Looking Away From Abortion – Ross Douthat has a good and powerful editorial on the situation surrounding Planned Parenthood.

The Frequency of English Words – Here’s an interesting video that talks about one of my favorite things: words.

Don’t Pray About the Book of Mormon – Mormon missionaries often ask you to take the Book of Mormon and to pray about it. This article explains why you shouldn’t do that.
