Time Out

Due to lots of stuff going on (combined with intense personal laziness), I have fallen quite behind on my Bible reading (according to schedule, I’m in mid-June).  My personal commitment to myself was that blogging would be behind Bible reading, so I’m going to have to take a break for a few weeks.

Since I know Forester is also a Coen Bros. fan, and likes Raising Arizona specifically (although probably not as much as Barton Fink), I wanted to hear his (or your) take on the following question that T & I couldn’t come to a satisfactory answer on. What is the ‘lone biker of the apocalypse‘? With the same road-runner tattoo (although over his heart, not on his arm), the bronzed baby shoes, the “Mama didn’t love me” tattoo, is he (in some secular sense) H.I.’s original sin, his carnal nature?
