Peter Piper's Picks - Nov 1 - All Saints' Day

Well, although I'm taking a blogging-semi-break, I can't pass up passing along some good reading. So, for this week atleast, Peter Piper's Picks is up and running....

Wendell Berry has long been on my list of "must-read" and yet, I've only read about him, not his actual words. As I've suspected, he's got a lot to offer our culture in our current situation.

I've been thinking recently about the value of human life in this culture. John Piper hit it on the head when he commented on the value of an unborn human's life being worth atleast as much as a dog's life - and yet our culture doesn't see that. HT: HalfPint House.

The always insightful Headmistress reminds us that our quest for good government is nothing new, but it would be nice if we all had this for our common goal. Perhaps we do have the same goal, just not the same way of getting there. Since it is such a short quote, I'll post it here, but please don't let this keep you from checking out this awesome blog!

"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance."Marcus Tullius Cicero - 55 BC

Do go spend some time in The Common Room, you won't be disappointed.

Crazy is good.
