So lets take another trip around that wonderful place that is my blogroll:
At the Hermeneutic of Continuity Fr finds a wonderful thing, a balanced story about the Pope:
It is by no means a hagiography and I wouldn’t agree with everything he says, but it is a relief to read something from a commenter in the secular press who knows what he is talking about. John Hooper has done us a service with this objective appraisal which is a welcome contrast to the Catholic baiting of the Times.
The article in question is here.
You know for the first time ever I actually fell asleep at the keyboard in mid post so I’m continuing this post 6 hours later…
Over at Robert Stacy’s he reports on Ann Coulter’s First amendment demonstration for our Canadian neighbors.
Assuming that Dudley Do Right doesn’t catch her first, tonight Ann speaks at the People’s Republic of Ottawa. Should she escape from that Stalinist gulag, on Thursday she will speak in Calgary, and then return to America to hang out with me at Saturday’s Vegas Tea Party.
Meanwhile it’s a good thing we have Tim Blair to take a closer look at environmental law in the Illinois:
Wind, solar, burning thousands of tyres … it’s all good:
With just five words quietly slipped into legislation, Illinois lawmakers are moving to include tire burning in the state’s definition of renewable energy, a change that would benefit a south suburban incinerator with a long history of pollution problems.
Hey Illinois? Isn’t that where the president came from. I wonder how many words like these were quietly slipped into the healthcare bill that was just signed?
Next time I’ll try to be more awake when I’m posting.
