Sunspots 387

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

Humor:  (dark humor) Pippa the Weathergirl on global warming.

Leonard Pitts was going to rant about something, but thought about it. Whoops!:
This was going to be a rant.
Then I thought about it, which was a mistake. As any experienced ranter can tell you, thinking about it has the unfortunate tendency of turning a good, clean rant into a muddy quagmire of fine points, conditional sentences, and digressions as delicately balanced as a Swiss watch.

Science: National Public Radio tells us that there are strange black spidery things that appear seasonally on Mars. We don't know what they are.

Politics:  National Public Radio reports on something you may have noticed by its absence: Neither Romney nor Obama are saying much about their religious faith. It's probably better that way. What do you get when you mix religion and politics? Politics.

This is not exactly politics, but here goes: There's a big fight about feral (wild) cats. Should they be caught and euthanized, caught and sterilized, or let be? Feral cats have contributed significantly to the endangerment of other kinds of animals.

Ken Schenck, Dean of the Seminary, Indiana Wesleyan University (I am also a Wesleyan) on why pastors/churches should not endorse any particular political candidate.
