Please direct your attention to the main stage, and (if the Prefixed Life had an unlimited budget such that we could afford him on this grand occasion) to your ring announcer, Michael Buffer.

“For the hundreds who have visited the Prefixed Life…and the millions with the ability to do so worldwide . . .it gives us great pleasure to introduce the Blogging Match-Up . . . which will be decided by fifteen (or more or less) rounds of furious blogging action to determine the Heaven-Weight World Championship. . .

. . .and perhaps . . .

Salvation itself!

Ladies and Gentlemen, introducing, first . . .

In the Black Corner;

Our Veteran . . .

He Lives in gorgeous, sunny; traffic-, smog-, and crime-free Southern California . . .

Your liberal, left-of-Karl Marx-leaning, Commandments-are-not-our-God. . .

blogging correspondent,


And now.

The Prefixed Life is proud to introduce,

In the White Corner, your challenger

She hales from the not quite-so-gorgeous or warm, or beach-front . . .

or cool (unless you mean temperature-wise) State of Pennsylvania, U.S.A.

where she has two children, a cat, a degree in nursing, a gorgeous mind . . .

and a bizarre alarm clock.

From the exact center of the famous and historic

Philadelphia-Harrisburg-Scanton exotic triangle,

Presenting . . .

The Naturally-Talented, ‘Not-So-Dumb,’ Conservative-to-the-Right of Genghis Khan, Commandments-Point-The-Way-To-Heaven, Blonde Blogger,


Blonde Blogger Karen Borton



And now please direct your attention ring side to our humble referee, dressed in a simple garment of shimmering white, who bears scars in His hands and feet but has the beautiful smiling face of a caring, shepherding, carpenter . . .for the pre-fight instructions:

“Alright, Karen and Scotty:

We went over all the rules in your respective locker rooms before this bout.  Obey My commands at all times.  Love your God and fellow humans with all your heart.  No low blows, no kidney punches, or feline jabs to the diaphragm.

And remember, the Goal is NOT to knock each other out; the Goal is NOT to Divide or Conquer.

Our goal here is to unite, empower, equip, find common ground; and, ultimately to enhance and deepen our relationships with God, fellow humans, our planet, our communities, our respective Houses of Worship, our families, and even with ourselves;

So . . . touch gloves and let’s have a good, clean, Truthful, Joyous, Loving and fun match.

And may the THOUGHTS that lead to SALVATION . . .
