As I mentioned last week, other (good!) things are semi-hiatusing me from the most time-consuming blogging for a bit. Just did not have time to put together a Hither and Thither this week. Sorry! Maybe next week.
I did find something I've thought of over and over again for many years. It is from the August/September 1978 edition of The Wittenburg Door, a sort of Christianoid Mad Magazine that ran interviews, serious pieces and many humorous pieces and satires. It still sort of exists online. (I haven't read the Door for 30+ years, so can't vouch for anything.)
What I bring you today was my favorite bit, ever. It was on the occasion of the erection of that grand monstrosity, The Crystal Cathedral. This piece has particularly bitter irony, now that we know the miserable end to which the monument to Robert Schuller's ego has come.
It was a full-page graphic titled HOW TO SPEND $15,000,000, and it went something like this.
I thought it a potent comment. Remember that this is in 1978 dollars. Maybe some brainiac can do the math to update the current impact.
