New Wine in Old Bottles

February 12th, 2015 by MC

Our current political debates are a conflict of unrealities. The leftist unreality is that consequences do not exist. The conservative unreality is to act as though the Left does not exist.

How else to explain this(more…)

Attempt no landing there

February 03rd, 2015 by Zen

Europa, moon of Jupiter, has deep oceans and a thick icy shell. It is also, one of the best places to look for non-terrestrial life in solar system.  NASA is making a push to make an Europa mission a reality, probably in the mid-2020’s.

Citing concerns with radiation belts, (and not Arthur C Clarke), apparently we are not going to attempt a landing there.

New Temple Announced for Iceland

February 03rd, 2015 by Zen

The first new one in a thousand years!  But they will just teach the ancient Viking myths as “poetic metaphors and a manifestation of the forces of nature and human psychology.”

And no animal sacrifices.

In Lieu of Soft Words, a Bullet

January 30th, 2015 by John Mansfield

“A driver exited his vehicle with a knife and charged another man, who was critical of his driving, police said. The man who didn’t like the driving pulled a gun and shot the man who had the knife.” (link)

Younger Missionaries, Older President

January 23rd, 2015 by John Mansfield

A former stake president explained once that in his calling he was supposed to recommend potential mission presidents to his leaders. Mission presidents needed to be under 60, or up to 65 in cases of exceptionally robust health and vigor.

When the ages for young missionaries were lowered, and thousands more made themselves available for service, and dozens of new missions opened, that required finding more mission presidents than before. One of those tasked was Stephen Hansen, 71 at the time of his call to preside the Utah Salt Lake City Mission. Wednesday, Sister Carol Hansen, his 69-year-old wife died quite unexpectedly, though naturally. It seems likely that President Hansen will be released early.

Whiplash

January 23rd, 2015 by MC

A few nights ago, in the sleepy haze that follows nightly prayer but precedes full unconsciousness, Mrs. MC and I discussed how we discipline our kids, what we might change, etc. Nowadays, no right-thinking parent ever defends corporal punishment, even if they sometimes practice it. It’s time outs, privileges withheld, that’s it.  (more…)

I Like This Prinicipal’s Style

January 13th, 2015 by John Mansfield

“An Alabama middle school principal wants to stockpile cans of corn and peas in classrooms for students to hurl at possible intruders as a last resort defense.”

“‘The canned food item will give the students a sense of empowerment to protect themselves and will make them feel secure in case an intruder enters their classroom.'” (link) I hope the kids get to practice chucking the cans during PE.

Vader approves

January 13th, 2015 by Vader

It warms my heart to see my minions helping a handicapped boy this way.

That, or the warm feeling in my chest means something has shorted out.

Personal Feelings and the Communities They Birth

The 12 Days of Christmas

December 30th, 2014 by G.

Some say that ever ‘gainst that season comes
Wherein our Saviour’s birth is celebrated,
The bird of dawning singeth all night long:
And then, they say, no spirit dare stir abroad;
The nights are wholesome; then no planets strike,
No fairy takes, no witch has power to charm,
So hallow’d and gracious is the time. –Hamlet

 

John C. Wright is in rare form.
