One less "useless eater" to worry about. The "bio-ethicists" and ivory-tower academics who blithely discuss an ethics of utilitarianism and openly promote ideas like euthanasia and infanticide can take partial credit for this man's murder. By abusing their positions of trust, they help create a culture of death. The same way the Bush administration is […]

Hey, Tim Jones, here. Today marks the *official* launch of my long anticipated (by me, anyway… I always was a procrastinator) Daily Painting blog. Now, "daily painting" doesn't mean necessarily a painting a day… it just means I plan to paint daily, and I'll offer that work on the new blog (via e-bay). In practice […]

UPDATE: See below. It’s Christmas Eve, and Amazon.com’s homepage promises the last-minute holiday shopper that, with Amazon’s Gift Cards, you can “Give them exactly what they want — guaranteed.” “What they want” on Christmas, of course, is Christmas presents. Not everyone celebrates Christmas — about 5 percent of Americans don’t, and we shouldn’t forget them. […]

EDIT: Comments below revised. SDG here with another Christmas song from Straight No Chaser, this time a straight rendition of Silent Night. And also, I can’t resist posting a non-Christmas acapella song pointed out to me by JA.o reader Matheus on another subject beloved of JA.o fans. I have a few comments on this one […]

EDIT: The YouTube video has been pulled, but you can still catch SNC's 12 Days at AOL Music. SDG here with a Christmas-related post, if a non-religious humor one. I first saw the video below last year, but it definitely bears re-watching. Enjoy!

SDG here with a follow-up to my June post on family films of 2008. As the year draws to a close, it looks like my sense of 2008 as a good year for family films was on the money. In fact, the premise of my June post became a full-fledged article which appeared first in […]

At the request of The Masked Chicken, I offer this recent, brief Christmas post (from my blog, Old World Swine). More on the way as Christmas approaches. – T.J. I love this little passage on the power of myth; Father Christmas is not an allegory of snow and holly; he is not merely the stuff […]

Link to Part 1 SDG here with more thoughts on sex and marriage. Note: This post includes some explicit language regarding lawful and unlawful acts. To spare the sensibilities of those who would prefer not to encounter such language, I’ll put the whole post below the fold.
