Sunspots 411

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

The Arts: (Sort of) From Wired: the preview of a new Star Trek movie.

Christianity: Christianity Today has a discussion about Francis Chan and other radical pastors/authors.
Speculative Faith has a fine post on the resurrection.

Humor: I'm pretty sure that an introvert prepared this chart, distinguishing introverts from extroverts.

Politics: NPR reports on how the number of Americans on disability is growing, in spite of the Americans with Disabilities Act, and why. Most of it is not pretty. Disability, for some people who aren't really disabled, is a way of getting support when they can't find work. State governments have an incentive to get more people on disability, because it's a Federal program. Some parents have an incentive to have their children stay on disability, because, as long as they are, the parents get support. I should add that there are people out there who are genuinely disabled, and helping them should be part of the safety net.

Science: Wired has posted a stunning NASA photo of Mercury.
