Nice weekend so far. I chatted with Lino Rulli on Sirius Radio from 4:20 to 4:40, then met my wife, parents, and friends at the drinking club for two tall glasses of Anchor Stream on tap. We ate dinner there, then rented The Illusionist and watched it with the kids. I give it a 7. It was a clever movie, but not clever enough. I don’t think they played fairly, in the sense that they withheld evidence from the viewer to achieve their surprise ending (not like The Sixth Sense, which, I think, put all the clues out there, but still delivered a shocker). All but two minutes are clean enough for the youngest children.
An event billed as “Porn and Pancakes” is being hosted by a church in rural upstate New York. The breakfast discussion on the pornography industry in America is planned next month at the Living Word Assembly of God Church in the town of Ontario, in rural Wayne County about ten miles east of Rochester. . . . Organizers tell Rochester’s WHEC TV that the February 10th event will be an honest discussion about pornography and its impact on society. The discussion will be led by Triple-X Church, a group of youth ministers who travel the country talking about porn and the porn industry.
Actually, Triple-X Church knows the price of porn. I suspect it’ll be a solid breakfast outing.
This week Italian historian Giuseppe Pallanti announced the discovery that the woman depicted in Leonardo Da Vinci’s famous painting Mona Lisa died on July 15, 1542 in a Florence cloister, where she is still likely interred.
Secularist liberals have always done Communism’s bidding. I assume they normally do it unintentionally, but they still do it. Most recently, John Cornwell and his ilk have smeared the modern Vatican, and we’re learning that’s exactly what Moscow wanted.

A former high-ranking officer with the KGB claims that the Kremlin and the Russian intelligence agency in the 1960s were set on executing a smear campaign against the Catholic Church, and the main target was Pope Pius XII.
