We tend to write off celebrities as self-absorbed intellectual lightweights, and it’s great when people defy that stereotype. There’s probably more of this going on than we realize. Once these folks reach late middle age and have made a bazillion dollars and done a pretty full range of work in their art, they realize they have world-moving power at their fingertips. Some of course merely descend into drug abuse and Caligula-scale madness, but others want to leave a positive mark on the world. I suspect there’s more of this quietly going on than we realize. I believe Neil Young got into electric car development, etc. I hope it works and shows up BP. They had no real plan or equipment in place for the inevitable disaster.

Instructive examples on why interfaith work is a good idea
I deeply believe the problems in our country are more of the heart than of the head. Here are some youtubes courtesy of John Morehead of the Evangelical Chapter of the Foundation for Religious Diplomacy on Facebook. They speak more eloquently than anything I can write that interfaith work is a good

The controversy over Pink Slime - and what it means.
The controversy over pink slime is helping educate Americans to the fact that corporations are as beneficial to agriculture as they are to politics. Tom Laskawy put it pithily: “What pink slime represents is an open admission by the food industry that it is hard-pressed to produce meat that won’

How the "war on religion' backfired into a war on women
