Just Plain Foolish

Just a chance for an old-fashioned, simple storyteller to say what needs to be said.

Wow.

Folks, head on over to Peterson Toscano's blog for his entry on Ted Haggard's recent public shame. All I can say is that this was a truly compassionate and moving bit of writing. As my entry below says, I've been struggling today with snideness and divisiveness within myself, and this spoke to me. Please check it out.

Thanks for posting the link to Peterson's wonderful note. I'm catching up on blogging, back to running after stories as a journalist, short deadlines, and lots of time pounding pavement.

I rather feel I have been neglecting online fFriends a bit...

But, holding thee and all in the light

Thank you so much for sharing this link. I feel grateful that you have found the piece helpful. I found it difficult to write, but healing all the same.

Lorcan, good luck with the reporting. I have a lot of sympathy for folks on short deadlines. (I'm an editor, and sometimes it feels as though I've barely got time to look over the jobs.)

Peterson, thank you again for posting this. My current snarkiness is largely to do with my disappointment regarding a "defense of marriage" amendment that passed in Virginia in an incredibly divisive way - the more urban parts of the state resoundingly defeated it while the poorer rural counties overwhelmingly voted for it. I think a post is slowly arising from it, but will let it season a bit longer.

And I was really glad to share this link with everybody.
