In the news...
A smattering of interesting news stories this week...
- There's a good article about Francis Schaeffer in the March 26 issue of World Magazine. What's not to like about a man and his wife who opened their chalet in the Swiss Alps to all passersby who wanted to know more about Christian philosophy and life?
- ABC posted an article online announcing Terri Schiavo's death. Only she's still alive. Can you say "vultures"?
- The Colorado Supreme Court tossed out the death penalty for a convicted rapist/murderer because jurors in the case consulted the Bible in their deliberations about capital punishment. Never mind that the Bible provides the foundation for many of our nation's laws.
- The front-page headline in today's News Tribune is "Gregoire vows to save Sound". (In case you didn't know we were in danger of losing The Sound.) "We have met the enemy and the enemy is us," Gregoire said. "Our robust population leads directly to the health problems of the Sound." Price tag: $31.5 million.
- Spam-lovers unite! Senate Democrats want to tax canned meat to raise $11 million a year. What next? A tax on chocolate? They wouldn't dare.
- There's a picture in the paper of Richard Gere dancing with Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi. Koizumi is called the "Japanese Richard Gere" because they resemble each other in looks. That's weird.
