Music: Switchfoot is offering a new, unreleased song for download on their site. They are currently in the studio working on a new album which is scheduled for release this fall. And there was great rejoicing.

Weird: On June 1st, 2006, Secret Service agents showed up at the office of Great News Network in Dallas, Texas and demanded their entire stock of $1 million dollar gospel tracts that are produced by Ray Comfort’s ministry, Living Waters.

Terrorism: This weekend the Royal Canadian Mounted Police arrested 17 muslim men who were planning to carry out a terror attack here in Canada. Dr. Haykin has some good thoughts and a link to a news report. “we must never forget that among the people for whom our Lord Jesus died are those who today call upon Allah. And there is coming a great day when they will cast this idol to the winds, the bats and the moles, and be converted and worship the Lord Christ.”

    Let’s Hear It For the Second Parents
