The decks we built, the lawns we nursed,
We’ll next see on March the 1st,
And soon we and our time-zone fellows
Will feel like human portobellos...
DST, you clock magician,
You moved the sun to good position.
You did your job and never pandered
To devotees of Eastern
I find the subject of national catechisms interesting, vis-a-vis the universal catechism. One might be tempted to think the latter is sufficient, but there are regional differences. I wonder if any Catlick blogger has examined differences in tone/emphasis between USCCB catechism and the universal one?
Interesting post from the Chesterton Society of Ireland on why Chesterton doesn't matter.
<--- Wow, the poll results on the left side of the blog on Republican prez candidates couldn't be more split. I kind of like Haley Barbour.
I'm not at all surprised Nancy Pelosi wants to maintain her leadership status. She who wrote the book titled "Power", seeks it avidly.
I find it shocking that Keith Olbermann was suspended for concretizing in money what he says every day in words. Jonah Goldberg writes:
"the larger problem with these kinds of rules is that they do little to prevent media bias and a great deal to hide an important form of evidence of it. Banning liberal journalists from giving money doesn’t prevent them from being liberal, it just gives them a bit more plausibility when they deny it...It doesn’t fool anyone, but gives the accused a lawyerly rebuttal to accurate accusations."
Pat Conroy has a new non-fiction book out about his reading life that would seem irresistible to me. It's less a question of if I buy it but when.
So here we have Jack Donvan, the all-seeing, all-knowing voiceover for ABC's This Week, insisting the midterm election wasn't all that historic. Fine, but is there any chance in Hades that if the Dems had won by that landslide that This Week would be the voice of moderation? Double standards reveal poor sportmanship.
