"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"...doesn't philosophy amount to the sum of all thinkable and unthinkable errors, ceaselessly repeated?"--Jean-Luc Marion

“The opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice."--Bryan Stevenson

Who Knew Reality Wouldn't Follow A Script?

This is interesting. The NBC Nightly News blog, with Brian Williams more or less leading the way.

On top at the moment: a report on a DOD/DHS exercise that was, to say the least, "unrealistic."

Reality, as we have seen in Louisiana, Mississippi, and now Texas, is so predictable as to be, apparently, unpredictable.

Gonna have to go read that "after-action" report. After the "real" action, of course.

Does anyone else feel safer, yet?
