So far I’ve spanked the monkey at 88 mph… and isn’t that what the web is all about?
I sometimes feel that some people believe an argument from scripture is more likely to be true if the result is, well, ugly. Within the reformed tradition, this approach seems to find particular resonance in discussions of worship. We know that God desires true worshippers, those who will worship him in spirit and in truth. But I feel some are biased toward reading spirit and truth as antithetical to beauty.
Five and One. I suppose if you haven’t lived in Dallas for the past 8 years it doesn’t make your jaw drop…
Is ‘Harry Potter’ by the book? I’ll admit I’m planning to see the Harry Potter movie at some point, but I haven’t read any of the books and am curious if folks thought they were a worthwhile read.
Bill Clinton, the former president, said yesterday that terror has existed in America for hundreds of years and the nation is “paying a price today” for its past of slavery and for looking “the other way when a significant number of native Americans were dispossessed and killed.”
Is this guy for real? Osama killed thousands because we used to have slaves?
Okay, everything seems to be in good working order. Comments, archives, it’s all up and running.
I am switching to dotcomments for my feedback. It stores the comments locally, so even if it doesn’t provide an elegant interface, at least I will have some control over the comments. Seems prudent. However, it will probably be a short time until I work out the kinks. Right now, it insists on claiming their are 22 comments against any post that has no comments.
Reblogger seems to be down… send me an email if it you know it is working and I’ve simply goofed up the code on my page.
What strange creatures, these blogs. Out of the impersonal medium of the web comes this weirdly revealing format of exposing one’s thoughts to the public. Perhaps its no different than the games played all along in the chat rooms (“hi. i’m skeletor, pay me homage!”). The blog captures a reflection of that which one wants to reflect, a revealing display in and of itself.
