Can't Beat This Deal!

In my opinion, the best subscription money can buy right now is First Things. But wait! There is more! You can get a great deal on it right now. In fact, if you act now you can get half-off the cover price for a year's subscription. That is right! Act fast by going to The Anchoress for the details (half-off is pretty dang good).

The infomercial is now over. Seriously, I started reading First Things when I was in grad school once I found out all of my professors were reading it. I thought I would try to at least act smart and started reading it myself. I still can't get enough of it.

The quality of the writing is consistently top-notch and the topics of the articles are relevant to culture, faith, and politics. They don't skip the tough subjects, but dive right in.

One of my goals for the next 5 years is to have an article published in First Things.

That is how much I respect First Things. Do yourself a favor and buy a subscription.

--On a related note, Ignatius Press is having a sale too.

So, you respect First Things enough to have them publish your writing? I'm now having an Inigo Montoya moment with respect to respect: "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

You, sir, are in need of some respect.

What Marcel really intended to reply with was to let me know that I'm a "goober." Not only would it have been an appropriate response, it would have also been a fine sample of the writing sure to be expected in a future issue of First Things.

I do know Marcel, and I respect him at least as much as he respects First Things. (You might have to let that one marinate for a bit.)

I am confused.

I am confused is my line. Father Neuhaus was a champion.
