I was trying to find the words the the poem that ends "And there I stood with my piccolo" not sure if Meredith Wilson wrote it or just used it in his autobiography. I love that.

Wilson wrote:

Quote
"An old Moravian flute player once told me a story that went like this: ‘A very important king hired a whole orchestra to play for him one night during his supper, just because he felt lonesome. The orchestra played great, and the king was so delighted that he said, ‘Boys, your music was great, and just for that, you can all go to my counting house and fill your instruments with gold pieces.’

"I can still hear that clatter as sack after sack of golden tiddlies streamed into the tuba and slithered down the neck of the bassoon and spilled out over the bells of the French horns.

"And there I stood with my piccolo."

Evangelical leader steps down amid allegations
The Rev. Ted Haggard denies a man's public charges that the pastor of a mega-church had been paying him for sex.
By Stephanie Simon
Times Staff Writer

November 3, 2006

DENVER — The president of the National Assn. of Evangelicals resigned Thursday after his Colorado Springs, Colo., mega-church opened an investigation into allegations that he had repeatedly paid for sex with a male prostitute.

The Rev. Ted Haggard, who regularly consults with the White House on policy matters, told a Denver television station that he "never had a gay relationship with anybody" and had been faithful to his wife of 28 years.

[I believe him. Trading dollars for a BJ with a whore is not a relationship.]

A father of five who dresses in blue jeans and drives a Chevy pickup, Haggard is well-known, and widely praised, as an energetic, charismatic pastor who has pushed to expand evangelical

A lengthy profile in Harper's magazine — which is quoted approvingly on Haggard's website — recounts how he built New Life Church in part by hanging out at gay bars and inviting the patrons to come to his sermons and be saved.

[If I had a buck for every time I heard "I’m not queer, I'm just writing a book" I'd own a tropical island!]
...
Under Haggard's leadership, the National Assn. of Evangelicals, which has 30 million members, reaffirmed a policy statement that describes homosexuality as "a deviation from the Creator's plan" and calls same-sex relations a sin that, "if persisted in … excludes one from the Kingdom of God."

[And no doubt, puts them in the Ninth Circle along side the Elmer Gantry preacher-hypocrites that solicit sex from prostitutes ]
...

"We owe it to him to hear from him," Cizik said. "Let's not crucify the man until we've gotten the facts."

[I'll supply the hammer and nails!][size]

Evangelical Leader Accused of Gay Affair Resigns
By CATHERINE TSAI, AP

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Nov. 3) - The president of the National Association of Evangelicals, an outspoken opponent of gay marriage, has given up his post while a church panel investigates allegations he paid a man for sex.

The Rev. Ted Haggard resigned as president of the 30 million-member association Thursday after being accused of paying the man for monthly trysts over the past three years.

Church member E.J. Cox, 25, called the claims "ridiculous."
"People are always saying stuff about Pastor Ted," she said. "You just sort of blow it off. He's just like anyone else in the public eye."
[Seems some other things are getting "blown" off!]

Haggard, 50, was appointed president of the evangelicals association in March 2003. He has participated in conservative Christian leaders' conference calls with White House staffers and lobbied members of Congress last year on U.S. Supreme Court appointees after Sandra Day O'Connor announced her retirement.

From a Conservative Newsletter

Quote
Republicans have, however, focused their efforts on a constitutional amendment—that’s an amendment to the Constitution —when existing law has already decided the homosexual “marriage” issue smartly. They have touted an under-funded, over-hyped and possibly “virtual” border fence that should do a fine job of keeping dangerous Americans from sneaking into Mexico. Last and quite possibly least, Republicans have banned the export of horsemeat for human consumption, thus eliminating one of our most satisfying exports to France.

Glad to see that even in the darkest hours, some keep a sense of humor.

I like this from Corey's Journal
Quote
The original production used a 27 member cast, and a 27 member full orchestra. This new production has merely ten cast members. To make things slightly more interesting, they are also the pit. Yes, that's right...Patti LuPone, playing Mrs Lovett, runs around stage hauling a tuba...in a miniskirt...showing off "the worst thighs in London". Yeah.

The Associated Press reports:
Quote
Haggard told reporters that he bought the methamphetamine for himself. He says, "I was tempted, but I never used it." Haggard told reporters he bought the meth because he was curious -- but that he then threw it away.

He also says he never had sex with Jones. He says he received a massage from him after being referred to him by a Denver hotel.

Andrew Sullivan chimes in:
Quote
So he bought - bought - crystal meth, and was alone naked in a hotel room with a male massage therapist who says he is a male prostitute. But he never snorted and he never screwed.


Anybody know a studio that will green-light this fictional tale?
