Carival of Homeschool #4

The 4th Carnival of homeschooling is up at the Common Room. What amazes me about this one is how many new blogs there are, like there is a whole other wing of publishers that I didn't know about. x-posted at Biblical Parenting

American Library Association Create Ugly Button

The ALA has created a button they sell on their own site that proclaims "Radical Militant Librarian." Sound like a Nazi thing to me. Perhaps it's just Communist, in which case we can all settle down and relax. Not only that, it's ugly. They are trying to claim the Bush administration is Hitler-like, yet here they are the ones making "Militant" noise. Odd. Very odd. I am aware that the phrase came from someone in the FBI who used it in a derogatory way. Still I wouldn't design an ugly button because of that.

Seen at Librarian.net.

Southern Baptists Advertise the Good they Do

It's about time! Dallas Morning News has a story about the SBC being FOR something instead of just AGAINST stuff.
Some critics say, though, that the ad amounts to putting a spotlight on a sideshow – highlighting activities that are genuine but not the denomination's main work.
I totally disagree. For the majority of Southern Baptists, helping people is what we are about. The Culture Wars, however, make more noise than does feeding the hungry. Our church is still sending people to help out with the hurricane messes. And we are a small congregation of less than 300. We have another chainsaw team going to Texas in February. Things must have been bad, this will be the 4th chainsaw team to go.
