Saturday Ramblings, July 19, 2014. World News Edition

Two huge news stories dominated our attention this week, and so we will forgo our usual Ramblings today to give opportunity for the Internet Monk community to discuss these events. Malaysia Flight 17 was cruising at 33,000 feet over Ukraine, more than half a mile higher than Mt. Everest, when a rocket hit it July […]

Saturday Ramblings, July 12, 2014

Fast-food culture wars, Dumb and Dumber sermons, and judges who are okay with incest. Welcome to the weekend, fellow imonkers. The big news in sports yesterday was that LeBron James announced he is returning to Cleveland.  That city has not won a sports championship of any kind in over 50 years.  But with three number one […]

Saturday Ramblings, July 5, 2014, The Tim Howard Edition

Welcome to the Tim Howard edition of the Ramblings, fellow imonkers. Yes, team USA lost to Belgium on Tuesday, but goal-keeper Tim Howard made 16 saves, the most since they began keeping track (in 1966).   20 years ago he would have had a few nice newspaper clippings to but on his bulletin board.  This […]

Saturday Ramblings, June 28, 2014

Welcome to the weekend, fellow imonkers. I’m always surprised by which Rambling items generate the most discussion. Last week it was the Patent Court throwing out the trademark of the Washington Redskins.  Some commentators wondered if Cleveland’s Chief Wahoo was next on the chopping block, and that may indeed be the case.  “It’s been offensive since day […]

Saturday Ramblings, June 21, 2014

Welcome to the weekend, fellow imonkers. First, some sports. The sound you heard Sunday night was the sound of all the land (except South Florida) rejoicing as the Evil Empire was destroyed like an exploding death star. That’s right, the San Antonio Spurs took down the Miami Heat in five games in the NBA finals. […]

Saturday Ramblings – June 14, 2014

Hello friends and happy Saturday. Chaplain Mike here. For once I’ve dragged my lazy butt out of bed on a Saturday morning to be with you all. I’ve enjoyed writing about the Slow Church book this week, but today I’m ready to spread my wings and ramble. Our regular Rambler, the renowned Pastor Dan, is […]

Saturday Ramblings, June 7, 2014

Mormon shoulder wars, Left-Behind trailers, and road trips with a corpse: Welcome to the weekend, fellow imonkers. First, some sports news.  The Evil Empire lost the first game of the NBA finals Thursday night in San Antonio.  The big news of the game was that the AC in the arena went out, and courtside temps […]

Saturday Ramblings, May 31, 2004

Welcome to the weekend, fellow imonkers. If any of you even thinks of mentioning the Pacers-Heat series I will look up your ISP and hunt you down. And do …  really bad things.  As soon as I can think of what they are.  You have been warned. Did you know that 33 cities have implemented […]

Sat. Ramblings Extra: This was not the message of “Good Works Week” here at IM

Saturday Ramblings, May 24, 2014

Football Temples, 4,000 year old dinosaurs, The Church of Beyonce, and the return of the firing squad. Happy weekend, fellow imonkers. Did you know that in the history of the International Religious Freedom Act, there is only one person ever banned from entering the U.S.? His name: Narendra Modi. His occupation: He was just elected prime minister […]
