Say 'Cheese'!

Darien lost his first tooth last night.

I love you, buddy. You crack me up.

Utah Vote could decide immigration plan's future...

I found this article in today's Houston Chronicle interesting. It seems that a vote in a district that has fewer than 50,000 illegal immigrants and is 12 hours by car from the Mexico border could decide whether Bush's ailing immigration policy limps forward or is declared dead.

This whole immigration hoopla is interesting, but I *really* like the final quote of the article:
"If the truth be known, we should all leave the country and give it back to the Native Americans."

Sometimes, arguing politics is like winning the race at the Special Olympics...geesh.

Veritas et Lux

I have a hard time with sanitized, homogenized 'Christian' music, I'll admit. In fact, the nauseating majority of bubble gum lyrics and predictible pop that the CCM industry churns out is, well...nauseating.

I'll also admit that I am a child of the 80's--punk, new wave, and hair bands. (Admitting it is the first step, eh?)

Nonetheless, one of my all time favorite bands, Disciple, has a new project out that has blown my mind. You should seriously check them out. With tracks like 'Rise Up' (think 'David and Goliath' on steriods) and The Wait Is Over (which you can download free and legally here), these guys will definitely change the way you think about rock music.

I'm officially making a resolution at the SBC next year that we emerging types adopt 'Worth It All' as our theme.
