    I enjoyed hearing advice from a "regular guy"! I really appreciate interviews with philosophers, theologians, historians, etc., but it's also good to hear from somebody like myself who is self-taught and learning along the way.

    I also appreciated the link to the Monty Python skit. I hadn't seen it in a long time.

    I wonder if there's a way to use their Department of Silly Walks sketch in apologetics? Or the "This Parrot is Dead" routine. Those are classics as well.

    Thanks, both, for the feedback. I would love to use more Monty Python, but it'll have to fit in the context. I do have an upcoming blog entry on the use of questions that involves a clip from the movie My Cousin Vinny. It's also humorous. Stay tuned!
