You don't need to know this - but here goes: due to some acquired infantilism, I feel compelled to fall asleep listening to the radio.

When push comes to shove, it ain't the science that's going to lift you up - it's the belief, the spiritual side of life, that's going to lift you up, no matter what religion you are.
