Interesting Anglican Happenings

Dave Walker, the UK blogger of Cartoon Blog fame, has an interesting piece on his Church Times blog entitled Anglican churches embrace Florida 'revival'. Dave has lots of good links and when I have time to read them all, I might post more on this subject.

[Added on 30 June 08: see the comments for links to a couple of more blogs that deal with these interesting happenings. Note: none of this as far as I can tell has any connection to GAFCON.]

Yahoo News Photo Goof

I was looking at Yahoo News Photos earlier (this page to be exact) and noticed below the photo (of an offshore oil well) it said that the photo I was looking at was also a part of a collection of photos related to Sen. John McCain and right next to the link was a thumbnail photo that the "alt" tag said was of John McCain. It was very obvious who was really in the photo . . . well see for yourself:

screenshot of Yahoo News photo of Obama labeled McCain

The screenshot was created using IE7.0 and PrintScreen (I pasted the PrintScreen into MS Paint, saved as a .jpg and then opened in PhotoFiltre so that I could add the blue circle and the red question mark), but I almost always use Firefox (which I used for this post).

It's a Nominee!!!

I just checked CNN looking for results from South Dakota (still counting) and Montana (still voting) and found that according to CNN, the junior Senator from the great state of Illinois has 2,119 Delegates. One more than needed! [The official Obama campaign site still says 8 to go, but I'm not going to argue with CNN!]

And now we can focus on defeating the GOP! It has been five long months since Iowa, but Primary Season in over! On to 4 November (five months and one day to go) and victory!

Eight Months, Two Weeks, Two Days, Sixteen Hours, and Fifteen Minutes and a sitting U. S. Senator will become President for the first time since 1960. And there is a good chance that history will be made! President Obama just has a nice ring to it.

See Senator Obama's Tuesday night speech (25m:38s)
Name That Tune:  I think I know who that is singing (as voice over) at the end, but I'm not sure. If you know who it is, leave the artist name and song title in the comments please.
