My 91-year-old grandfather was working in his yard in Crockett, Texas, last week when a tree fell over on him. It just snapped up by the roots and fell over as my grandfather tried n unsuccessfully n to outrun it.

Poor C.S. Lewis! The deceased author of "The Chronicles of Narnia" and "The Screwtape Letters" never had the advantage of reading the newspaper you now so casually peruse.

If you're reading this to find out what Culturally Competent Practice is, I'm not too much of an authority on that. I can't say much about the phrase except that my friend made it up as a phony book title for an art school project. The full title was something along the lines of "Culturally Competent Practice, Understanding Faith and Family Values in America." It was quite catchy and I always wanted to reuse it in some fashion and now is as good a time as any. However it does relate vaguely to today's forthcoming topic which is the first of the three words in the aforementioned phrase.
