My Slow Takes (Vol. 112)

1.  Tuck at Denbigh Church of Church states, “We want to be loyal to God, we want to love other people, and we want have a witness to the world. Sometimes it very difficult to do all these things at the same time.” He questions that if something is sinful do we require a law because we interpret it as illegal? Please take the time to read his article.

2. The Richmond Spiders started the season with a win. It was somewhat one sided, 34-0. Their next opponent is N.C. State, Saturday the seventh.  

3. Notre Dame’s win over Temple was a little closer, 28-6. The next game, against Michigan will be a good workout for the Irish Lads.

4. The Washington Post has some interesting statistics about the race for Governor in Virginia.

“A Quinnipiac University survey released recently made clear both candidates’ challenges. The poll found that 34 percent of likely voters viewed McAuliffe favorably, 33 percent unfavorably and 31 percent didn’t know enough about him to have an opinion. Cuccinelli’s appeal was dimmer: His rating was 35 percent favorable and 41 percent unfavorable, with 22 percent unsure.”
I am still seeing ads that have Cuccunelli and McAuliffe berating each other.  I am in the 33 and 22 percentile of the survey being unsure about both of them. Perhaps I should consider Robert Sarvis, a Libertarian. Just a thought.
5. Donald Featherstone died Tuesday. (1918-2013) Wikipedia has details on Donald’s contribution to historical wargaming.

6. 3 D Street Art, Rennes, France.

7. A unique bathroom accessory.
