Children Read To Shelter Cats To Soothe Them

(Photos by Animal Rescue League Of Berks County. You can follow them on Facebook.)

Also good for the kids. They encourage having slow readers read to the family pets. A dog will listen to a kid read a whole book one damn sssyl-la——-ble at a time, and it will never get frustrated, or correct their pronunciation, or start playing Angry Bird because it can’t stand listening to the slowness any more. The dog will look at the kid approvingly, because, human. Human is talking. Human is interacting.

So this is a great win-win.

A sort of strange ad for Apple. But not a bad one. Quite fun. Nice Heisenberg shout-out as well as old logo throw-back at the end. Do I smell a comeback?

As someone who actually has a vinyl sticker on their Mac I absolutely love this commercial. I wish more people would sticker up their Mac so it’s not just a field of grey in the classroom.

"In response to his charitable campaign, Beck’s listeners evidently flooded him with threats made against his life and work… So much for the Christian mission of mercy and tenderness. For Beck’s enraged audience, any act of kindness, no matter how small — the immigrants would have eaten whether or not Beck served the food, and ‘millions of dollars’ were never on offer — was too great a risk."

Immigration, charity, and conservatives’ unholy assault on Glenn Beck

When Glenn Beck announced he would deliver food and toys to immigrant children, the attacks were blistering — and profoundly unchristian. (via theweekmagazine)

I wrote about Beck’s decision to help the immigrant children regardless of their legal status, an even more admirable decision given the grief he must have known he’d get. I did not, however, read until today about the backlash his charitable activities did indeed produce.

It’s sad. I don’t know that it’s shocking—I want to be shocked, but I’m not sure I am. This inability to disconnect a political/legal opinion from very real human needs is troubling to me. It’s a major reason why I’ve long since ceased to allow myself to be grouped under the broad “conservative” label.

When it comes to social welfare broadly speaking, I think admitting that—as things currently stand—there is a real need for these programs is not a strike against the cause of private charity and the free market. Sure, welfare programs are abused (as any government program will be), but there are people who legitimately need outside help to meet their basic needs and those of their children.

To acknowledge these needs is not to say that government should be the entity meeting those needs or that private organizations couldn’t do it way more efficiently, effectively, and morally. It’s just to say that, regardless of political opinions, these needs are real, and it’s good to help people.

To the extent that any political movement cannot make this distinction, I suggest it will tend to be inhumane and unappealing both.
