One Line, A Church Gets Cheeky, Is Darfur the New Ethiopia?, and Vonnegut
The blog Slice of Laodicea isn't known for hit's sense of humour. And they keep the trend going. I'm sorry, they are stilly and stupid and I wouldn't necessarily show them to my church. But dag it's nice to see the church showing their silly side.
I first heard about Darfur from Reno. I'm going to plead ignorance. I admit, until he blogged about it I couldn't point out where Darfur is. To put it plainly: Modern Genocide. It's sickening what is going on there. And the never ending conversation has now turned their sights to the problems there. You know how I feel about this. Conversation good, action better. At least this time they are doing something. Not a lot, but it's a start. One thing I have noticed is that people never think about Africa except once every 10 years or so. First it was Ethiopia, then Somalia, now it's Darfur. People get angry. Send a little money their way. Heck, maybe even a concert or two. Hopefully this time around we'll actually remember. Sorry for the snarkiness. I can't help wondering how long it'll be before we forget these people too.
And for no reason at all, here's Kurt Vonnegut on The Daily Show. After all these years, and with age still catching up with him, he's still the man.
