If you’re a Christian somewhat new to blogging and you want to try and broaden your audience, you could feed them cookies, or you could go read LaShawn Barber’s post here.

So much is happening in the blogosphere, I can’t keep up. New blogs are created every day and veteran bloggers are writing about interesting topics. I have time to keep up with only a few Christian and political blogs, and that’s not even the tip of the iceberg.

Collected Quotes

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
C. S. Lewis

Collected Quotes

What a chimera, then, is man! what a novelty, what a monster, what a chaos, what a subject of contradiction, what a prodigy! A judge of all things, feeble worm of the earth, depositary of the truth, cloaca of uncertainty and error, the glory and the shame of the universe!
– Pensées, Blaise Pascal

Here at the Common Room we could certainly be considered Quite Conservative, but this doesn’t stop us from watching Dan Rather on occasion. I wish our opponents would grant us the same favor.
