WE DID A test run on the Google+ "hang-out" feature. Fun. Of course, Kent was in the room next to me but once they get that thing ready for prime time (it was a bit slow) it could become the feature that overshadows the postings to the various circles. Email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you need a Google+ invitation.
OPEN CULTURE has links to about 400 free movies -- many classics -- that you can watch online. ~ link
REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL candidate Tim Pawlenty's wife Mary has a Covenant Church background. But they wandered far from the faith and became Baptists. That mistake could have major implications in his quest for the White House -- especially when considering the reputations of past Baptists in the White House.
Bill Clinton was a Baptist but he was impeached and there were those other indiscretions. Jimmy Carter was a good Baptist but the consensus seems to be that he didn't do a very good job in the White House. And then there was Harry Truman. What can we say about Harry, other than that like Clinton and Carter -- he was a Democrat!!!
However, if you reach back far enough, President Warren G Harding claimed both the Baptist and Republican labels. And I ask you -- do we really want another Warren Harding in the White House? ☺
