New York City: 'Free' Condoms for Valentine's Day

You know, just when I was having that, "Everything is fine in the world" type of feeling, I read this.

Taking advantage of the holiday for lovers, Mayor Michael Bloomberg's administration unveiled the official city condom in midtown Manhattan, where volunteers handed them out free at Fifth Avenue and 50th Street.

... "We ask, 'Did you use a condom the last time you had sex?' And once this is launched, the next time we ask that question, of those people who say yes, we'll say, 'What did the wrapper look like?'" Frieden said. "And if they describe our wrapper, then we'll know that they would have used our condom." (NYTimes)

Today's reading is on Noah giving thanks for good mercy upon the waters residing. God makes his covenant using the sign of the rainbow, promising not to flood the earth again.

I had to think about that 100 inches of snow in Up State NY (and it's still snowing). I wonder if there were any rainbows in NY lately. I would expect to hear this kind of immoral news from this side of the States (West Coast).

To the good people of NY., we'll pray for the East Coast and we ask you pray for the West Coast.
