X Marks The Spot

Thanks to reader Jim Phelan for capturing this beautiful and unusual sky from Wilson Avenue shortly before 7pm.


  1. It figures.........the X marks the end of Uptown and the beginning of Armageddon.

    Why does it begin here? JPUSA. That photo was taken practically in front of their front door. You just know when you think about Armageddon and Uptown they would be involved.

    Their prayers regarding the upcoming sexual abuse documentary have probably pissed off the Almighty. I imagine Saint Michael the Archangel and the Holy Ghost, I'm being traditional here, are getting ready to wreak some havoc on Wilson.

    Shit, and I only thought we had to worry about the bangers.

    Fire from the sky, locusts and all that stuff is just too depressing to think about.

    I wonder what it will do for my property values?

  2. IP no disrespect but I don't think the picture was taken near the JPUSA consortium. It looks to be looking west from in front of the Fire Station.

  3. “OH, East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet,
    Till Earth and Sky stand presently at God’s great Judgment Seat;
    But there is neither East nor West, Border, nor Breed, nor Birth,
    When two strong men stand face to face, tho’ they come from the ends of the earth!”
