So Rod Dreher’s sister is battling cancer. It is nasty. Their faith is extraordinary. Here’s his latest post (I think)
There are 8 comments on it.

There are 85 comments on it.
85-8.
That’s a stomping.
Does it mean anything? Maybe not. Rod’s been documenting his sister’s battle with cancer for a couple weeks now. The response has been beautiful.

It is kind of akin to rearranging the chairs on the Titanic isn’t it? Facing mortality should be a required course for us all… life is better if we live with the reality of our own deaths at the front of our mind.
