I love writing, though often this entails telling self-hatred to go away, leave me alone, I'm busy.

You can judge whether a person is to be trusted in matters of reform by seeing how they react when someone they admired is accused. If one goes from "tar and feather em all" to "omg witch hunt" - nope, nope, nope.

This is everything the Church should be, esp in a post-Christian country: To Protect Migrants From Police, a Dutch Church Service Never Ends

One thing I loved about your book and other great works of memoir is how they also help you ask the right questions and dig in the right directions when writing fiction.

Though the flip side of "get a thicker skin" is that we get tougher, meaner, and less willing to take your bullshit so I think the ones who say "get a thicker skin" REALLY will not like it when it happens.

"Politicians are often corrupt and inept, so we'll anoint a multiple-bankrupt reality show business guy who can't spell because he'll clean things up."

"The media is sometimes biased and imprecise, so I'll just follow this tinfoil hat guy with a radio show, who spits when he talks, for a calm and objective perspective on the unvarnished truth."

"Got to save those souls!" is an attitude that has done more damage in the world than any amount of base hedonism. Insert various CS Lewis quotations here.

The War of Don Emanuel's Nether Parts, Señor Viva and the Coca Lord, and The Troublesome Offspring of Cardinal Guzman. Worth owning for the titles alone.

If you have not read Louis de Bernieres' South American trilogy yet, you should, for many reasons, not least of which is the part where Aquinas returns to witness the havoc wrought by his fanboiz and gives em what for.

I'm a SAHM who also works two jobs from home while homeschooling, and it was definitely a lot more relaxing when I worked twelve hour days on a ranch.

Actually in many cultures aristocratic women had servants do all that...while the lower classes barely had leisure for their own domesticity.

Aren't these the same people who usually defend SAHMs? Or have we reached a new level of gross where they think wives really are meant just to be fruitful vines in the recesses of the home?

And you know how great most of these troll dudes look, anyway...I mean, if looks mattered, they'd be in deep doodoo.
