God's got the Hefty Bag

A story from the morning news that had Jo and I laughing... [emphasis mine]

Sunday morning, many Mifflin residents were "miffed" by the presence of some unexpected help in their cleanup efforts. [you know the news was just waiting for a place to sneak in that "miffed" part]

"It's been kinda fun. There were a couple people who were kinda comin' outta their place with garbage bags and we said, 'Hey, head back in, go to sleep, take a shower, do whatever you wanna do. We'll take care of the cleanup process for you,'"

About 45 people showed up along Mifflin around seven a.m., hoping to surprise residents when they awoke.

This marks the first time church members have coordinated such an event. They call it a practical way to show people God loves them.

So god wants to clean up after 20,000 university students party in drunken revelry? Really? He wants them to sleep in a take a shower instead of cleaning up their own mess? Did they feel god's love through their hangover? Personally, I think students should clean up their own beer cups and other partying garbage. Furthermore, I'd love to see Mayor Dave shut down the Halloween party. Last year they uprooted trees. This is inexcusable. What did the trees do to them? And Madison is practically under siege Halloween night, as I discovered on my way back from a blogger dinner last fall.
