1. There’s a new Death Cab for Cutie album coming out very soon. Follow this link to watch a little video that gives a few details about the record. Death Cab is one of those cutting edge bands who everybody talks about. Sometimes these bands aren’t really that good, but Death Cab is quite good, and they make haunting, melancholy music that is well worth your time.

2. Reid Monaghan commented yesterday about my description of science as a “double-sided blade.” He questioned whether there is any scientific inquiry that is negative or harmful. I cannot perfectly answer that question, though I can point you to an interesting article that my boss Al Mohler wrote covering this topic. It will provoke thought, and I think it does show that the phenomenon of unbounded scientific inquiry is as morally complex as it is exciting.
Have a nice weekend, everyone (and thanks, Rick and Ethan, for the “I Am Legend” info).
