Well, Did we All have a Wonderful Rainbow Sash Day Yesterday? For some of us, it was also Pentecost Sunday, some sort of religious thing practiced by Christians.

More Self-Infantilization in the Black Community Jayson Blair’s upcoming book is tentatively titled “Burning Down my Master’s House“. He’s not a moral agent responsible for his action, y’see.

Cheap. Shallow. Dumb … but still pretty funny in places: The Cornier This is what I like best about blogging: no editor to tell me that I can’t link to that site since it disagrees with Our Basic Ideology and we don’t want to appear to give aid and comfort to the Enemy. I certainly [Read More...]

Speaking of ecumenism A reader writes: I really appreciated your post on the difference between true and false ecumenism.
