"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

"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

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

Best Commentary on the Election Yesterday

And as I said yesterday:  Democracy is about losing.

To all of you who sympathize with my politics, I can only say:  Welcome to Texas.  And you have no idea how sorry I am to say that.

Does that mean Whattaburger will expand to my northern state? Is that our consolation prize for enduring the grief of the next twenty years? / gallows humor

It's not just Texas, and it's not just the South. I feel as if my country died yesterday.

I fear rather than our country dying, it only showed it's true underbelly. There is a bit of hope as my little county in TX, Fort Bend, actually turned blue yesterday!! Still it feels like a death not only for us but for the world.

Dems won in Harris County, too, where I expected them to lose.
Finally, I voted for a winner in Texas!
