May I make a small confession?

Web designer extraordinaire Eston Bond is quite the handsome geek. Moppish hair, serious look, what’s not to love?

Plus, his design work is absolutely beautiful.

Mitt Romney, professional plastics man

Slate puts it nicely:

With its ridiculous premise, creepy intimacy, and hollow candidate, the Romney video ought to be unbearable to watch. But the opposite is true. When the camera’s not on Romney, the video is irresistible. It’s like watching a reality show set in the 1950s—in color. It’s as if Jerry Mathers discovered a lost episode of Leave It to Beaver in which Ward Cleaver asks June, Wally, and the Beave whether he should challenge Vice President Nixon for the Republican nomination.

Individually, the Romney boys are as dull and wrinkle-free as their father. But put all five of them in one living room with their five wives and 10 children, and the Five Brothers’ very sameness is hypnotic. The odds against having five boys in a row are 31 to 1. Five boys even more frighteningly wholesome—and shallow—than their father must be the result of extraterrestrial intervention or human cloning.

Gecko rendering?

Weirdly, my Gecko-based browsers (Camino and Firefox) are rendering this page completely screwed up.  Webkit(safari) seems fine.  Do any other users out there have difficulty seeing this page?

Funnily enough….

I am listed in a directory of “traditional Anglican” blogs. “Traditional Anglicans” are those who don’t like gays, think that we should scrap tradition and reason, and generally think the Episcopal Church is a nest of vipers.

I note there are a couple of other non-traditionalist bloggers in there too.
