This Day.

...Jesus again cried aloud and breathed his last. At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, rocks split, and graves opened; many of God's saints were raised from sleep...

...And when the centurion and his men who were keeping watch over Jesus saw the earthquake and all that was happening, they were filled with awe and said "This must have been a son of God"...

Matthew, Ch27 V50-52,54

Speaking the bitter truth.

A blogger's rant about the Terri Schiavo tragedy, not for those with delicate dispostions. No doubt PETA will complain.
Terrible news from Minnesota.

Yesterday, a teenager entered a Minnesota high school and killed eight people, after killing his police officer grandfather and stealing his guns. The first victim was a security guard, who, according to NPR, was unarmed. How on earth was the guard suppose to protect the school from such a threat? What were they thinking?

The Husband.

A piece from NR a few years ago with some background on the Terri Schiavo tragedy begs the question - who really represents Terri's interests? Some astounding accusations, that, if true, would shame anyone siding with Terri's "husband". Meanwhile, Mickey Kaus weighs in and also recalls NPR's "evenhanded" treatment of this story.

Perhaps the most repugnant comment I've heard on this came from the none other than Ms. Maureen Dowd, who snickered on Imus this morning that Tom Delay and Bill Frist were acting out a sequel to "Weekend at Bernie's" - with Terry Schiavo as "Bernie". I glad that Ms. Dowd discovered the humor in this tragedy, high atop the Upper West Manhattan skyline, where the people below are just so many ants to burn with her magnifying glass.
