Amusing on Inauguration Day

I read a story about a church service President-Elect Barack Obama attended this morning. One of the speakers, Bishop T.D. Jakes from Houston, tried to inject a pop-culture sf reference into his message. He didn't quite succeed. Here's a quote:

"I say to you as my son who is here today, my 14-year-old son -- he probably would not quote Scripture. He probably would use Star Trek instead. And so I say, 'May the force be with you.' "

Well, we can be reassured that Obama was wincing along with the rest of us fen.
Wow. Thanks, AT!
Kids these days, with their light sabers, their IDICs, and their rock music. I tell you :)
Trust the Force, Scotty!
Saddest thing I saw recently was an exchange between a kid and his dad. Kid said "Who's your favorite star wars character? Mine's General Grievous." Dad answered "Han Solo." Kid replied perplexed "Who's he?"
