Sunspots 473

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

The Arts: Rebecca LuElla Miller points out that The Wizard of Oz is not Christian literature (and the movie isn't Christian, either).

Computing: Gizmo's Freeware recommends a quick and easy text editor, Jovial, which produces files in Rich Text Format. It's easy to enter some commonly used non-keyboard characters.
Gizmo's Freeware also has an annotated list of on-line sites for seeing if some of that stuff on the Internet is really true.

Wired says that Facebook is (I am not making this up) going to listen to the TV you are watching, and then keep track of what you watch. Hmmm.
Humor: How to stop children from sneaking into the candy supply.

Politics: The Veteran's Administration and Military Health Care aren't the same thing, National Public Radio tells us. Both are important, and both have their problems. (The recent publicity has involved the VA.)

I hadn't thought of The Wizard of Oz as Christian or against Christianity. Just a story. I don't know if it influences children against Christianity if they are taught by their parents and church to trust God and to put their faith in Him.

That was my idea, too, FancyHorse. Miller has a different idea. On reading her post, I see where she is coming from. I'm still not about to say that Christians should avoid watching/reading the Oz material.
