Good Wednesday?
Walter C. Kaiser Jr. explains why Good Friday until Easter Sunday really is three days.


Red Envelope Day
Motte Brown writes about Red Envelope Day. “The ultimate goal of this symbolic gesture is to change the president’s heart on abortion. Otto writes, “This is a message to [the president] that God hears the cry of innocent blood.” Time will tell if it has its desired effect on the president. But according to a report from World Net Daily, at least his vision of flooding the White House was realized. “


The Road to Area 51
Here’s an interesting article about Area 51. “Area 51. It’s the most famous military institution in the world that doesn’t officially exist. If it did, it would be found about 100 miles outside Las Vegas in Nevada’s high desert, tucked between an Air Force base and an abandoned nuclear testing ground. Then again, maybe not– the U.S. government refuses to say. You can’t drive anywhere close to it, and until recently, the airspace overhead was restricted–all the way to outer space. Any mention of Area 51 gets redacted from official documents, even those that have been declassified for decades.”


Humanity for Non-Humans
“Yet however we may answer these questions, there is one profound difference from past centuries: animal rights are now firmly on the mainstream ethical agenda.”
