Gladiator’s Graveyard Discovered: Archeologists have identified a graveyard for Roman gladiators. This is the first such graveyard to be discovered, and reveals much about the lives and deaths of the gladiators. It was found in Ephesus, in modern-day Turkey, which I will be visiting in a couple of months. I will not, however, be wearing my gladiator costume. But I will be on the lookout for Russell Crowe. (HT: The always helpful Smart Christian.)

The Internet Radio Network: Can’t get to an AM radio for your daily dose of Hugh Hewitt, Tammy Bruce, or Dennis Prager, then listen online.

“Vacationing Pastor Lets PowerPoint Lead Service”: Too much Christian seriousness got you down? Then visit Lark News. Where else can you find such stories as: “Nursery Catacombs Idea Flops”?

Proud Papa

Okay, you’ll have to permit me a moment of unapologetic boasting. Last week my daughter won third place in the Orange County Science Fair, Behavioral Science Junior Division. This means she gets to go to the California State Fair later this month. Her project looked at whether people learn better by reading with their eyes or hearing with their ears or both.

Guess which student is my daughter. Not hard, is it? If you’re inclined to think of Orange County as a lily-white enclave, this photo tells another story. My daughter’s class at school, in fact her whole school, reflects a similar mix of people.

    Congrats, Rev. Roberts, on your daughter’s achievement. That’s quite an accomplishment!

    Kids are a great joy, even if they sometimes bring great pain.


Thanks for your willingness to make a comment. Note: I do not moderate comments before they are posted, though they are automatically screened for profanities, spam, etc., and sometimes the screening program holds comments for moderation even though they're not offensive. I encourage open dialogue and serious disagreement, and am always willing to learn from my mistakes. I will not delete comments unless they are extraordinarily rude or irrelevant to the topic at hand. You do need to login in order to make a comment, because this cuts down on spam. You are free to use a nickname if you wish. Finally, I will eventually read all comments, but I don't have the time to respond to them on a consistent basis because I've got a few other demands on my time, like my "day job," my family, sleep, etc.
