Assorted brief non-liturgical commentary, in no particular order …
– I heard on NPR yesterday that US physicians support a public option 73-27 percent, despite AMA opposition. A college chum offers some sense in the face of anti-choice arguments.
– Who said it, Ralph Nader or Rod Dreher?
When Obama got elected, I thought that one good thing that was going to come out of having a Democrat in the White House and Democrats in charge of Congress was that Wall Street was going to have to get its house in order. Surprise! They’re no better than Republicans when it comes to this stuff. There really is one party in this country when it comes to coddling the financial sector, isn’t there?
– Don’t look now, but if you’re not an echo chamber pro-lifer, LifeSiteNews has you on the clock and the wordcount. Not only do you have to agree with everything they say, but now you have to use the same number of words and beat the shot clock.
– In between my first two meetings last night, I caught the tail end of MNF on my laptop. Amazing. One internet commentator related that some sport magazine listed the Buffalo Bills as 10th on a list of the most snake-bitten franchises of all-time. My first thought was that seemed rather low. My second was that the Bills have actually never been bitten by a snake … the python of misfortune has strangled the life out of that team.
