Romans, Shmomans

I'm having trouble finding time to write about the Romans passage. In the interim, if you're hankering for some interesting biblical stuff, you should visit Scoots's blog. Scoots is very smart and entirely too educated, and those two things combine to produce interesting and fun things like his latest post:

The difficultly for the reader in accepting the parable is accepting that both of these facts are true: the money we handle is not our own, and our access to managing it will soon come to an abrupt end.

The post has some jucier bits, but I don't want to give away too much of the punchline, so I'll just leave it at that.

I'm looking forward to more from Scoots: I expect his blog will have a fairly high signal-to-noise ratio. And that's pretty important to me, because I don't really like that other kind of blog ... you know, the kind that has a post a day telling me all about what the author had for lunch, punctuated with little emoticons that tell me how he is feeling?

Anyhow, click your way over to "Sccoots" and check it out.

Right now I'm feeling: all verklempt.

I'll give you a topic: Rhode Island is neither a road nor an island. Discuss.

P.S.~I heard that your son said that new word I taught him after I left yesterday. !Estoy una tia primera!

I believe the states proper name is "The State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations", it deserves your respect.

Have you been to Rhode Island? I mean, I know it's old and all, but I don't really see what the point is anymore.

Thanks for the plug, Matt.

C'mon kids! Have you never seen Coffee Talk with Linda Richmond on SNL? If not, you are missing out!

Thanks for the lead. Mine will be high signal-to-noise too.

Have you never seen Coffee Talk with Linda Richmond...?

I think I saw Coffee talk with a friend of mine at Barnes & Noble the other day (I couldn't quite make out what it said), but I don't who this Linda Richmond person is.

Btw, just my luck, started my blog and immediately blogspot developed some kind of temporary glitch.

My url IS valid if anyone's tried it without success... Just have to wait for the blogspot storm to blow over... thanks...
