Friday December 9, 2005

Narnia: Rotten Tomatoes is collecting reviews of The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe. Reviews are a bit mixed. I’ll be catching the earliest show available this morning (11:45).

Du Jour: Tim Irvin reflects on this world not being his home. “There’s nothing like living in the cab of a big truck for five weeks to give you a new perspective on things.”

Police then came and searched the home, confiscating Christian literature and other Christian materials.” (HT: The High Places)

Humor: I don’t know who won the Harvard-Yale game on November 20, 2004, but Yale scored big!
