Luke is getting anxious


Luke Ford can’t wait to see himself on the cover of The Jewish Journal tomorrow. Ford is the controversial LA blogger who writes about everything from porn to politics to Orthodox Judaism. Here’s what he says on a post with the headline: “I’m Having A Hard Time Leaving The House Today.”

I don’t want to die before I see myself tomorrow on the cover of the Jewish Journal. I don’t want, before my time, to get hit by a car or shot in a drive-by or raped by a group of urban parolees. I have so much that I want to give to the world. I want to learn to love others and myself.

I spent about six hours with Ford last Thursday for this story. I ate with him; I prayed with him; I got way more material then I could ever fit into the paper. Tomorrow I’ll drop on The God Blog some of the good quotes that didn’t make it into print.
