Pretty, Pretty Good

The New Yorker simply cannot -- ahem -- curb its enthusiasm for Larry David. Two articles in just two weeks analyze a social issue or celebrity through the lens of the Seinfeld creator. One deals with schizophrenic patients who watched and responded to comedy clips, and the other is a profile of Steve Coogan, which begins with a lengthy description of a scene the British comedian just shot for this season of Curb.

In next week's issue, an analysis of Jeff Garlin's fluctuating weight and how it relates to the Bush administration's plans to invade Iran.

God Times Never Felt So God

Here's proof that either God does not exist, or that he's a Red Sox fan:

There's only one baseball team with a full-time chaplain on the payroll. Only one whose team executives are known to hold prayer conferences over the phone. This season they even had a "Faith Day" for fans, featuring Christian bands and players professing their love of the Lord. They're your Colorado Rockies: National League pennant winners, and World champs when it comes to mixing baseball and God.

Blatant Plug

OurWeddingPlus.com has a nice little write-up of The Engaged Groom. Check it out. It's amazing to me that the book is still going strong--stronger than ever, in fact--two months after our third wedding anniversary.
