Try to do better the next time, Chuck.

P.S. Just want to add this eulogy from Fred Clark:

As “one of the leading spokespersons of evangelical Christianity in America today,” Colson helped to identify Christianity with a vicious, mean-spirited, and thoroughly dishonest culture war against women and LGBT people. He worked, passionately, to make that the core and the bedrock of American Christianity.

I don’t think that counts as living without scandal. I think that counts as being at the center of one of the worst scandals of this generation of the church.

The wisdom of a broken heart

Rumour has it


Howlin’ for you

Black Keys:

Where or when

Diana Krall:

Marat Sade

An old song with new resonance! Judy Collins:

Gypsie boy

Rory Block:


Sad and sweet.

Meteor shower

No good for here, since it’s supposed to rain, but maybe you can see it where you are:

The sky is putting on a free light show night. The Lyrid meteor shower is here, and it peaks in the wee hours, reports Discovery News. The Lyrids aren’t as big as the Perseids of summer or the Geminids of winter, notes ABC News, but a new moon tonight should make the sky nice and dark for optimal viewing. The advice at Space.com is pretty straightforward: Go out after midnight and look up.

The shell game

In European austerity, watch what they do, not what they say.
