In Case You’ve Ever Wondered

This somehow seems a natural followup to yesterday’s post:

According to the Big List o’Saints*, the patron saint of the Internet is St. Isidore. Despite having lived around 600 AD, when broadband really wasn’t widely available, he was nominated as the patron of computers, computer techs, and the Internet in 1999.

Here’s one of his Readings:

Prayer purifies us, reading instructs us. Both are good when both are possible. Otherwise, prayer is better than reading.

I think we should demand some kind of a recount. Anybody who’s overly concerned about purity has no business running the Internet.

*Not its real title.**

**Although, frankly, given that there’s patron saint of knife-grinders and a saint you’re supposed to pray to for in-law problems, it’s hard to think of it by anything grander.
