From Mark, on Greta

The following comment was posted on an earlier thread, from Mark: You might have noticed I have had a number of posts in the last hour or so. I lost my partner this afternoon, the love of my life, my Greta. I am mad as hell about losing her and remember the many battles she [Read More...]

OMG! J-Lo is here and blogging!

Sorry.  My mistake.  It’s K-Lo. I really should have my eyes checked. Anyway: she’s better known as Kathryn Jean Lopez, the editor-at-large of the National Review Online (NRO, to the blog savvy) and she has a shiny new blog here at Patheos called, fittingly, K-Lo at Large.

Who drove the Komen story? The tweets tell the story

This is pretty interesting–and revealing: Last Tuesday, the Susan G. Komen Foundation announced it would no longer fund clinical breast exams and mammograms through Planned Parenthood.

A resolution worth keeping

From the President of CatholicCulture.org: Those of us with dogmatic personalities—and that includes many who take the Faith seriously in a hostile culture—have an additional spiritual hurdle, because we so often confuse our commitment to God’s principles with our own self-importance as God’s spokesmen. This can lead to a habit of self-righteous indignation, as if [Read More...]
