Flotsam & Jetsam (4/26)

A.W. Pink on Private Judgment – That’s two Pink quotes I’ve shared this week. Yeah. I’m what you’d call a fan.

Aurora Dark Knight Shooting: the Men Protected the Women – Read this: “Throwing your body in front of your girlfriend when people all around you are getting shot is an instinct that’s basic, and deeper. It’s the same reason these Batman and Spider-Man franchises endure: Because whatever else is fading away, women still seem to want their superhero, and men still seem to want to be him.” [HT Becky]

High Anxiety – Uh-oh. Big uh-oh.

You Cannot Improve on God’s Design for the Family – Glenn Stanton observes, “Both the books of divine and natural revelation teach us about parentage. We who live in the 21st century must not arrogantly assume we can change or improve upon what God lovingly and wisely instituted…”

Suffer Well – Michael Wright shares a thought-provoking excerpt from Joe Thorn’s excellent book, Note to Self.

Book Review: The Road – Josh shares his thoughts on Cormac McCarthy’s brilliant post-apocalyptic novel. And here’s the thing: I’ve recommended the book to three people now, and each one of them has enjoyed it. So why not pick it up yourself? You won’t regret it.

Not Baby Talk – Good words from Frank Turk. Looking forward to the follow-up posts.

Hey Boston: Leave Chick-Fil-A Alone – I’ll second that. Kudos to Dan Cathy and Co. for standing firm in their convictions; as another blogger said, this makes me hungry for chicken.

“I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book! When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.” ~ Jane Austen

    1. Seriously? What peabrain decided a reboot was necessary? :) Nolan has only just finished his trilogy, for crying out loud!

      *sigh* In case you can’t tell, I think the idea of a reboot is rather stupid… :)
