Big surprise there.

You scored as Roman Catholic. You are Roman Catholic. Church tradition and ecclesial authority are hugely important, and the most important part of worship for you is mass. As the Mother of God, Mary is important in your theology, and as the communion of saints includes the living and the dead, you can also ask the saints to intercede for you.

More stuff for the reading list

As I said in my comment to revolutionaryjo's ravings about Brokeback Mountain, I don't have much interest in the movie - like, none - but the name of the original story's author struck a chord in my memory and so I went Googling after her.

Sure enough, I'd seen the name before. Annie Proulx turns out to be a fascinating person, and this interview really fired my interest in her books, especially after her laudatory comments on Wisconsin Death Trip, which seems to echo in many ways Proulx' take on the backwaters of America and Canada. Her comments on the differing experiences of immigrants to America and Canada (and the latter's worsening separatism problems) resonate strongly with similar comments in Born Fighting, which I've just finished rereading. So I think I may get my library card out of hock this week and drag Accordion Crimes or The Shipping News off to Washington.They look like they right be worth a read, unlike most mainstream (i.e. non-SF) fiction.

Yeah, they're about 30 years late on this

Redstate.org notes that after the Soriano trade, the Nationals will have nine players on the roster next year qualified at second base. This will solve a long-standing problem...of the Washington Senators, who left town for Texas in 1972.

The link from that post led me to Capitol Punishment, which I expect to be reading quite a bit next summer.

'Tis the season...

This is mainly aimed at friends and family (especially family) who may intend to inflict presents on me this year, and are wondering what to get me.

No coffee cups. None. I have all I can use and then some.
Not even this one or this one.

I'm serious here, people. It's all I can do to control the vast herds of ceramic drinking gear I already have.
