For those who might be wondering who the hell I am and what I’m doing here — just passing through. DougJ kindly slipped me a spare key on way out the door to his current undisclosed location. I’ll be gone once he gets back. I have a couple of other personal blogs, but from now until November I’ll be doing most of my serious posting at Detroit News, where I’ve been blogging to keep Michigan blue since 2004.
In all those years, I posted about Mormons for the first time just this weekend. Since then I’ve been deluged with emails from Mormons. Really long emails. With multiple links. They’re apparently very sensitive about how their charitable contributions are calculated.
I read all the way through every one of them because, I know nothing about Mormons. Never even met one in real life. They tell me they are not an organized group. They don’t speak on behalf of the church. Yet their emails are nearly identical. Except for this one stray bit which caught my interest:
There is a book out on the Mormon way of doing business. We are trained from a young age to learn skills that can be transferred to the business world.
I want to read this book. I wonder if I can buy it without joining.
Also too, open thread if you want it.
