Delayed Eudemon: Charter internet went down again.
Congratulations to the Colts. Dungy gave a nice tribute when asked about the “social significance” of the victory. “I’m proud to be the first African-American coach to win this. But again, more than anything, Lovie Smith and I are not only African-American but also Christian coaches, showing you can do it the Lord’s way. We’re more proud of that.” Very nice.
I didn’t think the commercials were very good last night, but if you want to see them again, they’re all gathered here.
The 2007 Catholic Blog Awards are now accepting nominations. I’ve never gotten nominated for anything. Maybe if they had a category, “Best Blog by a Religious Beer Drinker.”
Four-DVD set of animated Soviet anti-America/capitalism just released. Humorous yet interesting stuff. $89.00. From the LA Times:
“Black and White,” produced in 1933, depicted a highway with an endless row of blacks lynched on telephone poles. “The Millionaire,” made in 1963, told the story of a rich American woman who leaves $1 million to her pet bulldog, who becomes so wealthy and powerful that he eventually is elected to Congress. And in the 1979 animated short “Shooting Range,” a jobless American youth finds work in a carnival shooting gallery only to discover the evil, greedy owner is now charging double — for people to use the youth as target practice. . . .
The anthology is divided into categories titled “American Imperialists,” “Fascist Barbarians,” “Capitalist Sharks” and “Onward to the Shining Future: Communism.”

Residents of a remote Chinese village are hoping that DNA tests will prove one of history’s most unlikely legends — that they are descended from Roman legionaries lost in antiquity.
Scientists have taken blood samples from 93 people living in and around Liqian, a settlement in north-western China on the fringes of the Gobi desert, more than 200 miles from the nearest city.
They are seeking an explanation for the unusual number of local people with western characteristics — green eyes, big noses, and even blonde hair — mixed with traditional Chinese features.
