#1 What is it, about every couple of months some dipsticks get into trouble for going into an area that is known to be crime ridden and/or anti-American. I wished they'd send Jimmy Carter out into the Sinai to get them back. You'd have to do it at gun point though since he won't go unless he stays at the equivalent of a 5 star hotel with a wet bar in the room.

#2 Jimmy doesn't actually patronize the wet bar. He just likes to sneer at it.

#3 Woah...one of them's from my hometown:
The family of a Dorchester pastor is praying for his safe return from captivity in Egypt, after he and an Everett woman and their tour guide were kidnapped while traveling on a religious mission.
Michel Louis, 61, pastor of the Free Pentecostal Church of God, appears to be all right but has diabetes and may require medical attention before long, his son said.
"We're all in good spirits because we know the God we serve is in control of the matter," his son, Jean Louis, the church's youth pastor, said.
He said his father was on an annual mission to Israel with a group of clergy. Jean Louis confirmed the identity of the female captive as Lisa Alphonse of Everett.

#4 "his father was on an annual mission to Israel"
So he went to a safe, Westernized nation and then deliberately went on to a violent, Christian-hating, 7th-century throwback. And took a woman with him.
Just because your God can work miracles, Rev, it's not guaranteed he will work them.
God helps those who help themselves. You should have helped yourself to more of Israel's hospitality.
