new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

the heart -- and hypocrisy -- of the abortion matter

from msnbc:

'in a breathtakingly tight argument, chris matthews corners rhode island bishop thomas tobin, who has banned rep. patrick kennedy, d-r.i., from receiving holy communion due to his views on abortion.

because here's the moral hypocrisy at the heart of the church's abortion position: if it's really and truly murder, you're talking about prosecuting mothers, sisters, lovers and friends for having them. tweety is quite aggressive with the bishop, demanding to know exactly what legal penalties he thinks should be legislated.'

this provoked an instant flashback to this video from 2007, where anti-abortion demonstrators were asked what the punishment should be for women who got abortions if abortion became illegal:
