Friday miscellaneous (5/4)

There were lots of celebrities at the White House Correspondents' Dinner this week. And then there was Bill. He didn’t get any recognition, he was only the “leader of the Joint Special Operations Command that oversaw the raid to kill Osama bin Laden.”

Researchers don’t seem to be able to decide whether the Millennials are another greatest generation or if they are just narcissistic.

Ever wonder which Congressmen resemble which muppets? Here’s your chance.

My wife majored in literature at PHC. I majored in government. We think that’s the perfect combination. And then I found out that Mitt Romney also majored in literature in college. He must be well balanced.

And speaking of literature, here’s why men should read more fiction (but women would probably benefit too). And here is an interview of Russell Moore on why Christians should also read fiction, even dark fiction:

But just as dangerous as darkness-reveling, I think, are novels that are darkness-avoiding. Flannery O’Connor’s writing is quite dark, but it is so because she believes in the Devil, and in the Fall, and in humanity as it is. Novels that avoid the horror of human existence in this time between Eden and New Jerusalem can reinforce a Christian’s tendency to Pelagianism. The Christian gospel isn’t “clean” and “safe” and “family-friendly.” It comes to its narrative climax at a bloody Place of the Skull and in a borrowed grave.

The Vatican just stood up for homeschooling rights at the United Nations (and co-author Jeremiah got quoted in the article).

The MPAA movie rating system can be helpful. But sometimes it just encourages us to be lazy.

Michele Bachmann is now officially supporting Mitt Romney.

Senator Marco Rubio is looking for support for his immigration reform bill.

Representative Paul Ryan has been called a devout follower of Ayn Rand. He says he’d prefer it if people accused him of following Thomas Aquinas.

President Obama’s reelection campaign just announced the Life of Julia. It’s a rather painful look at government dependency.

And finally, I think I'd rather not have this job.
