for those of us . . . er, you . . . still hanging onto lenten vows

roy rivenburg of the l.a. times has some ideas about facing temptation. any story that includes the following reflection is worth a look: Since the dawn of time, humans have wrestled with temptation. "I don't understand myself," St. Paul lamented in the 1st century. "I want to do what is right but I do not do it. Instead, I do the very thing I hate." And that was before Krispy Kreme and Internet porn. seriously, i struggle w/ depriving myself of "instant gratification" probably more than all of you put together, but rivenburg et al. point out (in a secular medium, i might add) that it's a culture-wide pandemic. interesting reading, plus some tips on how to "urge surf."
