This headline must be buried in there somewhere! by Google Images w/caption by Rev Dan

A blogger is deluged with hundreds of headlines a day. RSS feeds rule his life - they help form his opinions and his daily psyche. To some, their home page is like keeping the pulse of some wild, uncontrollable beast. To others, it's more like a worn-out machine, running in stops and starts, hiccuping along the day.

Pick and choose. Pick and choose.

Like some bizarre smorgasbord, the headlines for news and opinions tempt ... and repel, but we have to deal with them, ingest them and make sense out of the worlds of religion, politics and LGBT rights.

Pity the poor blogger who tries to focus on EVERYTHING. He would get lost within an hour.

Never to return.
