Sunspots 546

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

(in action, maybe in name) A police officer in Iowa noted that a car had six children with no car seats. Instead of writing them a ticket, he bought them six car seats and helped install them.

Relevant muses on Christianity in Peanuts.

I'm glad that I missed it, but there has been a lot of chatter about Starbucks having Christmas-colored cups without "Christmas" on them. Christianity Today and Relevant say that Christians should back off of complaining about this.

Ken Schenck tells us that "We must not let any other thing take God's place in our life."

The Environment: Wired discusses the possibility of resurrecting recently extinct species. By no means everybody is sure that we should do that, even if we could.

Health: (and Computing) FiveThirtyEight discusses the problems of making health records electronic. There are several.

Politics: Senator Ben Sasse, freshman Republican from Nebraska, pointed out what's wrong with the US Senate, in his maiden speech. (Which is not a partisan speech, but a well-thought-out criticism of the way things are.) "No one in this body thinks the Senate is laser-focused on the most pressing issues facing the nation. No one."

Science: NASA thinks that Phobos, one of the two small moons of Mars, may be coming apart.
