Brit Hume on why he’s retiring:

I certainly want to pursue my faith more ardently than I have done. I’m not claiming it’s impossible to do when you work in this business. I was kind of a nominal Christian for the longest time. When my son died (by suicide in 1998), I came to Christ in a way that was very meaningful to me. If a person is a Christian and tries to face up to the implications of what you say you believe, it’s a pretty big thing. If you do it part time, you’re not really living it.

From another interview:

And since my son died, I have been, really, I felt rescued by God and by Christ. I have an intense desire to pursue that more ardently and have it be a bigger part of my life than it has been.

    I don’t know anything about Brit Hume. I do know enough about Fox News not to watch it. But my only comment is this:

    AudioSurf is on super discount on Steam right now for only $2.50. (This week only!) You haven’t had any gaming posts recently or I’d have posted the news there.

    Just to give this added pop culture significance, I just played a course built off a chapter from Obama’s Audacity of Hope. Kinda weird. And I’m the only person so far to have played AudioSurf to that particular chapter. I guess this is one way to get through the whole book on mp3…
