Pastor Confession: I'm Just Warming Up! 

As Bill Bolling's crazy pastor at Shady Grove United Methodist Church, I know no one takes anything I do seriously enough to thwart anyone's political career other than my own ("Top 10 Reasons Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling Isn't Running for Governor," Street Talk, March 26).

Nevertheless, given the information that I'm being posted to YouTube, I will do my best from now on to play my banjo in the middle of every sermon, more frequently inflict my impersonations of actors, politicians and famous clergy upon the congregation, and insist, beyond the bounds of all rationality, that the Orioles will win the World Series and the University of Virginia will win national championships in football and basketball.

J. Brooke Willson,
Senior Pastor
Shady Grove United Methodist Church
Mechanicsville
