People think they can't make a difference, but this group of nuns is single-handedly taking on the big financial corporations in an effort to get them to see what they do in a more moral light. They play the God card, as it were, and good for them. Maybe these folks need to feel the fear of God. Nothing else seems to work.
Speaking of work, I would like to reiterate my feeling that people spend too much time on their yards. The couple across the street spent all weekend raking leaves and clearing their yard of debris, but guess what? A little wind this morning and all the leaves are back. Seriously. Wouldn't you rather sit on the porch and read a good book? Too many Americans neglect their inner lives.
My inner life this weekend, when I wasn't sleeping through a sore throat, was focused on a couple of articles about Steve Jobs that I've finally gotten around to reading (Time and Rolling Stone) and now it's on to my new New Yorker. There's an interesting article on the history of Planned Parenthood awaiting me (Sanger, et al). And after that (and a couple of hours of napping so I can get back to work tomorrow), it'll be the first Walendar series from PBS (can't wait), so I will leave it here.
