Robin Hood

Reading about the blackjack player that's going to help some random folks out is fairly inspiring. (see

However, it's sad that this isn't the church or something else doing this...  I guess there's a lot of sides to this...

1. It's 'sensational' so it gets news - you don't hear about the local soup kitchen doing good every day.
2. It's about debt - hot topic.
3. It's wild - gambling!

Also, the church tends to try more rehab type solutions: don't just pay off their debt, teach them to be good stewards of their money. Programs like Financial Peace University and such are amazing in their long term effects.

On the flip side, I've read that around 90% of people coming into sudden wealth (e.g., lottery winners) are WORSE off w/in 1 year.

Just some thoughts... no real solid point here.

On the Booples front...

- I'm working on finalizing deals with several download based sites
- the Booples children's book is moving along (everything is w/ the publisher!)
- one more video ("Love Your Neighbor") and I'll release the 3rd DVD!

God bless!
