... to Show the Other Side of the Church.
Okay, this is just kooky. Would you part with $3700 for a pair of rubber soled shoes (second entry)?
Well, several preachers are spending aplenty. Perhaps two multi-million dollar mansions and two private jets are not enough opulence (see Joel Osteen).

YUP | 1 Jon Stewart Lashes Out at Hearing on 9/11 Responders Bill: You Should Be Ashamed of Yourselves
Earlier today, Jon Stewart (born John Stuart Liebowitz) gave an emotional testimony to a congressional committee that was half empty.

Believe it or not, I have a friend in Maryland who went twice. For a short visit, it's actually safe. You are probably exposed to more radiation taking a coast to coast flight.

In 1939, at the age of thirty-five, Theodor Seuss Geisel was tinkering with an invention that was doomed to failure. Geisel had published a few books under the name Dr. Seuss, but he was hoping that a device he had patented, the Infantograph, would be a money-maker at the techno-utopian New York World’s Fair, which was opening that year. “If you were to marry the person you are with,” the banner that Geisel designed for his pavilion asked, “what would your children look like? Come in and have your INFANTOGRAPH taken!”

When the Swiss architect Peter Zumthor released his original plans for the new Los Angeles County Museum of Art in 2013, the building was meant to resemble an inkblot, oozing across Los Angeles’s horizon like an enigmatic brushstroke. Planners had hoped it would do for LA what Frank Gehry’s sweeping, silver Guggenheim outpost had done for Bilbao, attracting tourism to the Spanish city in the 1990s. But in subsequent revisions, the dramatic, inky color of Zumthor’s original design became a flat beige (critics believed a black building would have been too difficult to keep cool), and a wing that was supposed to meander over the La Brea tar pits—the inspiration for Zumthor’s first design—was moved to an adjacent parking lot. The latest renderings show a building even shorter, and smaller, than before, straddling Wilshire Boulevard like a toll plaza. People have compared it to a coffee table and an Italian roadside restaurant. The whole project is estimated to cost a cool $650 million, nearly one-fifth of it coming from taxpayers.
