From National Catholic Register

"I loved Star Trek as a kid, but even though Kirk was the main character, he wasn’t my favorite. As a quiet, bookish boy who stood somewhat apart from my peers at school, I identified with Mr. Spock, the defining role of Leonard Nimoy, who died last Friday and was buried yesterday in a traditional Jewish ceremony."

From The New York Times

"Our schools do amazing things with our children. And they are, in a way, teaching moral standards when they ask students to treat one another humanely and to do their schoolwork with academic integrity.

From The Anchoress

"Increasingly — particularly as I contemplate the actions of the Islamic State — I am conscious that we Christians are all in this together. We may be turning toward Jesus from different directions, but we are all being drawn toward the One who is All-in-All, and he can certainly handle and house us until we can figure out how to be less fractious and finally stand together."

"I asked him why he said that. He said, 'I don’t know, but lots of kids at school say it.' I responded, 'Don’t say that. Pronounce the name of your country correctly. Tell your friends I said that. Tell them your dad said that America may be the greatest nation that has ever existed.'"

From The Guardian

"For eight hours a day, Tim Verdugo doesn’t feel like he’s in prison. The 37-year-old felon leaves a housing unit at a minimum-security prison in Carson City, Nevada, and steps on to a ranch where he’s addressed as 'horse trainer' instead of 'inmate.'"
