Corrections!

Usually corrections don't appear in the same place of prominence that the error occurred, but CoP is different. A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that we have taught our young people debt is part of the process of accomplishment . . . and many American children have also learned that bankruptcy is a "new beginning," but student loans cannot be absolved in bankruptcy. Well, I mentioned a statistic that was wrong. I believe I stated that 37% of college graduates return to their parent's home after graduation. while looking for that great career their college degree affords them. I was wrong, the figure isn't 37%, it's 85%! And it isn't just for the summer while they are sending out resumes. The article I read said the average time back home was a year and a half. So, parents of college students, just when you thought Obamacare had you financially trapped for insurance until your college student is 26, fear not, you'll be able to supervise their health and habits because they'll still be living at home, anyway. On the bright side, this should alleviate any concerns you may have about experiencing empty nest syndrome. Now, the other correction is sort of startling. I didn't realize in all the years of Halloween horror, that the only two documented cases of children being poisoned by candy were actually done by family members. One was a horrible deal involving a little girl's father and the other was a little boy that got into a family member's drug stash and the family member, then to avoid prosecution for the drug, sprinkled it on the already deceased child's candy. So, has the media simply hyped this up to raise the fear factor in Halloween? I don't know, but the article was thought provoking if not compelling. Do we just feel like better people if we fear the imagined and protect our children, while casting them out in darkness to celebrate demons and witches? Now that whole idea could use some correction!
Because of the multitude of the whoredoms of the wellfavoured harlot . . . that selleth nations through her whoredoms, and families through her witchcrafts. Behold, I am against thee, saith YHVH of hosts . . . a prophet of Holy Scripture
