SL 733

I’m dusting off the cobwebs of the blog today, on this last week of summer. Steves’s upstairs frying up some grilled cheese and jalapeño sandwiches for the boys. Ian is getting his fix of video games before heading out to a full day of marching band in 94 degree heat. Jonah is finally out of bed and is hopefully making piles of clothes to be packaged up for college.  (I’m going to have to go upstairs to inspect.)

I’ll write a longer blog post later, after I yell at the clothes-piling boy and call the YMCA to set up swim lessons for Ian for the fall.

In the meantime, here are somethings that I’ve been reading or plan to read today:

A New Yorker profile of Glenn Greenwald. Not my favorite dude.

Several good pieces on the latest scandal on the Catholic Church in the New York Times – Douthat, The power struggle in the church, and a good podcast on the topic on the Daily.

America soured on my multi-racial family.
