I don't know the story behind that, but Sometimes the internets make me so happy.


Tomorrow I have an interview, if all goes well, I will get a one bedroom apartment in North Fitzroy. for 2-3 years as long as I keep in some sort of school. Here's hoping it goes well.

The Bikers Against Child Abuse.

"The 11-year-old girl hears the rumble of their motorcycles, rich and deep, long before she sees them. She chews her bottom lip, nervous.

They are coming for her.

The bikers roar into sight, a pack of them, long-haired and tattooed, with heavy boots and leather vests, and some riding double. They circle the usually quiet Gilbert cul-de-sac, and the noise pulls neighbors from behind slatted wood blinds and glossy front doors.

One biker stops at the mouth of the street, parks in the middle of the road and stands guard next to his motorcycle, arms crossed.

The rest back up to the curb in front of the girl's house, almost in formation, parking side by side. There are 14 motorcycles in all, mostly black and shiny chrome. The bikers rev their engines again before shutting them down.

The sudden silence is deafening. The girl's mother takes her hand.

The leader of this motorcycle club is a 55-year-old man who has a salt-and-pepper Fu Manchu and wears his hair down past his shoulders. He eases off his 2000 Harley Road King and approaches the little girl.

He is formidable, and intimidating, and he knows it. So he bends low in front of the little girl and puts out his hand, tanned and weathered from the sun and wind: "Hi, I'm Pipes."

"Nice to meet you," she says softly, her small hand disappearing in his."

I love the way it takes your preconceptions, and within half a page tears them to shreds and stabs the pieces deep into your very soul. And it is awesome.

You find yourself in a flood. The water is rising hopelessly. You must abandon your home. What do you save? For some, the choice is clear:

Maybe not quite what people want, but last week I helped with a baptismal service at our church. It was really incredible to hear about two men and one woman who had beaten their addictions thanks in part to programs at our church, and another young man who had escaped the threat of death in the Congo to reside in Canada - his father just returned to the Congo to help in setting up a charity he helped start that give people the tools to start sustainable agriculture (after the war destroyed all their farms).

The film 'God Bless America'.

Really good stuff. And, yes, the title is ironic. But just a lovely film.
