Props to the League of Reformed Bloggers aggregator which has raised our standing in the Blogosphere to something akin to middle of the food chain. We have, apparently, surpassed Jonathan Moorehead, but have not yet beaten out the Daily B!--h.

The funny thing, for me, about this promotion is that in college one of my classic off-the-cuff dismissals of a fellow human being was to say, "I wouldn't give you ten cents for that mango-eating marsupial." I suppose I owe that person an apology now. That's one of the down sides of being a Christian: you never run out of people to whom you ought to say you're sorry.
