This Woman Writes
On one of the Christian Google communities I follow, a perfidiouslittle troll regularlypostsphotos of starving children,highlighting his point with accompanying commentarylike, "Where is the good and gracious God?"

Twins Rubes: A Local Angle on the Minnesota Twins
Last night in Kansas City, Twins fans came 2 outs away from seeing something we haven't seen once this year from the starting rotation: a complete game shutout. In fact we haven't even witnessed a complete game yet, much less a shutout from a starter.
