Sunspots 11

Things I have recently spotted that may be of interest to someone else:

Orson Scott Card has written about the Jedi. He's not happy with them.

Rebecca Writes considers bear's tails, at (sorry!) some length.

* * * * *

Brandy has posted an amazing piece of artwork, by an artist who hates drawing, but is obviously great at it.

* * * * *

Plant Cultures explores the botanical connections between Asia and Britain.

* * * * *

The Micropolitan Museum is a site (see last week's Sunspots 10 for a link to another) with stunning pictures of microscopic organisms.

* * * * *

The National Coalition on Healthcare, a bipartisan group, with three ex-presidents as honorary chairs, has released a report, arguing for universal coverage in the U. S., and claiming that it would improve our current "system" significantly, at less cost.

* * * * *

Clint Hagen is posting summaries of the chapters of John Granger's book, Looking for God in Harry Potter.

* * * * *

Violet has an interesting post on "blogging and discretion."

Jill Carattini has posted a brief biography of G. K. Chesterton. I quote her quoting Chesterton:

You say grace before meals.
All right.
But I say grace before the play and the opera,
And grace before the concert and the pantomime,
And grace before I open a book,
And grace before sketching, painting,
swimming, fencing, boxing, walking, playing, dancing;
And grace before I dip the pen in the ink.

(For you youngsters, "the pantomime" was a form of entertainment--you may have heard of, or even seen, a mime. "Dip the pen in the ink" was before ballpoint pens.)

The latest Christian Carnival, a page with links to many posts by many bloggers, is here.
