Let's Praise Eveanglicals and Nick Kristof

The New York Times columnist Nick Kristof pens a wonderful tribute to evangelicals, especially a Dr. Stephen Foster.

But I must say that a disproportionate share of the aid workers I’ve met in the wildest places over the years, long after anyone sensible had evacuated, have been evangelicals, nuns and priests...The next time you hear someone at a cocktail party mock evangelicals, think of Dr. Foster and those like him. These are folks who don’t so much proclaim the gospel as live it. They deserve better.

(Of course, evangelicals, which include people like Dr. Foster, don't waste their time by showing up for cocktail parties. They're too busy helping others.)

Well, This is Neat

More Guns, Less Crime

But Hayes, who previously opposed the law, also said he noticed suburbanites who now have concealed carry licenses seem to be less fearful of crime and more confident in community safety.

"Law enforcement has two goals: reduce crime and reduce fear of crime," Hayes said. "This seems to have an impact on law-abiding citizens adjusting to their fear level by confidence and knowledge."

Lutger said he liked having a gun on him because police don't always arrive on time.

"It's a great equalizer if you're attacked or if you have a bunch of thugs that rob you or want to kill you," Lutger said. "This is strictly for self protection of myself and my family."

If We Didn't Have Enough Problems....

  Two particularly hungry, exotic termite species apparently have found love halfway around the world and, as with so many other Florida hook-ups, the results are disturbing.

Asian and Formosan subterranean termites are two of the most destructive termite species in the world, responsible for much of the estimated $40 billion in economic losses attributed to termites annually.

(I'm blaming Obama for this too.)
