A La Carte (5/31)

On Friday night my son had a baseball game; we went to watch and it was cold enough out there that we broke out our winter coats. Today, factoring in the humidity, we are expecting to break 100 degrees. Canada is truly odd that way.

Wilson on Productivity - These are some good thoughts on productivity. 

Commuting and Divorce - Granting that there is a bit of an agenda behind this article, the facts are interesting enough: with a commute comes an increased likelihood of divorce. 

Fair - Ed Welch says “fair” is a 4-letter word. “It’s a child’s first sentence, perhaps a senior’s last, and it makes many appearances in between. So who would have thought that fair is a dirty word? It should never be spoken within the boundaries of the Kingdom of Heaven; it is never spoken there. You have to leave the throne room before it can be muttered.”

Technology as an Alternative to Love - This is probably worth thinking about.

Coming Home - A photo gallery from LIFE of soldiers returning from war.

Last Goodbye - In honor of Memorial Day, Christian Rapper Tedashii released this track/video from his new album (which releases today, as it happens).
