"Beauty confronts us with the requirement that we place ourselves among...the redeemers, the leaders in the protection of life. Once you have seen the bush on fire, you are not going to get out of the assignment unless you close your eyes to the beauty.... [You] either have to close your eyes or go back to Egypt and set the people free." - Rev. Dr. Rebecca Parker, "Rising to the Challenge of Our Times"

something different

The parents of a friend in Sacramento found and rescued this albino fawn in Oregon, mistaking it at first for a stray baby goat. According to the email forwarded to us, baby is doing fine as far as they know (though isn't staying at the rescuers' house any more).

In other news, it seems that some wacky liberal activist judges in D.C. decided that the Bush EPA can't gut the Clean Air Act without help from Congress. After all that work this administration has done to educate people on the harmlessness of air pollution, this must feel like quite a discouraging setback. It's just not fair and reasonable to expect industries to update and improve their technology in ways that help non-stockholders. What, is government like "for the people" or something?

So where is the beautiful little animal now? If you are wondering who this is, look at the posting name and you will know. I finally decided I had to get one so I can make comments on all the blogs I read.
