More Mass Murder of Children in the US (plus Tweets)

Seventeen children are dead in Florida and Trump tweets that it’s the FBI’s fault because they were too busy trying to find evidence he was colluding with Russia during the election campaign. WTF is wrong with this man? He went to Florida and met with the families of two of the victims for 35 minutes. Then he had a photo op with some of the first responders (which took longer), then he went to... read more

THE SUPERBOWL I’m glad the Eagles won the Super Bowl. I voted for... read more

Homily: Men Made Mad by Religion (plus Tweets)

Once again, most of today’s tweets are from yesterday. I put them in the post, then fell asleep watching the tennis (NZ Open). I’m not sure where I saw the joke recently, but it certainly applies to me right now. I don’t know what day it is, and I wake up to eat and wash. I have become a cat! A couple of things caught my eye this morning. Firstly, the new year has started in Pakistan... read more
