That's done it. Even in a fairy mild-mannered area like Minneapolis, you can always count on an uproar when letters touching on religion get published in the Strib. It doesn't matter what you say or how well-meaning or benign, someone's pet bull is somehow gored and outrage invariably follows. If only we'd pay such close attention to the actual news. Oh well, I guess it's Friday. ;->
