    By Ilana Angel

    May 18, 2011 | 9:29 pm

    I love reality television.  By love of course I mean I am addicted to it like a drug.  Not a recreational drug that you did in college and forgot about, but rather like heroin where you are certain if you don’t get it, or in this case watch it, your life might fall apart.  Sad and...

    For more on Ezekiel’s vision of the dry bones:

    Dry Bones cartoons and the Dry Bones Project are called Dry Bones because of the 2600 years-old writings of the Biblical Prophet Ezekiel.
    Like a police sketch artist trying to portray what a witness is describing, the cartoonist has done his best to draw what Ezekiel claimed to have seen.
