Sunspots 202

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

NPR reports on the most recently discovered of Saturn's 60-odd moons -- this one is in one of the rings.

Slate argues that claims that Democrats are going to bleed the rich into poverty are wildly exaggerated. Raising taxes a little on people making over $250,000 probably wouldn't be necessary if it were not for some wild spending, and lack of regulation, during the previous eight years.

Don't expect Leonard Pitts to Twitter us. As he says:" . . .every new advance in communications from telegraphs to Twitter has been sold as a means of perfecting human relationships, allowing us to interact more easily, understand one another more readily. But it hasn't happened yet."

Henry Neufeld on what Old Testament passages we think apply today, and why. For example, did you know that Leviticus says that aliens living in the land should be well-treated? He's really writing about application of the Bible to our lives, and he continues here .

Twitter is colluding with Big Brother.

I guess. I've stayed away from Twitter, at least so far.
