Tuesday April 17, 2006

Politics: Arizona candidate for governor, Len Munsil (who blogs at lenmunsil.com) points to an article detailing Dick Cheney’s tax situation and says, “If Cheney walked on water, the headline would be ‘Cheney can’t swim.’” Cheney donated almost 80% of his income in 2005.

Bible: ESV Blog points to an article from the Chicago Sun-Times which discusses various Bible translations available to us these days.

Technology: Internet guru Jakob Nielsen, who backs up his beliefs with a really ugly site, has an interesting article showing that web users browse pages in “F” patterns. “In a few seconds, their eyes move at amazing speeds across your website’s words in a pattern that’s very different from what you learned in school.”

Theology: The April 9 Marks newsletter is now available. As always, it has some good articles and a great book review.
