Criticism/Bad things deserving reprobation  - 
 
I've figured out my Lenten sacrifice for next year -- I'm going to eat some "frozen dairy dessert" from +Breyers US every day. Should be very penitential.

David Pomerantz On March 13, in Dallas, TX, an organization you’ve probably never heard of is going to revolutionize the pro-life movement. It starts with a kid from Philly, a bus in New York, and an idea that brought him quite by accident to the city where Roe v. Wade started — the city where [...]

A Virginia church says it has received hundreds of calls from people around the world offering to adopt an unborn child with Down Syndrome who would have otherwise been aborted.

Hah! Although there are a handful of exceptions out there, this is pretty spot on:

The oft-quoted statistic that "98 percent of Catholic women use birth control" is problematic for many reasons. For starters, the study that this statistic was pulled from was restricted to:

(A) women who had sex in the three months prior to the survey

(B) women at risk for unintended pregnancy, defined as those who had sex in the three months prior to the survey and were not pregnant, postpartum or trying to get pregnant

Story
Tagline
A geek is a guy who has everything going for him, but he's just too young. A nerd will be a nerd all his life.
Introduction
I'm a resourceful computer geek who fancies himself a musician. Generally speaking, I'm relatively skilled in many areas without having a strong focus in any particular one, which is turning out to be an advantage.

Definitely my favorite Thai place in Fairfax. Delicious food. Polite and attentive staff (a couple of whom are the owners). And really family friendly -- they always dote over our kids when we visit.

This is my family's go-to place for Sunday brunch, and we like that it's a local business. Service is a little slow when they're busy, but that's understandable (because it's a small place) and forgivable (because the food is always really good). Bonus points -- they stock Boylan Soda in the drink coolers!

Indulgently delicious cakes. "Heaven" is my wife's favorite (white chocolate cake with raspberry filling and white chocolate cream cheese icing). You definitely have to plan ahead, as the cakes are made-to-order. Don't just pop in, hoping that they'll have something ready to take with you (although you may get lucky, and a couple/few individual slices are often available).

Clean and quiet hotel. Easy access from 81. The suites are one large room; prefer the living and sleeping areas to be separated by a door. Indoor pool is clean; it's listed as heated, but we found it to be on the cooler side. Fresh cookies available in the evening at front desk. Free breakfast buffet has many options, but quality is average. Expensive compared to similar hotels ($212.44 in July 2015).

I've only visited this store for two reasons -- dropping off Amazon returns, and getting documents notarized -- but have had great experiences doing both. Granted, it's pretty hard to mess up accepting something that's been pre-packaged and pre-addressed, but the staff have always been friendly and prompt. And the fact that they have a notary public available pretty much any time of day (it seems that way, at least) is wonderful -- they've saved me considerable hassle on more than one occasion.

Perfect little hole-in-the-wall Greek restaurant. Consistently good gyros, and family friendly. Bonus: outside seating when the weather's nice.
