Here are this weeks picks.
Cavs Out-- A great season by LJ and the other CAVS this season. They stunk up the joint today though, so, Good luck to the Pistons. Thanks to Yahoo Sports for the link article.
Chicago White Sox and Chicago Cubs Brawl--Here is a link to "The Next Frontier" website and they have the You Tube video extraction. Always good when mayhem erupts, keeps the world in balance.
Secular Influences = Low Birth Rate = Pope Sees a Problem-- Thanks to Yahoo News for this fascinating article. The Pope (Here is one of Pope Benedict's messages provided by www.vatican.va) is holding secularism, aka "social ills and moral ambiguities", to blame for Canada's low birthrate. However, gay marriage is still frowned upon, unless you are in Spain, Thanks BBC. To learn more about secularism you can check out The Secular Web.
Big Ray is the Mayor of The Chocolate City..Again--Thanks to The Scotsman for this article. Remember, there is always an opportunity to Make A Difference if you give to hurricane relief.
Unity Government--Iraq is looking to approve the plan for a unity style organization that balances the three religious/philosophical factions of the country. The initial link is from Fox News and here is another article taken from a Qatar website Gulf Times. You can also see more perspectives on the issue here: on Counter Punch--a political newsletter.

Cavs finally win.--Here is a link to the Cleveland Cavaliers Home Page. They put together a nice win on Sat. May 13th, after two losses in Detroit earlier this week.
Happy Mothers Day--Cleveland Browns cornerback Daylon McCuthcheon graduates from college, fufilling a promise to his mother. Good Job.
(Fond memories today for my mother Rebecca, who passed away in December 1999.)
Sam Harris- An atheist's view of the current events of religion. Belief.net provided the interview with one of today's most provacative belief leaders.
Kenneth Phifer Sermon--Ken is the consulting minister for the Maumee Valley Unitarian Universalist Congregation. Here is one of his sermons about what God is and how we can tackle discussions about God in modern day America.

The Online Progresive Caucus--Sign up now. Progressives, Moderates, rational people, and people looking for a change. Join the discussion and help move the country forward!
A letter from the president of Iran-- Thank you to Information Clearing House for the link to the full text of the letter. I am sure the "liberal media" won't talk to much about it, but it is good to look at all sides of the issue. Even from our administration, thanks to Fox News!
See you next Sunday! Any feedback or comments are welcomed.

My highlights of the week for my three favorite topics.
Steven Colbert at the Washington Press Dinner. Actually, I have a link to Google Video Beta of his portion. It was a brave and challenging task to undertake. Definitely worth a view.
Ohio Governor Race Tightens up-- Ted Strickland crushed out a victory on the Democratic ticket and Blackwell won a tight contest in the Republican family values fest. This is going to be a fun race to listen to. If you have an opinion on either of the canidates or the race in general, put it here. Here are their websites:
Religion--Does Hell Exist?
Here is a good debate on beliefnet.com about a few different viewpoints of Hell in afterlife. There is a Hell, Yes link and a Hell, No link so be sure to check out both.
The Cavaliers Win 1st Playoff Series in 13 Years!--The Cavs won the series off an open jump shot by amon ones (No D- No J), who dumped his year long shooting slump, for 14 clutch seconds (his only ones of the game) in game six.
Disk Golf is Fun--There is only one place to play in Toledo but the surrounding area is pretty involved as well. Here is a link from a website that promotes Greater Ohio Events and Activities. If you have never played, don't worrry just look up some of the basics, pick up a disk and get outside.
I will be in next weekend for more Politics, Religion and Sports, feel free to respond to my links, or publish your own.
