Interesting Video

I'm in favor of school choice and opposed to unions. This video is a good demonstration of why.

David Foster Wallace

I'm currently reading Infinite Jest, which isn't an easy read, but it's an interesting one. Wallace was an interesting dude - here's a post about him on the www.godspy.com website, which includes a clip of him on the Charlie Rose show.

They played this song by Chopin at the CL retreat this past weekend and I really enjoyed it. We also watched portions of the film The Art of Chopin. He was intriguing character and it's worth reading about him. His life was one of longing and I identified with his disillusionment with the bourgeois lifestyle.

Madonna House

Met someone who lives in the Madonna House in Roanoke, VA, when I attended the CL retreat this past weekend. I'm going to try to visit their house in Raleigh next week when I'm in the area. I also ordered a book on their founder, Catherine Doherty, as she sounds like a fascinating person.
