"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Did you know the DiCaprio film, The Revenant, is actually based on the early history of Blaine, Missouri?

The bear scene was lifted right out of the acclaimed play, Red White and Blaine, directed by Broadway impresario Corky St. Clair, as recounted in the famed documentary, Waiting For Guffman.  It was a triumph!  Sadly it will most likely not be credited at the Oscars.


  1. OMGoodness! I almost spit my coffee out laughing so hard. Thanks. I needed that!

  2. The conceptualization, the whole abstraction, the obtuseness of this post is what I find interesting. How did you ever make that connection in your head? I'm impressed. Must be a zen thing. You know, babies in tires.
