ONLINE DEGREES come of age in Asia ~ NY Times

"FLORIDA LEGISLATION banning saggy pants at schools is sitting on the desk of Gov Rick Scott." That's one way to validate deviance. ~ link

BUT what does Islam have to say about pornography? ~ link
I LOVE Monsters and am looking forward to Monsters University, the prequel coming in 2013 ~ link

I DIDN'T realize that Seattle Pacific University offers an MDiv degree. And it does not appear to be a totally new program there. (I guess I was dozing.) The experts keep predicting the decline of the MDiv but more and more schools keep adding it. ~ link

ARIZONA is so wasted --
State officials and supporters like to say Arizona has the first true medical marijuana program in the country - but it didn't take much for me to become a state-certified pothead. With the help of a naturopath and an out-of-state certification mill, I breezed through the application process and scored my very own medical marijuana card. ~ link
"REFORMED churches everywhere are switching from communion bread to these." (For the uninitiated, that is a theology joke. It plays off the TULIP acronym that some Reformed Calvinists use to summarize their theology. It's actually quite clever -- wish I'd thought of it.) ~ link

WHY Eugene Peterson's new book, The Pastor: A Memoir, is a must read for the church planting pastor:
...It became more and more clear that when God forms a church, he starts with the nobodies. That's the way the Holy spirit works. Those are the people he started with -- Zechariah and Elizabeth, Mary and Joseph, Anna and Simeon -- to bring our Savior into the world. why would he change strategies in bringing the salvation community, church, this congregation into formation?
IF I COULD have one technology wish -- it would be for a device that would neutralize the bass in the sound systems of the cars that drive through the neighborhood -- shaking the pictures on our walls and paining my ears. Suggestions?

Brad, they have this new technology that would be perfect for stopping the bass speakers...and it's ideally suited for Arizona. It's called a shotgun.
