Though acting in behavior does not generally fall into the category of sins that would require full confession to a bishop, many of those behaviors are damaging to the person doing them and those around him.

In the 1840’s, it took a couple of months to get a letter from the east coast to the west cost, all the way around the southern tip of South America. Eventually, the advent of the pony express cut it down to around 11 days. Since that time, the delivery of messages has improved to […]
