The first weekend of Lent is past already and here are some items you might be interested in:
**The Astros #1 fan, a religious sister, has died.
**An abortion doctor in Arkansas says he "welcomes" the 40 Days for Life protesters. Pray for him.
**Here is one bishop who is engaging culture in a way that shoots straight to the heart.
**CMR has America's next top (role) model.
**Msgr. Charles Pope asks - what makes someone an anti-Catholic bigot?
**I have been watching the Olympics and admit they can be a lot of fun. But, I have to agree with some writers (this is my personal opinion and you are free to disagree) that certain sports don't belong in the Olympics. For example - if you don't have to exert yourself (curling anyone?) or if medals are awarded because of subjective judging alone (ice dancing), then is it really a sport. No, I am not saying I could compete in either...and I know that other sports might not make the cut depending on how we define "sport". Then again, if poker can be considered a "sport" and be on ESPN - then why not Olympic blogging or texting?
FYI - I don't mind disagreement, if you comment on my comments, but keep them nice.
**Something else I don't understand. How a guy can buy a "virtual" island for tens of thousands of real dollars and make money off it.
