"...the Pope...of the allegedly irrational Church, is the only public figure speaking out clearly about the role of reason in life."

So here I am again in Nevada in that pub in that casino. Today, I even hiked a number of blocks through cold rain to get here just so I could write a blog post. I have no idea what I'm going to write, but this is just another way your Sci Fi Catholic is out to serve you.

I have little to say partly because everything is in transition. I am planning an essay on Harry Potter, but am unsure if I'll have it ready before or after the new volume comes out. I'm going to review The Restorer, but I've not yet finished it. And sooner or later, someday, I'll write about The Hero with a Thousand Faces and Glasshouse.

For today, I intend to alter the sidebar yet again so there will be a list of most important posts, but I haven't gotten to it yet and am unsure if I'll get to it tonight before I run out of battery power.

For today, I suggest hopping over to John C. Wright's Journal where the esteemed and very funny sf author has an interesting post on Hirsi Ali, an atheist woman, formerly Muslim, who has spoken out against many msogynist tendencies in Islam. Wright uses this to segue into a criticism of modern liberalism, which has, as many have observed, strayed from its ideals. The rousing debate in the comments section after the post is intriguing, and I take the the title of this post from one of Wright's comments in it. I don't agree with Wright's view of Harlequins, but it's still a good post.
