    Happy Easter to you too. I attended a beautiful service last night and I’ll be driving to my folks’ home for steak dinner in a little while, so working this morning hasn’t been too bad, not with those things in mind!

    Paul’s name got far-and-away the most cheers — but I saw a ton of ‘I Stand With Rand’ t-shirt-wearing folks stream in not long ago when Rand was supposed to speak. Just noting the full situation.

    Carson, Fiorina, Bolton — there’s quite a few candidates who didn’t make that photo up top. Speaks to how very crowded the GOP field is at this point.

    I’m normally pretty harsh on movies, but American Sniper just grabbed me and wouldn’t let go. Excellent story told well. I’m surprised the Iraqis like it — but only a little. It’s a darn good movie.

    It’s like Canada is America’s hair…and the U.S. is a balding redhead.

    Big miss indeed. Thanks for the catch, I just corrected it!

    Thank you, sir.

    Two reasons for “her”:
    1. I don’t have kids of my own (yet), but I practically raised my three much-younger sisters and
    2. “Multiple studies have found higher rates of SAD in girls than in boys.” Since separation anxiety is more common in girls than boys, it seemed reasonable to use the female pronoun.

    Don’t have details yet on the suspect.

    Best Beatles song ever? Quite possibly.

    18-34 just narrows the focus to more recent vets. Darker green = higher percentage of recent vets in the population.

    Of course, perhaps I’ve had too MUCH coffee — on cup no. 5!

    I can’t stand the way the Spanish Civil War is taught these days (if it’s taught at all). The communists were murdering clergy left and right…

    You’re in luck — the person who made this video made one for World War II as well!

    That’s on me — didn’t realized how small the Middle East would appear the first way I cut up the graphic. I fixed it with the closeup, thanks for pointing it out!

    I emphasized the past century because that’s when many radical changes took place in Protestant thought/teaching, while during that same time period the Catholic teaching did not change. I’ll look back through, perhaps that language could be clarified further.

    I quoted the Reporter, in this piece, since the AP story on the synod referenced Reese and I wanted to include his words (while noting that the Reporter is progressive, which the AP does not note).

    Thanks for the thoughts/understanding.

    Technically, an annulment says “This was never a valid marriage.” They have certainly been abused as a “loophole,” but annulments are not designed to be merely a “Catholic divorce.”

    Mm, but “strict” can have negative connotations as well. On the touchy subject of religion, there’s no way to ensure you don’t insult someone inadvertently.

    “Staunch” is a pretty positive word, in my mind, and “old-fashioned” is fairly accurate. While other churches have changed, the Catholic Church has not. Whether that’s good or bad is for the reader to decide.

    As in all things, my intent was to relay the facts of the story (and to counteract the AP reporting, which cites a bunch of liberal Catholic sources without identifying them as progressive).

    Also, full disclosure, I am a practicing Catholic.

    “Staunchly old-fashioned” is not an insult.

    It’s a joke. She’s the antithesis of classy.

    Noteworthily is an adverb.

    I am roughly nine years old on the inside, so you got that right I guess.

    Story updated. Organizers say it was cartel threats.
