Week in Review: June 30-July 7

By: 8 July 2013 No Comment

Week in ReviewThe theme for the past week was “quality over quantity,” it seems. Actually, the theme was “a holiday in the middle of the week leads to laziness and distraction,” but that’s another story.

Regardless, we did post up some articles worth mentioning and this roundup is the chance for our dedicated tens of readers to catch up on what they might have missed over the past few days. Yes, we’ve got everything from posts commemorating the Fourth of July to a good, old fashioned rant about why lobbyists are doing far more damage than the much-maligned Martha Shoffner ever could.

As always, we encourage people to keep up with our daily updates so no one will have to deal with the shame of missing anything. Click here for our RSS feed, here for our Facebook page, here for our Facebook page, here for our Twitter account or here to subscribe to updates through email.

Here are the links for your clicking pleasure:

* Wikipedia Brown: The Case of the Tenacious Trojan (Part 1 of 3) — yes, the Internet savvy detective started a new adventure. You wouldn’t want to miss out on that, would you?

* Awesome Site of the Week: Jony Ives Redesigns things — there’s a whole site dedicated to poking fun at Jony Ives in particular and iOS 7 in general.

* Martha Shoffner is the least of our problems — the alleged criminal activities of our former state treasurer are getting a lot of attention these days, but she’s a mere piker compared to the fiends that hide behind the First Amendment and engage in far more damaging behavior.

* Fortnight for Freedom — Catholics across the nation spent two weeks praying for the preservation of religious freedom. Find out what prompted the Fortnight for Freedom and why people should care about it.

* Fourth of July OTR: Life with Luigi — Independence Day and old time radio go together like peanut butter and jelly, folks.

* Weekend OTR: Cisco Kid — even more old time radio. Bonus!

* Being good, doing good — some words of wisdom from pastor Steve Ellison.

* Lum and Abner comic strip — what’s going on this week down in Pine Ridge?
