What Happened Tonight

No matter who you voted for, not matter how much your heart is breaking or how much your heart is celebrating, let us remember: God is sovereign. As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is flawless. He is a… Continue Reading “What Happened Tonight”

Flow Chart

I didn’t get a chance to watch the VP debate because I was listening to a lecture on St. Patrick and Anselm. Most of the people I talk to think their candidate won, so that tells me nothing. I did, however, find this little… Continue Reading “Flow Chart”

Aaron Sorkin… still writing

Maureen Dowd’s column from this Sunday is quite entertaining… it’s a script between Obama and ex-president Bartlett (from The West Wing). Obama seeks his advice because of his failing campaign.
