The other day, someone wrote me that the most dangerous idea they could imagine is a Christian living out their faith. They mentioned something about this being against “dependence on the spirit,” whatever that means. (more…)
Joe Six-Pack here. You know, I’ve said it often in this space that Catholics can dig science. And I’ve written posts highlighting scientific events from time to time with the (Because Catholics Can Dig Science) title-ender. Is there such a word phrase as “title-ender?” I don’t know. I think I just made that up. (more…)
Folks are leaving town for the holidays, and I am now on holiday as well. And what that means for a blogger like me is that there are two things that are certain. 1) I will probably have time to write a number of posts over the next few days, and 2) most of them will go unread. This is likely one of those times. (more…)
All I’m sure of so far is that the Healthcare Flexible Spending Account level that you could set aside tax-free was slashed from $5,000 to only $2,500, effective January 2013. That’s one way taxes can be raised for everyone without income taxes rates being changed.

You may not have noticed it, but it is horrific…
No access to free beer. What the hell are we thinking?!
Also, is it me, or is that Vladimir Putin? I can’t believe he didn’t manage to get his shirt off for this picture.
Stay thirsty, my friends.
Two years back, I wrote a Memorial Day post titled To Remember the Fallen. I shared a personal story with you about a few of my brother Marines and asked you to share your prayers with us for those you wanted to remember as well.
Posts like that are hard to write, and I did not relish a repeat performance come the following year, nor for this year as well. Last year, see, I put it off and decided to watch a movie instead. It wasn’t a war movie, either. But, as the old saying goes, you can run, but you can’t hide.
