Phil "I-know-hockey" Ryken's prediction about the Flyers' chances last night.
Roughly one year ago three Christians were violently murdered in Malatya, Turkey. Have things gotten any better for Christians since then? Forum 18, a Norwegian group that tracks religious freedom, has just released a thoughtful account of what the Turkish church is up against. You can read it here.

That was the fate of bird after bird fleeing from my deadly aim.
Actually, the "bird" is a little clay frisbee shot from a trap shooter. Marlin Buckley took me out to his club yesterday (Delaware Co. Field & Stream Assoc.) to give me a hand at trap shooting. It took a few birds flying to safety before I started to get the hang of it. Even graduated to shooting two at a time. I just hope I can control my reflexes if someone tosses a frisbee near me.
