A dash of common sense!

Two unanimous Supreme Court decisions - you still have first amendment rights if you're unpopular, and the Senate isn't in recess if the Senate isn't in recess. The 9-0 nature of the decisions are somewhat refreshing, as both appeared blindingly obvious to me, I'm glad to see it wasn't just me.

Why spiders are awesome

Unless you like flies and roaches, I guess.

Mark Shea roundup

At least one homeless person will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead
Apparently politicians have been putting spikes in places under roadways where homeless people like to sleep. Isn't that just wonderful.
Looks like Senate Dems are trying to override any and all laws that restrict or regulate abortion in any way whatsoever. And I thought Roe v. Wade was "settled law". I guess they don't like the fact that various restrictions are allowed under their untouchable ruling.

A lot of Wisdom stuff, and a little Exodus, an interesting perspective. Along with a bunch of snark, of course.

Making decisions consciously

It begins:
Nearly every problem you face is temporary.

But these temporary problems cause immediate pain. And we often let this pain drive our choices and actions.
So true.

The importance of abortion narratives

An insightful article by the lovely and overly well educated Lauren Ely. Yay Columbia.
Like The Wrongs of Women, modern abortion narratives do more to condemn the world that supports abortion than to destigmatize abortion itself. By hearing women’s own stories, we understand the material as well as spiritual and societal deprivation that leaves pregnant women unsupported.

The Decline and Fall of IBM

A most interesting eBook by Mr. Cringely. It does, I think, confirm some of my grumblings about IBM over the past few years as a company that's not making enough of anything.
