What the Pope can teach us all about simple human dignity. | February 28, 2005
All right, I think it's safe to say that I'm not the biggest fan of the Catholic church, nor are they of me. I am an atheist, after all, and was a Southern Baptist before that, plus am bisexual, plus...

Introducing [metafeed]. | February 23, 2005
Okay, I admit it! I've become so intrigued by XML recently, and all the power it can add to automated journaling services, that I just went ahead and signed up for a free new blog this week instead of waiting...
