Flotsam & Jetsam (2/28)

Oscar Winners 2011 – Well, the winners of the 2011 Academy Awards have been announced. I’m glad Inception (2010) was among the winners, but I still can’t believe that True Grit (2010) was passed over. Such a shame.

More Awards – In the spirit of the Academy Awards, hop over to Man Against World to see which film won “Best Gif”.

Normalization of an Abomination [Caution: Mature] – Dr. Albert Mohler warns Christians to prepare for the normalization of gay marriage. “”I think it’s clear that something like same-sex marriage is going to become normalized, legalized and recognized in the culture. It’s time for Christians to start thinking about how we’re going to deal with that.” (HT Gene Vieth)

Hummingbird Drone – This one’s for the technology geeks.

How To Raise Boys That Read (As Much As Girls Do) – Sad, sad, sad.

“A good book should leave you… slightly exhausted at the end.
You live several lives while reading it.”  ~ William Styron
