Maybe I should have given up posting about Andrew Sullivan for Lent, since Amy Welborn is doing such a good job. She makes some very astute points about Jesus, sex, and silence.What I did give up for Lent was liquor. I wish NBC's teetotaling were as brief. Gah.Also, there's an interesting debate about whether a liberal education conflicts with a pre-professional education at the YFP Blog. I think Gene is downplaying the tension between a culture dedicated to philosophy and a culture that has … [Read more...]

WE HAD TO DESTROY THE CHURCH IN ORDER TO SAVE IT: I don't really know where to begin with Andrew Sullivan's crop of posts today (scroll down). I don't want to address everything he says, so I'll just take on a couple points and then explain part of why I react so strongly against what Rod Dreher called "the Oprahfication of Andrew." As always, his comments are in bold, mine in plain text."Thinking about this again today, and reading many of your perceptive emails, it became even clearer to me … [Read more...]

Been spending most our lives living in the Blog Watch paradise...(Uh, there aren't actually any blog links here. It's just news about this site, and two cool links.)First, I have not forgotten that I promised to write about immigration. But this week is super-hectic--and last night I was up way too late playing canasta rummy with some fun Republicans (not an oxymoron! --despite the fact that canasta rummy is truly the game of old ladies) so I won't be posting much today either. Expect … [Read more...]

Don't... don't you watch blogs? You know I can't believe it when you say that you don't need blogs...Den Beste: Peace is the absence of an evil, not the presence of a good (great stuff).Zonitics: Small businesses need Living Profit laws! (This is one of the points I've been trying to make over at The Farm Dole; but this Zonitics fellow is much more creative than me. Unfortunately for him, Wendell Berry has already proposed this law.)Amygdala: Star Trekkin' throughout the universe... A … [Read more...]

Happiness is a watched blog (bang bang shoop shoop)I spent way too much time today wrestling a horrendous monster of an article on welfare reform, so this is about the best I can do. To all the people who sent in slogan suggestions, thanks--I'll print the best of them on Friday. For now, check out the list over at Yale's Finest Blog, which is also hosting a running debate on Catholic universities for reasons that escape me.Charles Murtaugh: "I'm down with death, too, don't get me wrong," but … [Read more...]
