Getting a face lift

Shewww! This holiday season has been busy as all get out! I haven't blogged in a minute. Been way too busy...plus extremely uninspired to write anything (of course I do owe somebodies that modernity and race piece...still tackling that). I have been reading alot on race...from both a historical and philosophical perspective. There are some great reads out there.

I have decided to go to Wordpress. I am still working on setting that up. Here's the rough draft version. I am still trying to figure out how to bring archives over to this site. Not even sure if I can even do that. Does anyone know?

Here's what I got so far.

Happy Holidays!!!

Beginning January 1 there should more activity on the blog.

Thinking about Tookie


Many thoughts. Very few words. I have been thinking about Stan "Tookie" Williams alot lately. Actually I am a little depressed about the whole deal. I found this quote from one of my favorite theologians, D. Stephen Long in his book The Goodness of God. I thought it somehow applicable to this situation.

Christianity was born out of the imprisonment and execution of an innocent person. Given our history, we cannot seek the solution to crime in a punitive prison industry. Although Christians and other innocent persons have often been labeled as criminals, this does not imply that all criminals are unjustly persecuted. Some people do evil things that require the kind of correction imprisonment could potentially bring. Imprisonment should not be a time of punitive retribution but an opportunity for people to face the reality of the evil they have committed in hope that they might yet repent and turn toward the good. p. 299

Did Stan turn toward the good? I hope so. Whatever good that he did do I hope that it finds it way towards the hood in the midst of nihilism and violence. I hope the good that Stan may have done be not swallowed up by the revenge of the State. Much more to think about.
