Much is going on, and there's very little bandwidth left for creative things. Even painting is a chore.

I am trying to step up and help my brother, who has been handling the brunt of the support that our Mom needs. Lately, the paperwork factors have become a bear. So I'm trying to fill in a little. I don't know how he has shouldered so much for so long.

We continue to foster a wonderful little girl, but fostering comes with its own special set of stresses.

Our boys are growing well, and are making leaps and bounds in their learning.

Our baby girl is due in about two to four weeks (Marlene Ingrid Mae) and we've just gotten the house reorganized in anticipation.

The last few things from my Uncle's estate are dragging on tediously, due to one involved party (not family, and not the lawyers), and that's a drag.

I've managed not to make a fool of myself (I think) in commenting around on Assistant Village Idiot, and have been keeping up with my favorite bloggers.
I would especially recommend AVI's Preaching Teaching and Cooking as one of the clearest metaphors on the act of Christian teaching and learning I've read. Kobayashi Maru is always a good read, and he recently has found a reason to crow.

There's lots more good stuff out there. Hopefully I can add something worthwhile soon.

Let me get this straight...

...listening to our enemies' phonecalls in a time of war is a dastardly and underhanded infringment of civil liberties, but requiring the registration of bloggers as lobbyists is o-kee-dokey?

Just asking...

It has come to this...

...that it is less insulting to the intelligence to watch the Simpsons instead of the Nightly News.

A Petition for Active Duty Military Personnel, to the Congress of the United States

Media Lies has finally had it with the antiwar movement's snarkyness. Antimedia has posted an online petition for active duty military personnel. If you are active duty, and believe that the Congress of the United States should show greater support for our troops, go sign the petition. If you know someone who is active duty, pass this info on.

The posturing of the Congress in our time of war has been an embarrassment to the US and a comfort to our enemies. They need to hear it!

Suppression of Freedom

Puppet Show and Islamism, Heretical Librarian discusses how an ancient art form is being slowly forced out of Malaysian society.

After the Danish Cartoon Controversy a long but worthwhile read on the genesis of the brouhaha in Europe, at the Middle East Quarterly. (H/T LGF)

See-Dubya, guest blogging at Michelle's, reports on Iran's arrest and holding of a number of Christian converts, apparently to suppress their Christmas celebrations.

These are only three examples of the strangling nature of radical Islamism, not to say anything of the honor-killings, beheadings in public squares, the killing of homosexuals, the fatwas calling for the death of Muslims who convert to other religions et cetera.

Meanwhile, books are being published warning of the eminant takeover of America by Christian Fascists. That's because, as R.J.Dunn points out, the tens of millions of people who died in the 20th Century under the fists of Pentecostal dictators or in Evangelical gulags.

Bruce Thornton uses the reactions to Saddam's execution to illustrate the vacuousness of the modern Left.

Read, and be assured that there is some sanity in the world.

Duke University says, "Come back, all is forgiven!" to Collin Finnerty and Reade Seligmann

Durham-In-Wonderland has info, and many interesting replies in the comment section.

I generally dislike foul language and the US culture-of-litigation, but if I were Collin Finnerty or Reade Seligmann I would tell Duke a resounding "NO!" probably in foul language, followed up by a defamation suit.

If the anti-culture of the universities is to be overthrown, then Duke needs to be disassembled brick-by-brick by the tort attorneys, until alumni across the nation realize that their credentials are in jeopardy if they don't come down hard on PC-foolishness wherever it rears its ugly head.
