You know, if you could just call null.toString() and have it return "null" instead of throwing an exception, in exactly the way it behaves when you call "some string "+null, I would hate Java so much less...

Lapsed Episcopalianism

In a discussion about religion over on dpolicar's journal, I mentioned that I identify as "lapsed Episcopalian" -- which is to say, I'm an Episcopalian, but I don't go to church as often as I feel I ought -- and Dave asked if there was a story behind that, given that I used to identify as sorta-half-assed-nonpracticing-Mormon back in high school and early college.

There isn't really, but that didn't stop me from writing about it, and perhaps some of the prose will amuse, and regardless, it saves me from having to write more if I just re-use that content for today's journal entry, so I direct you to read more about it, should you be so inclined, here.

Owning one's comments, indeed.
