Apologia pro vita sua…Kinda

posted by David Gibson

 In my defense, I’ve had computer outages and family reunions and a few days of single-parenthood, which is always a bracing reminder of what many parents go through all the time.

And this weekend it’s off for a week’s vacation.

Anyway, hence the long absence. Apologies to those who have checked in faithfully, and I’ll try to put up a few of the many interesting items that are out there. And maybe some thoughts about family reunions.

We have a couple of main roots, one from France and the other through upstate New Yorkers by the name of Cronkite.

Pax.

I’m just glad to hear you’re okay! One never knows.
Family has a way of sucking up all that “free time” and the good intentions of writing, creating, etc.
So, not to worry – glad you’re back! :)

Moving on, and many, many thanks...
So...my recent vacation and related absences also coincided with an offer from PoliticsDaily.com to cover religion for them, as editor Melinda Henneberger announces here in her roundup on the site's very successful first 100 days. That means, in short, that I'll have to sign off from blogging h

Calvin at 500, Calvinism 2.0
If you thought you knew John Calvin--who turned 500 last week--you probably don't know enough. For example, that he was French, born Jean Cauvin. And if he was in fact scandalized by dancing, he was also a lot more complex than that. I explored the new look Calvin in an essay at PoliticsDaily, "Patr

Signs of the times: Obama's eye
Yes, this photo of Obama ostensibly eyeing a young woman (apparently a 17-year-old delegate from Brazil--where are her parents?!) at the G-8 Summit is the hottest Google search item. And of course the question of what Obama was thinking is a leading Fox News story. So it goes, even as the
