(no subject)

Hmm. First comes a list at work that shows most folks there are doing work that is inherently non-governmental. Now we've got faith-based prisons in Florida.

I suppose if we shift the definitions around so that people running prisons aren't doing inherently governmental work then it doesn't violate the separation of church and state.

Still something about the entire business makes me uneasy.

Knittingneedle the Accursed

Is it:

  1. the "pet name" of Udred the third, king of Merino (who had notoriously bad luck)

  2. the title of the latest in the Ms. Appleby murder-mystery series, after the Haunted Tea Tray and the Murrwich Mangle

  3. the subject line of a spam email message

  4. another hapless character belonging to Mike the gamer (from Something Positive)

later today

I may try to see Cold Mountain after familial festivities wind down today. Meridian 16, probably one of the later showings (i.e. after 6ish). Or - heh, the Varsity is showing The Nightmare Before Christmas at 9:45 p.m. Hmm. I can see that any time, tho.
