  • This quote from Bishop Walker of the Mt. Zion Baptist Church could likely be the first high-profile eulogy to include a reference to Twitter: "Next time you write about Steve McNair, drop your stone. Next time you text somebody, drop your stone. The next time you Twitter, drop your stone. Those of you in the barbershops, those of you walking the streets or on the corner, drop your stones." (The quote refers to the account of Jesus and the woman caught in adultery found in John 8:3-11 in which Jesus says, (in the KJV, as God wrote it) "He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her."
