Obviously her faith wasn't strong enough

I have to find it amusing that there's a LAW against it:

"Handling reptiles as part of religious services is illegal in Kentucky. Snake handling is a misdemeanor and punishable by a $50 to $100 fine."

I can hear the cops..."Nobody's speeding or parking in handicapped spots today, want to head over to the church to write some snake handling tickets?" ;-D

I had to look it up out of curiosity: Snake-handling is illegal in every state except West Virginia. Things that make you go, "Hmm". ;-)

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Not to get too OT but I lived in WV for a year after I graduated college. It was hardly as bad as the stereotypes make it out to be. But I lived right outside Charleston which is a normal city and I never strayed into the boonies. ;-)

Yeah, WV's rap comes from its rural areas which live up to the hype. I live in a unique spot that's 10 minutes from the MD border, but it's that little piece of Maryland... basically if you drive south from where I live on I-81, you can go through 4 states in less than an hour; PA, MD, WV and VA.

I've been to Wheeling... nothing exciting there
