After writing a very personal piece in October for “Christianity Today,” about coming to faith in Christ seven years ago, Fox News contributor Kirsten Powers told Howie Kurtz on Sunday’s “Media Buzz” on Fox that her left-wing friends were “shocked” to learn she was a devout evangelical Christian.
Deep and sincere thanks to Kevin Hurd, Sarah Stokes, Chris Herzog and the entire WEAU-TV13 News staff for the outstanding piece they aired during their 10pm news Nov. 14th on Teamwork Africa, “Out to Africa from Eau Claire.”
Talk show host and syndicated columnist Dennis Prager, heard weekdays in the Noon hour on WOGO-AM680 and WOGO.com, is a terrific writer who offers a column today that painfully tells it like it is, “The President Who has Done the Most Damage.” It’s a must-read.
Doctors at the University of Mississippi dissected two chicken nuggets, looked at them under a microscope and were “astounded,” as James Hamblen notes in The Atlantic.
They say “We’ve taken a very healthy product—lean, white meat—and processed it, goo-ed it up with fat, sugar, and salt [in the breading].”
Their conclusion: “Chicken nuggets are mostly fat, and their name is a misnomer. That is, “because the predominant components aren’t chicken.” At least, not in the sense that chicken implies meat (not fat and skin).
How about a taco instead?
I believe in the power of a hug, but this just seems absurd to me. What do you think?
All week long I’ve been looking forward to joining Caleb Svendsen and Austin Taylor on WOGO-AM 680 and WOGO.com in the call of tonight’s high school football game at Carson Park between Chippewa Falls and Eau Claire North. The Cards must win to keep their playoff hopes alive.
Meanwhile, tomorrow at 2:30pm at Camp Randall and on ABC-TV, the Badgers host Northwestern in a HUGE Big Ten tilt. And Sunday in Baltimore, the Packers, without Clay Matthews, need to knock off the defending Super Bowl Champion Ravens to go to 3 and 2 and keep pace with Chicago and Detroit.
I like Vic Ketchman’s list of “10 Things the Packers have to do to Beat the Ravens,” better than Tony Holm’s prediction the Pack will lose 30-24.
Leaders offer solutions. Wisconsin Congressman and House Budget Chair, Paul Ryan, in today’s Wall St. Journal is offering a way out of this current budget stalemate. Read what he proposes and see if you don’t find it much more reasonable than anything you’ve heard come from the President or Democrats.
In the Halvorsen house we’re seriously exploring homeschooling one of our kids this fall. We’ve always said we’ll evaluate the kids individually and make the best education choice for each child year by year. For one of our daughters homeschooling seems to be the way to go. As we look to go in this direction, I’m finding the advice offered by Mary Pride, author of “Mary Pride’s Complete Guide to Getting Started in Homeschooling,” to be very helpful. If you’re thinking of getting started in homeschooling, see if you don’t find her top ten list for beginners helpful.
Today on my talk shows on WWIB and WOGO I said “it’s time for a new conversation to be initiated by the church toward the LGBT community.” On WOGO, we heard at length from Andrew Marin, author of “Love in an Orientation.” Having lived for ten and a half years in Chicago’s gay Boystown community, Marin is the leading the way on modeling what it looks like for the church to reach out with agape love to the LGBT community.
Similarly, you may be surprised–as I was–to read about the friendship that has developed between Chick-fil-a President and COO, Dan Cathy, and a LGBT leader. People like Cathy are getting it, and in the process showing the rest of us what it means to build bridges of acceptance and friendship even with those with whom you may have strong differences of opinion.
Last Friday night ABC’s “Nightline” did a segment on XXXChurch.com Pastor and founer, Craig Gross, and his friendship and working relationship with adult film star, Ron Jeremy. On Friday’s FP I featured this report, plus the story of a young woman named, Brittni, who has left the adult film industry and gone from porn to Jesus.
