"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

Houston, we have a numbering problem....

Yes, Houston is going to be home to the first Chinese Super Bowl.

Super Bowl LI.

I, for one, welcome our Chinese football overlords.  It is, after all, a logical consequence of pulling out of the TPP, and leaving China alone to determine trade in Asia.

Or it's a consequence of sticking with an outdated numbering system long after its utility has run over modern American usage.

You can just complain about football if you like.  Me, I find the distinction between Super Bowl L that wasn't, and Super Bowl LI that will be, fascinating.  I'm funny that way.....

Hey, I did a lot more than complain about it.
