Over at Why Now?, I couldn't resist goosing Bryan for a small typo, when in this post (which is a good one, go read it), he refers to the Air Force's newest fighter, the F-22 Raptor, as the "F-22 Rapture". (Bryan may have corrected it by the time you read this, if you see "Raptor" in the text, but I swear he did have "Rapture" there when I read it; though now the thought strikes me that he might well be making a subtle little joke that went "zing"--right over my head. If that's what you meant, Bryan, forgive me; unfortunately I'm developing a tolerance to caffeine these days.)
However, this morning I'd also been traipsing round recent posts by members of the Rocky Top Brigade. If C.E. Petro's postings on how the Air Force Academy and the Air Force Chaplain's Corps is dominated by evangelical Christians are accurate, "F-22 Rapture" may not be mistaken, but rather prophetic.
