"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

Something's Happening Here...

Just to say...

I am in a "voting location" (at 7:45) this morning, and there is already a line downstairs, of people waiting to vote. There was a line there Tuesday, when I was last here; but I didn't realize why until later. And there were reports Tuesday morning, trickling upstairs to us, that there were long lines downstairs.

This in a building where I have trouble getting students to show up for an 8:00 a.m. class.

And by the way: yes, there are voter registration problems here; but it's not from ACORN.
