31 Oct: Daily Homily (#MuellerTime) and Tweets

As you can imagine the Twitterverse is full of tweets about two things today: Halloween and the arrests resulting from the Mueller investigation. I predicted a couple of days ago that Paul Manafort would be the first arrest. Yesterday, though I didn’t say it anywhere publicly, I began to think there would be a second person. I had no idea who it would be though. Now Manafort and the second person,... read more

I find the whole thing extremely worrying as it’s hard to see how there can be a peaceful resolution at this point. Personally, I oppose the calls for independence.

When the officer... read more

26 Oct: Daily Homily (Weinstein and Determinism) and Tweets

In today’s fast moving news cycle, things get old too fast too often. Today Jerry Coyne was one of those who wrote a post about the a$$ho£e: ‘Harvey Weinstein, creep or psychopath?’. He looks at... read more

25 Oct: Daily Homily and Tweets

Most of those I follow on Twitter are of a similar mindset to me. As a result, most of the tweets from the US I see agree that Trump is a bad president and the country would be better off without him. However, I’m aware that I’m not seeing a representative cross-section of the country. That came home to me on of 8 November last year. That night I found out something was wrong with the... read more
