The Anne Rice Chronicles: Part 2

More news on a story we’ve been following with some interest here at Mockingbird: Anne Rice’s very public rejection of Christianity (while maintaining her personal devotion to and belief in Christ).

Obesity and the Bound Will

NEWS FLASH: there’s a really interesting Mockingbird thread going on right now, started by Jeff Dean and Dave Browder, on a proposed tax on sugar sweetened drinks like Coke.

Leave all our hopelessnesses aside (if just for a little while)
Tears stop right here,
I know we’ve all had a bumpy ride (I’m secretly on your side)

PS Props to Daniel Roseberry for sharing this clip with me a little while back.
