- Stop killing meat and start growing it: Slate writer William Saletan deals with carnivore guilt by offering the following suggestion: "We can't change our craving for meat, but we can change the way we satisfy it. How? By growing meat in labs, the way we grow tissue from stem cells. That's the great thing about cells: They're programmed to multiply. You just have to figure out what chemical and structural environment they need to do their thing."
- Tennessee Death-Row inmate is eager to die: I've been busy fathering and am way behind on this story. Stephen Hugueley killed his mother then, while in prison, killed a prison staff person to assure a death sentence for himself. Hugueley is vocal that he has no remorse for these crimes and that he wants to waive his remaining appeals and be put to death. While I feel strongly that the state should not kill anyone and that no person is beyond God's grace, I don't exactly feel compelled to write letters pleading for this guy's life.
- Cole Wakefield contributes to "Corrupt Generation": Cole is the first outside contributor to my "God blog," Save Yourselves From This Corrupt Generation. Hopefully more will follow. Cole reveals his true feelings for the Baby-Boomer generation and the impact they've had on the United States.
- I'm glad someone was able to use the name "Homeskillet Records": Back in the nineties, my band, Drywall, and two other Indianapolis-based rock groups, The Lids and Siphon, begat the loosely organized Homeskillet Records label. Homeskillet put its name on two full-length albums, two EPs, one three-EP compilation, and a handful of demos and promoted several shows, but never became a "real" record label. A slightly more real label named Homeskillet Records, which seems to be based in Alaska, is currently promoting nine acts. Good luck, Homeskillet, and thanks for keeping the name alive.
