Conneticut School Shooting

  • I appreciated Russel Moore’s thoughts on the school shootings and the way he links it to the broader war.
  • Apparently the Internet group Anonymous has recently posted the personal information of the members of Westboro Baptist Church.  Anonymous decided to do this when Westboro stated their intention to picket the funerals of the twenty children killed in the shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School  Apparently, the Anonymous group has also been working on hacking their website and has had some success. Here’s another article on this.

Literature

  • Here’s a letter from C.S. Lewis nominating Tolkien for a Nobel Prize. Very neat! One of the most fascinating literary friendships ever!

Foreign Policy

  • In a recent letter to Congress, U.S. President Obama indicated that there have been  694 military personnel in Egypt, a force which has been present there since 1981.  He indicated that they have 760 U.S. military personnel and 5,989 total personnel in Kosovo. He also said in relation to operations against Al Qaeda: “It is not possible to know at this time the precise scope or the duration of the deployments of U.S. Armed Forces necessary to counter this terrorist threat to the United States.”
