(Dateline OC.net Palace): The crowds of OC.netizens had been buzzing in their speculation that a new Moderator had been named. As if to confirm this rumor, white smoke was seen to rise up from the chimney known to be used by the Bowling Alley/Brew Pub/Darts section of the Office Complex.

FrChris strolled out onto his balcony afterthe customary resplendant trumpet fanfare.  After acknowledging the crowd's wild applause, he spoke:

"After a series of discussions and debates, we are please to announce the new Moderator for Religious Topics in the Free For All Board:

Schultz!"

The crowd immediately roared their approval:

AXIOS! AXIOS! AXIOS!

AXIOS!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Congratulations, Schultz!

Thank you all!  I hope I can live up to the challenge.

He always seemed mod-like anyway. A well deserved "promotion."

Funny thing, that.  My wife told me after my present band's first performance that I have to "stop acting like a message board mod onstage".  Apparently I was born to do this ;)
