37. I'm glad you mentioned that, Droopy, that's another thing...
...internet access. My friend does have internet access on the job, but they're not allowed to look at ANYTHING not work-related, not even on their lunch hour. So anything she reads, she has to come home and fire up her slow phone connection to read anything online, the last thing she - and anyone else who works on a computer all day - wants to do. (...except us, LOL).

And her husband, a very sweet good-hearted man, is probably totally computer illiterate. There's no telling where they get their "news."

Good luck with your sis, I hope she comes around too! I know we all sometimes lump the non-believers into the 'stupid' or 'brainwashed' category, but sometimes that's just not the reason.
