Meanderings in the News
1. Meanwhile, the conservatives over at The National Review unleash a series of explanations of the Scott Brown election in Massachusetts: Mark Steyn, Rich Lowry, Charles Krauthammer, Michael Knox Beran, Jonah Goldberg, Deroy Murdock, Larry Kudlow and then Thomas Sowell provides his take on how Republicans can win over black voters.
2. I followed their advice.
JDSalinger.jpg3. James Wood: “Terrible catastrophes inevitably encourage appeals to God. We who are, at present, unfairly luckier, whether believers or not, might reflect on the almost invariably uncharitable history of theodicy, and on the reality that in this context no invocation of God beyond a desperate appeal for help makes much theological sense. For either God is punitive and interventionist (the Robertson view), or as capricious as nature and so absent as to be effectively nonexistent (the Obama view). Unfortunately, the Bible, which frequently uses God’s power over earth and seas as the sign of his majesty and intervening power, supports the first view; and the history of humanity’s lon
ely suffering decisively suggests the second.”
4. The same topic at WP’s “On Faith.”
5. Good story of rescue in Haiti.
8. What’s most noticeable to you in this report?
9. I wonder if anyone will turn in “Blue Parakeet”?
