Another Week Ends: Go Cubs Go!, Cormac McCarthy, Dead Mothers, Email Tics, Teen Depression, and the Church of McDonalds

All the best wishes for those mockingbirds at the Liberate Conference in Fort Lauderdale this weekend, including our very own David Zahl. 1. Along with the rest of the blogosphere this week, we wish David Foster Wallace a happy 50th birthday. There’s too many blessings to recount, but the web has exploded with numerous avenues […]

Post-Apocalypto: The Last Man on Earth... on Screen

We are living in ominous times. Or so Hollywood tells us. It’s true though – impending doom has become a fixture in our political and cultural discourse as of late. The natural disasters of the past few years probably have something to do with it, as does the economic downturn, or you could just chalk […]
