A La Carte (2/16)

The Penny Paradox - This article takes something worth just 2.4 cents to illustrate the problems with cutting a nation’s budget in any substantial way. Consider this yet another good reason not to be the one in power (and to pray for the one who is).

That Lovely, Lovely Man - I love articles like this one. “I would like to let you know about a lady who belongs to the church which I serve. She can barely leave her home at present because of her physical condition, itself substantially the result of a botched operation several years ago. She has been close to death on several occasions, and is currently in hospital.” Keep reading it…

What Publishers Can Learn from Airlines - I enjoyed this tongue-in-cheek look at what publishers can learn from airlines. It seems that both industries are grappling for new models.

Miracles in the Bible and Today - Craig Keener has an article at Huffington Post that deals with modern-day miracles. His argument is interesting, but I’m guessing it probably isn’t the strongest case he makes in his recent book (which deals with this very topic).

Dawkins Is Lost for Words - I thoroughly enjoyed this little comeuppance that must have been a golden moment of radio.

The Real Rock Band - This is kind of fun. Sony has put together a soundscape meant to give you a sense of what it’s like to run onto the stage with a rock band. You pretty much need headphones to enjoy it.
