If they were her ‘own’ biological children, he would have no problem, she said. But because they were adopted, he saw too much risk.

The Psychology of Social Networking – “Neal Postman warned that we were Amusing Ourselves to Death. Maybe today the fear is that we publicize ourselves to death. That’s the concern represented on this infographic.”

The David Barton Controversy – Marvin Olasky provides an update on the David Barton controversy.
