Here is this week’s list of poems, blog posts, interactive spreadsheets and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.

I, Being a Woman and Distressed. I’ve never read any of Edna St. Vincent’s work before. This is quite the poem.

If Only! A thought-provoking post about people who interfere in the affairs of others because: “If you would only see/do things my way, all of your troubles will be solved!”

Budget Puzzle: You Fix the Budget. What programs would you cut to balance the U.S. budget in the short and long-term? I’m grateful that I don’t have to make these decisions in real life!

Core Value – Faith. Come check out this discussion I joined about faith. One can have faith in God, of course, but that isn’t the beginning or the end of it.

Rolling on the River. This is one history lesson that is anything but boring. If only stories like this could be included in high school history lessons. ;)

What have you been reading?

    i really liked doing the budget exercise … it’s always easy for one person to be a dictator than to work with hundreds of Type A lawyers/politically motivated people in making even 1 decision … :)

    LOVED the budget exercise! i went by 2 principles:

    1. eliminate the breaks for those who are already very wealthy
    2. take our military presence out of other countries without cutting our current levels of military size and security

    and it worked.

    :D

      That is actually the strategy I used as well. It’s amazing how well it works, eh?
