I find it amusing how often I hear trend-oriented web developers asking me when I'm going to update my websites to be "modern". If by "modern," they mean the form-over-function JS nightmares that most websites have turned into, you can expect that by next Fleemsday.

@joshmisnerphd@twitter.com Now is as good a time as any to mention...one of the stories in this book is actually dedicated to you! Thanks for everything you taught me.

I'm so excited! Six years of heart and soul went into this novel. I can't wait for y'all to meet Noah Clue.

What happens when an unobservant private investigator and a fastidious legal secretary team up? They turn upside down!

I'm a little late in seeing the news, but HUGE CONGRATS to @LoweMurmurs@twitter.com and the @spokanesymphony@twitter.com! This was exactly the outcome I'd hoped for, and I hope to come see more from this fantastic and dynamic conductor soon!

And, yes, the same is true for the last few Presidents, although the current administration has taken the breach of Constitutional law to a whole new level.

I'm getting sick of hearing Trump supporters talking about how "powerful" Article 2 makes the President. Clearly none of them have read it; Article 2 does not provide for, and even explicitly contradicts, MANY of Trump's presumptive acts of office.

The detention facilities in the U.S. remind me of the early phase of the concentration camps. At this point, they're in some ways less human than even the Japanese internment camps! At what point do we start calling this what it is?

When you stop learning, you start dying; when you stop teaching, you start decaying.

I say this because it seems some experts in act as if sharing knowledge with those less experienced depletes their storehouse of knowledge, and so avoid it. This is a patently absurd notion.

Knowledge is not a commodity like gold that can only be possessed by one person at a time. Knowledge grows when you share it with another; even that which you know is freshened and compounded in the sharing.

Consider these modern injustices, and then read the words of Fredrick Douglass on this very day over a hundred years ago: "...for revolting barbarity and shameless hypocrisy, America reigns without a rival."

On this , consider the face of slavery today: the immigrant denied human rights, the poor man working 80 hours a week to keep his family from starving, the women denied equality in the workplace, the persons condemned for no greater crime than their color...

Pray for government, speak up for truth, but pin ALL your hopes on CHRIST ALONE. "Do not put your trust in princes, in human beings, who cannot save." -Psalm 146:3

"On the other hand, I hated the growing atheistic movement, which was fostered and promoted by the Social Democrats and the Communists. Their hostility toward the Church made me pin my hopes on Hitler for a while. I am paying for that mistake now..."

, next time you're tempted to back ANY politician as the apparent "solution" to a problem in the world, take a warning from minister Martin Niemรถller's regret...
