    Mike,

    Good job starting the discussion about this issue.

    The FAQ you are citing “Good Questions, Good Answers” was one of the first pieces of Dharma I ever looked at. I would encourage anyone interested in Buddhism to give it a look.

    I believe it is by Ven. S. Dhammika, and should be found easily on Buddhanet.net

    Finally, I got around to giving AntiSniveler a shout-out.

    Off-topic (surprise, surprise), but you might be interested in a book by the Christian minister Robin Meyers, “Why the Christian Right is Wrong.” I’m planning to write a review of it sometime next month…

    Mimus: Thanks for the shout-out, and for the right-on remark over at Spontaneous Arising (about that certain other spiritual leader who threw over the money-changer’s table). My dad sure liked it, as did I.

    Sorry to have been relatively uncommunicative on your blog lately. Please don’t remove me as a contributor, like DBK did when I went inactive on him (bastard!)(just kidding!) — I do see myself kicking down with a post from time to time. I love everywhere there.

    Have a great friend, little brother.

    One this same note. . . What is it that makes us truly wealthy? It would have to be a commodity that is not permeated by the impermanence and decay. Perhaps when it all comes down to it we are left with the Three Jewels (Buddha, Dhamma, and Sangha). What else could be more precious to us?
