When you're connected to business folks on LinkedIn and other places, you never know what lurks inside the beast on the other side of the email address. One of these monsters evidently is an "evangelistic leader" and included me today in a very big GROUP email (see below) requesting money for her church. I'll let you, my dear reader, imagine what my response to her entire group was.
Oh, I forgot to mention that she called me a month ago about business and introduced herself as Evangelist Linda Hood. I asked her if "Evangelist" was her first name. She laughed and said, "Oh, I've never been asked that before. No, I'm an evangelistic leader." I said, "Oh, I'm an atheistic leader." The conversation didn't last long. Here's her email:
