*The top 400 income earners in the U.S. had an average income of $174 million each, or a combined income of $69 billion in the year 2000.

*That $69 billion is more than the combined incomes of the 166 million people living in the four countries that George Bush visited last week: Nigeria, Senegal, Uganda, and Botswana.

*In 1995, the top 400 income earners paid almost 30 percent of their income in taxes.

*After the Bush tax cuts and other factors, the proportion will be less than 18 percent.

*Based on their income in the year 2000, that tax savings translates to nearly $7 billion.

*A World Health Organization commission determined that if rich countries contributed a total of $25 billion, the increased investments in disease prevention and treatment could save 8 million people from death each year in poor countries around the globe.

*The U.S. share would be $8 billion, given the size of its economy in relation to other donors.

here's a little excerpt from the forthcoming book, 'Harry Potter and the lake of fire'.

"What?" said Ron Weasley in astonishment, "Have you gone off your bloomin' rocker? You're going to burn all your books of magical incantations, and destroy your wizard's wand, and your cloak of invisibility? You must be mad!"

"Not at all," shot back Harry, with a fiery glint of righteous boldness in his eyes. "Through the anointed ministry of Bob Larson, I have come to see that these things are all tools of Satan. They are strongholds for demonic oppression, or even possession. I am choosing to cut all ties with my sordid past, and to destroy every wicked thing that has held me in bondage. Better to burn them, than for me to burn forever in the Lake of Fire!"

not really a clubby post but two class quotes from the film 'bruce almighty'. the story is basically that god (morgan freeman) gives this guy bruce (jim carey) his powers and watches him make a mess of it. there is only one rule - you cant affect free will.

bruce to god (after he loses the love of his woman even with his supernatural powers): 'how do you make people love you without affecting free will?'

god to bruce (while mopping the floor): 'the thing is bruce, no matter how messed up things get, you can always clean them right up again.'

This is the echo weblog. An echo is somewhere between a voice and no voice, somewhere between hearing and not hearing, and somewhere between knowing and not knowing. It's a place of faith and doubt. It's for all those trying to shed their snake skins of tradition, pride, ignorance, prejudice, and trying to work things out for themselves. It's for those caught dancing in the dichotomy of clubbing and christianity, and still trying to follow Christ.
a few of us were discussing what songs the disciples hummed to themselves as they walked home on ascension day....which do you think it was?
'leaving on a jet plane' - like in armageddon (the film that is, not the real thing)
anything by 'air'
'lifted' by 'the lighthouse family'
'up, up and away' by 'andy williams'
'i believe i can fly' by 'r kelly'
'reach for the stars' by 's club'
'stairway to heaven' by 'led zeppelin' (or rolf harris, depends on your taste)
'the only way is up' by 'yazz and the plastic population'
'i'll fly away' by 'alison krauss'
'movin on up' by 'primal scream'
