This is my site. Cool, huh? If you don't like it, well, I guess it lives up to its name for you, then.

So last Thursday evening, we were getting the kids ready for bed, and it was a bit late. It was time for a story, but because it was late, neither of us wanted to read, say, War and Peace. Of course Jacob picks out a rather lengthy book. So instead of reading the whole thing, I read the front cover, then flipped the still-closed book over and said, "The end." Jacob thought that was the funniest thing ever. He told me to read it again, more slowly. So I read the front cover, opened it up to the first page, read one sentence, then flipped the book shut and said, "The end." Same reaction from Jacob; hysterical laughter, then an urgent request to read it again, "more slowly". We did this about 5 times, each time reading a sentence from one more page. It was just a magical moment, really, the kind that I wish could last a lot longer than it does. So I needed to record it somewhere -- here ya go.

Check out this article in the Washington Times (motto: Us Moonies aren't all bad!). Hentoff is a strange one; it's not too often you meet a pro-life atheist who thinks William Douglas was the greatest. However, in this case, I couldn't agree with him more. He certainly is not a cheerleader for one side or the other, Washington Times notwithstanding.
