Some would turn to prayer at this point, but I’ve long believed that current religions are far too general to be of much use. One god of competing flavors, maybe a son, maybe not, maybe a fat guy in a robe with a beatific smile … that’s about it. In this age of specialization that’s pretty damned inefficient. No wonder so few prayers get answered.
      The problem is polytheism, which for some reason has been relegated to the outmoded religion shelf, but who told us that monotheism is best? What’s best about it?
      Give me the good old panoply of Greek gods and goddesses any day. That way, if you need something done you know who can handle your particular request. You’ve got a hell of a lot better odds than if everything were filtered through one gigantic email folder.
