I’m leading another History of Christianity class tonight, and the topic is Creeds & Doctrines. That should be non-controversial.
Anyway, here are some remainders of the news/views day:
* WaPo’s Sari Horwitz summarizes what we know about the three new suspects arrested in Boston for aiding Dzhokhar Tsarnaev after the Boston bombings.
* Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott offer Mark Sanford long-distance endorsements; Nikki Haley actually attending fundraiser.
* Matt Lewis answers question no one was asking: why he could never, ever be a liberal.
* At Ten Miles Square, Jonathan Bernstein notes that Bill Clinton recovered pretty fast from his own moment of “helplessness.”
* At College Guide, Daniel Luzer reports on Cooper Union’s abandonment of its ancient “no-tuition” policy.
And in non-political news:
* Yikes: skeleton provides strong evidence of cannibalism in Jamestown Colony.
To close out May Day, here’s a tune for workers just trying to get through another day: Pylon performing “Working Is No Problem (Just As Long As I Keep My Mind In a Factory),” in Athens, GA in 2008. It celebrates the small rebellions: “I’ll go to work tomorrow morning; I’ll be clean but not neat.” Ah, I love Pylon.
