  • Maybe it’s time to forgive Michael Vick

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    I’ve been stingy in offering forgiveness to Michael Vick. I was skeptical when the former Atlanta Falcons star said he’d found Jesus. And the dog lover in me just hasn’t wanted to appreciate the possibility that prison really did set Vick straight. In the above video, Vick does some... read on

  • Another Festivus miracle!

    Pretty funny story from the OC Register about an Orange County prison inmate, Malcolm Alarmo King, who got a better diet than the other inmates by claiming he practiced the religion of “Festivism.”

    King’s quest for a healthier eating option while behind bars ended with a county... read on

  • Catholic Church says 1859 Virgin Mary visit authentic

    From the Los Angeles Times:

    Amid a patchwork of Wisconsin farmland half an hour’s drive northeast of Green Bay is a modest shrine with a brick chapel, a school and a flow of pilgrims speaking of profound healing power.

    The power is said to come from the Virgin Mary, who appeared to... read on

  • Quite the work Christmas video

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    December 16, 2010 | 10:29 pm

    Not a bad business Christmas video from the Zimmerman Agency, a planning, advertising, digital marketing, social marketing and PR firm. All done in one shot. Not really sure what clients would be interested in watching a five-minute Christmas video, but there are ugly sweaters and some male employees pay homage to Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg.

  • Obama’s Christian faith back in foreground

    December 16, 2010 | 8:09 pm

    I know I’ve been a little MIA the past few days, but now I’m just one very long seminar paper (on how and why Congress should save the news gatherers) away from being half way done with law school. That loud exhale you just heard? It was me, though, to be sure, the life of a student... read on

  • Hefner, his bunnies and the basement of LA’s First Congregational

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    Kevin Roderick at LAObserved has an interesting post about Hugh Hefner, who made an appearance tonight in the basement of the First Congregational Church on Commonwealth in LA. Pretty sure that’s a historical building, though it’s hard to imagine it’s as old as ol’ Hugh.

    And, no, he... read on

  • Douthat: The culture wars they are a-changin

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    December 13, 2010 | 1:30 pm

    Ross Douthat, whose NYT mug reminds me a bit of DiCaprio’s in “Inception,” wrote in his weekly column that the United State’s cultural chasm is fading:

    This week, the National Marriage Project is releasing a study charting the decline of the two-parent family among what it calls the... read on
