Today is Sunday, 14 March 2010.

What did Glenn Dreck and Sarah Impale ‘Em give customers in exchange for their $45 to $125 (wowzer!) tickets?


Big government is bad. Low taxation is good. National debt is bad. Democrats are demons.

Big government is bad, except when a Republican is president and, like Reagan and the 2 Shrubs, piles up record national debt. Big government is good when it comes with big military, and big intrusions into bedrooms, not boardrooms. You can trust the fox to guard the henhouse.

(As a good Mormon. Dreck surely believes that, after death, he’ll become a god, in charge of his own planet. Does he believe in limited divine governance?)

Low taxation is good, because low taxation means more free government services for all. (That’s the new DreckMath.)

National debt is bad, unless when created, as noted, by white Republican presidents and congresspersons.

Democrats are demons, particularly when they have Black skin and blacker hearts.

Several hours of orgiastic self-abuse and smutty conspiracy theories: Priceless.

Albert Einstein was born on this date in 1879.

Maurice Merleau-Ponty, French philosopher, was born on this date in 1908. I’m particularly fond of his book title, Adventures of the Dialectic.

Karl Marx died on this date in 1883.

Fannie Lou Hamer, Mississippi civil rights activist, died on this date in 1977.

Today is Pi Day, in honor of the mathematical constant.

"Democrats are demons, particularly when they have Black skin and blacker hearts."

Has Glenn Beck ever said Obama is evil based soley on the color of his skin?

What do you know about the Sojourners? I've received an e-mail inviting me to "turn myself in" to Glenn Beck as a Christian who believes in social justice, in response to his statements on Fox News that social justice is a "perversion of the gospel."

I happen to be a Christian who believes in social justice, but I find myself uninformed about the Sojourners. You appear to be well-read and informed, and I haven't known you yet to be without an opinion. I don't always agree with you, but I feel we're coming from the same neighborhood of beliefs.

Any info for me, Encyclopedia Brown? (Okay, this isn't exactly a mystery but you do seem to be a human encyclopedia.)

First became aware of Sojourners in 1971, when their magazine was originally titled "The Post-American". Their community endures as evangelicals with genuine, radical Christian commitment to social justice. Dig them at:

Rev. Jim Wallis is their public face much of the time.

Haven't thought of Encyclopedia Brown since I managed a bookstore in the early '80s. Being a human encyclopedia: the fruits of a misspent youth, reading voraciously instead of sports. The compliment is appreciated.
