I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ, and him crucified

I'm in the lowest pit of hell right now
...that is, in my reading of Dante's DivineComedy. I might have finished this last "canto," or chapter, last night, but this is where Dante and his guide, Virgil, encounter the "king of hell," Old Scratch himself. So I thought those might not be the best images to have in mind as I drifted off to dreamland! To fortify myself for this last episode in hell -- before we move to purgatory -- I am having breakfast at Denny's.
