Jesus Christ it got dark out.

Like almost enough to make me feel worried. (Though by the time I hit Post it was normal bright grey again.)


The prospect of mainlining the entire volume of "The Complete Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm, as translated by Jack Zipes" with fox1013? I'm not sure my joy can be textually rendered.


Yolanda King died yesterday as well, I learned this morning. (And thistlerose tells me she was a Smithie, class of 1976.) Pastor Tiffany ended her blogpost on the subject as follows:
King's life stands as a witness to the world of Christian love in spite of the hateful rhetoric we see so often publicized in the media. Just this year at the MLK commemoration, King said this, "We must keep reaching across the table and, in the tradition of Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King, feed each other."

I'd like to imagine King now, sitting with her father and mother, reaching across that heavenly table and offering Falwell a taste of grace.
Edit: polymexina linked to this about King.
