And Job Thought He Had It Tough

Television viewers would gladly trade what some of them must be stupified by right now for a nice, relaxing plague of frogs, or even blood. As this is being written, Chris Matthews, who never quits when he's behind, has devoted an entire hour of "Hardball" to a debate on the existence of God. The two sages he's thrown in the intellectual octagon are Al Sharpton (Pro) and Christopher Hitchens (Con).

I switched channels as fast as my thumb could move, but I have to figure Hitchens has the best of this argument. No merciful, all-wise power could possibly inflict such entertainment on innocent souls. Or hardened sinners, for that matter. If only Dante had had cable, the "Inferno" could have a lot scarier.
