I Spy Godspy

Don't check in too much with Godspy, but when I do it's always a couple hours of solid reading -- of either content found on the site itself, or from Godspy's compendium of links.

Today is a meaty news link kind of day featuring: an article in the journal First Things on Bush's indifference to the pro-life movement; a review by Robert Pinsky of Joan Didion's Year of Magical Thinking, an account of the death of Didion's husband and her daughter's terminal illness, (with an excerpt); and an article on how the so-called "emergent" church is looking to "dead Christians" as examples of how to be close to Jesus,which is what Catholics have been doing with the saints for centuries, but I won't tell if you don't.
