Oh, Happy Day!

Harvard's new president is a Bryn Mawr Alumn.

Is there anything women can not do?

And, my favorite quote of the week, from another rockin' woman, Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori "Life is too short to get too flustered."

I just wish I could remember that more frequently!

Breaking News - redeemed

Diana Butler Bass has a wonderful essay on Anna Nicole Smith and our commitment to see the face of Jesus in everyone, per our Baptismal Covenant.

Thanks to Rick Lord at World of Your Making!

Breaking News

First, I am on the "new" blogger - courtesy of my gmail. How fancy-schmancy.

But my inspiration for changing over was due to other "breaking news" and a gripe I have had for a few weeks now.
Is the death of Anna Nicole Smith BREAKING NEWS?!

This is not the first time has headlined a minor incident. And even NPR got into the act yesterday when they (albeit briefly) noted the psychotic break of Lisa Nowak. Good grief, the poor woman was clearly out of her senses, is that worthy of the national news?

I now take on, as my duty, pointing out when we are being unduly assaulted by BREAKING NEWS.

Now back to the happy-happy joy-joy of google-driven blogging.
