Had no idea that the Amish ever did anything violent.  Very strange.  Contradicts what I'd always believed.  Sorry for the folks that were terrorized.  Wonder what the motivation was?  Why did they do it?  Very strange?

On the aside I just bought a new Schick Ultra razor yesterday and my wife cut my hair nice and short this afternoon using electric clippers.  I love getting a haircut because it's so easy then to wash and dry my hair!  I keep my face clean shaven and shave every day.

I have always held a special respect for the Amish. I always thought that if anything disasterous happen to America, they would be the ones living just as well as they did before or coping with the change easier than any of us non Amish. They live simple lives and I admire that. I guess this proves that even the Amish can have disfunctional sub groups that don't follow the life style completely. I still respect the Amish and hope they catch the Group that is giving them a bad rap. Shaved, tared and feathered I hope.

They are not as bad as those Mormon fringe groups which believes in polygamy and marrying 10 year old girls. One of their leaders was just convicted of raping young girls. You may live in Texas, but those Mormon settlements can be found all over the West.
  Anyway, it is nice to see a Mormon running for president.

That is pretty lame. Islam believes in polygamy too, and the marriage age is 6 (six), following Aisha´s example. And that is *mainstream*. So those Mormons are not very impressive.

But criminal Amish... now that is something new.

This is just about as bad as it gets. Compared to others, even their form of terrorism is peaceful. I love living near the Amish. I just went to a local farmers market this afternoon and I always go to their booths. Got some of the best white and yellow butter corn on the cob you can find. I also picked up a homemade cherry pie for the football crowd tomorrow and I got a couple jars of homemade apple cinnamon jelly that went on some toast as soon as I got home. God, I love harvesttime.  :)
