Religious Zombie?


The perfect "Get out of Jail" card, that is, the perfect trump card for this person and others that believe likewise: "The Lord will..." What comes to mind immediately upon reading this: 1) How does she know, or how would anybody know, which candidate has the deepest faith? Is there some kind of ...>

Intrade Electoral Vote Predictor


I don't put much stock on these projections, predictors, polls, or other fuzzy words that start with P that purport to provide us potential outcomes of the elections, promote particular understandings of voter behavior, present likely turnout, or propel us to worry, be less peaceful, and develop a p ...>

McYogi’s Mindful Music Video


Check McYogi's video on Obama. He even offers gassho at the end: And do visit McYogi's website. Quite intriguing. ...>

Oh, and Happy Birthday to Me!


Forgot to post about it, but today is my birthday. One of those, deeply reflective days? No, it hasn't been. I did have an eye doctor appointment and besides continuing to realize the inevitability of aging, nothing that I have not already pondered in previous birthdays. Then again, my experience ha ...>

Zena Forest Documentary Project


I was lucky enough to receive a mini-grant from the Center for Sustainable Communities at my University to carry out a photographic documentary project on a tract of land called Zena Forest. It is a small grant, it truly won't cover the expenses associated with the project, but the opportunity and ...>

Goofy Break


About the first "political-non-political" thing I saw this morning. It is cute and silly, until they get to the end and have McCain say something about Palin that I just find beyond rude.

Here's how she put it: i’d like to find a way to honour all the good people on th ...>

California Proposition 8


Here's a "remake" of a video originally put together by proponents and supporters of Prop. 8 in California (Prop 8 would move the state to amend its Constitution to ban same-sex marriage). The remake was done by opponents of Prop. 8. They've substituted "interracial marriage" every time a speaker s ...>

Elizabeth Dole & Atheism


I certainly hope Elizabeth Dole loses her race. Here's her latest ad: The ad implies that Dole's opponent, Kay Hagan, does not believe in God -- even superimposing a voiceover of a woman saying "There is no God" over an image of Hagan. Well, apparently that was not Hagan who said that (she is a ...>

Obama’s Primetime Moment


I'm sure the usual Republican suspects will pan Sen. Obama's thirty-minute infomercial as nothing more than a stunt revealing of arrogance and presidential presumption. They will continue the "measuring the drapes" line of attack Sen. McCain has used in rallies. And once again, they will completely ...>
