Let's get started, shall we?
Update: just found these two at Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam: one goes after a WaPo columnist named Susan Jacoby. I remember her from an anthology I was forced to teach out of. Her mind moved in a circle of clichés then and still does. The other reports on a Twin cities symposium sponsored by New Ways Ministry - a gay and lesbian 'Catholic' group trying to figure out where they fit in by seeking acceptance of the same old ways.
TSO had to change his parody blog's address, but that didn't stop him from committing some at his regular place.
Dom Bettinelli and his wife (scroll to Mar. 10th) need your prayers.
Tom Fitzpatrick has some advice for the Pope (in all due respect, of course).
Erik Keilholtz has a really good camera.
Sparki needs prayers for her husband and for Dads in general.
Susan, of Lilac Rose, hadn't been feeling quite right of late, and tells her story. Does the word Paxil mean anything to you?
Ellyn vonHuben has cute kids. She also lets Oprah in on a secret.
Chris has cute kids, too. Except his are boys, and thus less likely to stay that way.
Need something to read for Lent? Lane Core's got it.
The Inn at the End of the World is banned in China. I always knew he was subversive.
Elena takes semi-Catholic Shawn (Shaun? Sean?) Hannity to task, but her page takes so long to load, I didn't have the patience to go back and get the link. You can get it from TSO. Which is where I got it. So you don't have to go there after all. TSO's, I mean.
Over at the quiescent In Dwelling, I found this fun-to-read bit of middle-aged nostalgia, which transpires in "The Land of Sandra Dee."
Sort of off-the-wall: this girl puts up a post complaining about a lack of comments:
why doesnt anybody respond?
hey i am just aS GOOD AS ANYONE here so why must nobody respond to my posts ?????????????????????????????????
does anyone have a comment?i am very stressed out my parents were just divorce my brother is taking drugs and my mom just found out that my 2 year old cousin is deaf. what should i do to get my mind off of thisUm-hmm. 7 comments. Problem is, 5 are spam, one was deleted, and the other's from a predator. One of the spammers signed in as Kevin Jones. Nah. Couldn't be.
If you liked my Scientheology post (no link provided because not enough of you liked it. Scroll, baby, scroll) you might also like Lawrence Auster's post in which he links to, in fact reproduces, a Peter Steinfels NY Times article, which explains that people like me aren't the only ones going after the Dawkins, Dennett, Harris types. The atheists are after them too.
While we're on the subject, we have another highly naturally selected post from Kevin Jones, who points us to an article discussing the closeness between Darwinism and some of its descendants, in this case the Social version. The connection is no accident.
Narwen's been quiet. The last two comments on her last post were made by TSO and me, something about drinking (big surprise). Hope we weren't the cause.
Some good posts by Steve Burton at RR (all links within should be followed and read, comments too), with Ed Feser supplying an amusing followup to the second.
And finally, an old acquaintance has returned to blogging, with an apparently slightly different focus. He has only one blog on his blogroll, and it ain't mine. Can you call it a blogroll if it has only one? A blogroll has to roll, doesn't it? It's a sorities paradox. How many blogs have to be on your roll before you can call it a blogroll? Hat tip to TSO, who's not on it either.
Is that enough for now?
