On Snow

I received some new cross-country skis for Christmas, but did not receive any snow. In fact, the weather-man is calling for a high of 9 degrees tomorrow. So it looks like my skis will have to remain in the closet until global warming ends.

With all the time I've spend not skiing, I've found time to replace the bearings & grease in my bicycle hubs. It is not every year your bike is entitled to a mid-winter tune up.

Perhaps next Christmas I'll ask for a sombrero & beach umbrella.

I found out today that my previous post referres to Uganda's recent revision of their anti-homosexuality bill. The Catholic church is seeking to distance itself from the bill, which contains wild/crazy policies such as life imprisonment or the death sentence.

I also listened in on The Current today, which sought to connect the newly revised bill to American evangelicals. As the program closed, it did not seem like Anna Maria Tremonti was happy the the position either of her guests took.

On funny news briefings

The other day I was driving to work and heard on the BBC world news that the Catholic church was to be taking [quote:] rear-guard actions against homosexual lobbyists. Oops!

I couldn't find this story online; but neither did I search thoroughly.
