Warnings to anyone who is Catholic and 'sensitive' to such humor.
A recently deceased fellow stands before St. Peter and askes to be let into Heaven. St. Peter asks his religion, and the fellow replies 'Episcopalian.'
St. Peter says: 'Welcome to Heaven. Go to room 24. Please be very quiet as you pass room 8'.
Another man arrives at the gates of heaven.
'Go to room 18. But be very quiet as you pass room 8'.
A third man arrives at the gates.
'Go to room 11, but please be very quiet as you pass room 8'.
The man says, 'I can understand there being different rooms for different religions, but why must I be quiet when I pass room 8?'
St. Peter tells him, 'Well the Catholics are in room 8, and they think they're the only ones here'.

Mundane Journeys through an Amazing World
begins with Interstate 80. Not the most engaging topic, I know, but when you think about it, I-80 runs all the way across the North American continent linking San Francisco and New York. It's not just a ribbon of asphalt, it's a portal to far away, almost magical places.
My visits to major cities like Tokyo, London and Washington DC have been business affairs. I haven't rode a lot of roller coasters or ridden in open air buses, but I have visited with senators, bought yams from the back of a truck and barely escaped complete embarrassment when I was introduced to Matt Wiener in Vegas.
As I wrote the book I realized that over the years exotic, distant places have become more like the mundane places I've called home. But, as it turns out, there really aren't any mundane places, only mundane ways of looking at things.

the world... nutty.
