Janez Jevnikar is amazing. It’s a relatively long video, but it’s worth it.

A Voice of Reason

I applaud Bob Corker for his principles.

“I think the American people recognize this debate for what it is – political posturing,” said Corker. “The real debate on Iraq will occur in the coming weeks when we take up the supplemental funding bill.

“Congress has spent far too much time debating non-binding resolutions and resolutions that claim to be binding, and I plan to vote against all of them – Democrat and Republican. Though I strongly disagree with their position, if members of Congress want to oppose the war in Iraq they should vote to cut off funding, not pass more meaningless resolutions.”

And – so far – he’s held true to his word.

The Immersed Baptism is My Favorite

Tom Lunde sent me a Church Compilation that made me smile.

It’s certainly a persuasive argument for modest first communion dresses. And I’m glad there was at least one proper lady in the congregation to force that groom to behave himself . . .

Shall We Sing?

Do You Have an Intuitive Understanding?

Anatoly Delm and I tried our hand at the math genius questions.

We both missed one. We feel smart, although the eight-year-old is apparently smarter.

Take a gander at the 100 Worst-Reviewed Films of All Time.

I’ve seen:
100: In the theater. I’m so ashamed.
66: On video late at night with friends. I was tired! I couldn’t run!
62: In the dollar theater. How was I to know? The Fifth Element was so good!
36: On video with friends. Wow, was it horrid.
19: On video with Andrew Mills. I didn’t care for The Whole Nine Yards, so I don’t quite remember how he talked me into it.

Rather than despairing these (approximately) ten hours of my life that can never be retrieved, I will instead acknowledge the 190 hours that I didn’t give away! Huzzah for me!

I don’t know that I quite have the knack.
