Links, Format, and Errata.
Over to your left yonder, you'll notice a slight change to the links format. Tell me if you like it or not.
Also, I've added links.
I'd especially like to recommend MaryH's Ever New and Disturber of the Peace. Along with Shawn McElhinney, SAM, Lane Core, Mark Shea, and Greg Krehbiel, Mary and John are fellow alums of the old-format Catholic Convert Message Board (may it rest in peace).
You'll find Mary's place to be a refreshing, contemplative and charitable exploration of Catholic spirituality at its finest. When you're tired of the bar stool-swinging/blast furnace approach here, go there ASAP.
DPI is a more Menckenesque place--especially appropriate given that John is a Mencken afficianado. Interestingly, John was a Presbyterian when he first came to the old CCMB, and is actually a participant in a pivotal scene in Rome Sweet Home. As Dave Barry says, I am not making this up. Go there for a regular witty clubbing of idiot pinatas on a wide range of issues.
Finally, sometime Tuesday night I passed 20,000 visits since May 18, 2003. I'm speechless (please avoid placement of Hallelujah!-style comments in the box, thank you...).
