Brides-to-Be and the Blindness of Vanity

Nassim Nicholas Taleb, author of the books Fooled By Randomness and The Black Swan, once said the following about fasting:

The reason fasting in its various forms is not practiced as the best medicine is because industry has not (yet) managed to make a profit from it. Try to generalize this very, very simple point to other substractive treatments and you will understand what we got ourselves into with modernity.

Contraception, the Billionaire’s Wife, Toking Cathechists, and Teletubbies…

Thomas L. MacDonald, one of my newest Patheos Catholic portal classmates, brings all of the above together in the tragicomic opera that is the the unmoored modern Catholic.

Cardinal Dolan on the O’Reilly Factor’s “No Spin Zone” and an Idea to Get Him on Comedy Central Too.

Rocco Palmo scooped this up first, naturally, and it’s fantastic.


Wasn’t that awesome? Bravo Zulu.

But while Rocco waxes euphoric about our favorite USCCB quarterback getting seen by over 3 million (mostly conservative) viewers on Bill O’Reilly’s show, I’m thinking His Excellency should take his show on the road, and head over to Comedy Central and pick up the other viewers too.
