Here are the things I wrote about the past week. Although this was written on Sunday afternoon, I've set the timestamp to Sunday morning so it shows up at the very beginning of the week in the archives.
Appeasement still doesn't work -- My thoughts on why Spain's attempts to give in to the terrorists didn't stop them from trying to attack.
Republicans and Judicial Activism -- Why the Republicans, though they aren't perfect in this respect, are still the most likely to oppose judicial activism.
The Fighting in Iraq -- The flare up in Iraq is no reason to panic. It won't be easy, but I don't think it will last too long either.
Kerry's Catholicism -- Kerry's response to those who criticize him for following politics rather than his faith doesn't impress me, or too many other people, for that matter.
Creative writing and the alarmist school -- School administrators really shouldn't be surprised when students in creative writing classes write graphic and shocking short stories. It's what young writers do, after all.
Heliocentrism and the Church -- In response to John Zimmer from Letters from Babylon, I talk a bit about Galileo's treatment by the Catholic church, and how the history differs from the myth.
Good Friday -- "What's so good about Good Friday?" That was actually the title of the sermon at the Good Friday service I went to last week, but it's also the topic of my post.
