A very well written response to Global warming over at First Things. It addresses the historical, scientific, and religious dimensions of the debate. Must reading for anyone who is concerned about the future of our planet, of even just our economy.
Who needs a stick and safety pin? Why not try just grabbing the fish by hand? Because, noodling is apparently illegal in Texas. Some people are trying to change that. My favorite part?
Mr. Knowlton says noodling opponents “want to paint people who do this as lower than a snake’s belly in a wagon rut.” Many people are under the erroneous impression that “everyone who noodles is an uneducated, toothless hillbilly,” he says, noting that he is a college graduate. He also has all his teeth.
Thanks to LMCS 5th VP Dr. Murray for the pointer.
