A "rational response"?

Today, in the New York Times, there is an article (reg. required), that talks about how people are throwing away their old PCs, in an effort to rid themselves of spyware, viruses and the like. "throwing out a computer 'is a rational response,'said Lee Rainie, director of the Pew Internet and American Life Project..."

The big book on my table

I went out and got the book today. I wasn't about to sit waiting for it last night, I figured today was soon enough. What book is it? Yes, of course, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. As if you haven't heard enough about it yet. I've read about 10 pages so far, and am looking forward to a quiet evening with it.

Friday Cat Blogging

Well, the back story to this cat is that it is the cat of the friend I'm staying with until I take off for California in early August. She's sweet although a bit shy and skittish. But once she gets used to you...

Her name is Jenny.

Today's mantra

My mantra for today: We will never stop terrorism until we understand and address the suffering of terrorists. Yup. You read it here. Call me a wuss. Call me un-American. Call me unsympatetic to the victims of terrorism. Call me an ally of terrorists. Call me a stupid bleeding heart liberal. Call me a coward. Call me whatever names you want. Use this as an example post for all the silly liberals you like to excoriate. I don't care. I will say this until I am blue in the face, and until the end of my days.

London, etc.

The bombing in London is also keeping me awake tonight (that's a link to the page on Wikipedia about the bombing - one of the amazing applications of wikis.) Brewing in my head is a ministry blog post on evil - should be out of my brain in a few days. But at the moment, I'm caught thinking about the ways in which this might affect our lives.
