This week's Catholic Carnival XXXVI and the Christian Carnival for this week have both been available for reading pleasure for several days now; especially follow the links on the Christian Carnival contribution by Ales Rarus about cussing. I haven't finished them all yet, but what I have read of both of the Carnivals today has been great.
The blogosphere doesn't stop for conventions --- even church music conventions --- or for funerals. Still going through the hundreds of backed-up emails. New posts soon.
