My mother likes to iron her sheets. "It makes your bed feel like a hotel bed," she says.
I'm a huge fan of hotel rooms, believing that the five best words in the English language are "Please clean up this room," so I tried it.
The ironing process itself was time consuming and cumbersome, but not without its zen-like appeal. And my mom was right, the sheets did feel crisper and fresher as I slipped into bed.
But I slept fitfully anyway, owing to another New Thing: John McCain's choice of running mate, a devout Evangelical who believes we should teach creationism in schools.
Okay, I'm only gonna say this once: Evangelicals can teach creationism in our schools just as soon as they let us teach evolution in their churches.
And, that, my friends is the Gospel According to Marc.
