I took Josh out in the Honda Civic to practice driving a manual transmission. We used a large parking lot at a now-closed movie theater where there's plenty of room and very few obstacles. Josh (and I) suffered through lots of herky-jerky whiplashing and engine kills. Josh said it was scary, like the car was having seizures and he couldn't control it. Perhaps it would be easier if he could drive using a game controller. But then I would have to learn THOSE controls. "R2, square button, L1. No, not L2! L-ONE!!! Gawd!"

The predecessors of today's Baptists were persecuted for their faith by the very Christians today's Baptists claim founded this nation as a Christian one. You can read more about the book here.
