's a part of a concerted attempt to reduce the influence of ZH by dilution of content.

Wait. That's a great story line! The kicker is ... he can't tell the difference and he reads all the sex parts of the religious books (kama sutra? tantric study? Bible sex?) and gets all "turned on" in entirely the wrong way and he changes for the better. His friends no long know him, his girlfriend takes him back and he gets a great job at a regular bookstore handed to him.

Or is that too wild?

Way too long.

What is the message and when does the doomage start?

Anticipating the rest of the story. :)
