Oh, Ruthie -- that's good! I believe you are right -- though it may be that he is the one who is administering the balm (grace?).

A signed first edition of Gilead sold today on Ebay for almost $160. It was around $40 until the very end when the price shot up.

This may be off topic, but I didn't know where else to put it.

Yesterday, I read Marilynne Robinson's stunning critique of Richard Dawkins' The God Delusion from a few years back.

It is well worth the read: http://tinyurl.com/6xfwdx6
