Blog Fodder: May-July

I’ve let my Blog Fodder folder get way out of hand. Time to purge…

R.I. school to begin microchiping students: Disciples of Tim LeHaye be forewarned!

McCain’s default on property taxes: For some reason I think a big stink would have been made if a certain Senator from Illinois and his wife failed to pay taxes on their property for four years. Call it a hunch.

Texas man allowed to murder immigrants: Some call it “Texas Law.” I call it a gross miscarriage of justice.

RELEVANT Magazine’s Q&A with Barack Obama: For the curious.

  1. Fujitsu’s wooden laptop…can we say steampunk?

    Enjoyed the Rapture Ready articles, partly because they led me to StuffChristiansLike blog comparing versions of the Bible with GI Joe characters. Had to link that one to dh.

  2. flogging reenactments aside. The Holy Land Experience actually has a pretty impressive library as and artifact collection. I had to go with my inlaws one weekend.
