  • By Rev. James L. Snyder
    Under normal circumstances, I am a rather cool, calm and collected person. I say normal because not everything in my life is normal.  It takes a lot to rattle this cage of mine but once rattled, look out whoever rattles it.
    I am saying all this to get to my point, which is, somebody hacked my computer e-mail account this past week. If you think I will take this sitting down, oh, I guess I am sitting down right now, but I assure you I will not stand for something like this. I have never been so rattled in my life.
