Holy Week with the St. Ann Choir

This will be the first year when I will not go to any of the services, I believe. I'll miss hearing Prof. KM sing.

National Siblings Day

Another fake holiday for a people without holy days or, for that matter, people possessing rather fragile ties with family, as the
modern nation-state would have it.

More Propaganda

I thought women's month was last month.

Natalie Merchant, "Giving Up Everything"

The Horseman

Got a ham/egg croissanwich from Whole Foods. It was bad, mostly because of the eggs but the croissant may be problematic as well. (Gluten?) The ham barely had any taste; the eggs were overwhelming and yet too soggy (like bad scrambled eggs rather than an omlette which would have been better for a sandwich). The only good part might have been the cheese. I have not been impressed with the prepare food from WF so far, except for the sushi.

Make Your Move

Featuring BoA (보아) and Derek Hough.

She has a big fanbase in Japan, but did she have to play a Japanese character? Wouldn't that upset her Korean fanabase? (Unless
she is playing a Korean Japanese who moved or was born in America. Unlikely?)

According to this review: "And Aya is Korean but lived her whole life in Japan." Can Aya also be a Korean name? Was the script originally written as such or was it adjusted in order to placate fans from both Korea and Japan?

She has a Korean accent when she speaks English, from what I heard in the trailer.

Another Uhmerican Being Provocative and Trying to Sell Books Before Pascha

We've seen this sort of poorly-argued garbage from Time and other magazines before. NPR: If Jesus Never Called Himself God, How Did He Become One?

Collin Raye to Speak on His Story

Another Commerical That Doesn't Do Empowered Women Any Favors

You could say Tina Fey is poking fun at herself, but nonetheless, the modern feminist is a consumer, and this ad caters to the consuming power of single women. I saw the long version (the complete version) last night at the theater, cut with many scenes of Tina Fey using her credit card for various purchases.

Lifesite News: "The Paulist Order has been serving the parish for just over a century. Bishop Barber had originally requested the Paulists as a whole withdraw from the parish but later altered his instruction. The priests who will be replacing Campbell and Edens are also Paulists and Barber later stated he was impressed by them."

Candidate for the "Best Warrior" Competition

The New Union Army has descended into self-parody. Such propaganda could become even more laughable, now that DADT is no more.
While driving up to Berkeley today on 880 I passed a car that had pulled over onto the shoulder? on the underpass (actually the very small portion marked off by the white line, right before the curve of the on-ramp. The three occupants (2 men, 1 woman)were kneeling and praying - Muslims.
