    Thanks for the kind words, folks. After seven years at RNS, I’m leaving to co-edit CNN’s Belief Blog. Thanks as well for reading the roundup; it’s been a labor of love.

    • Best wishes. I will, however, miss reading your excellent stories on RNS. I’ll have to check out the CNN blog. Good luck!.

  4. Fellow posters –

    We seem to have a new, rather churlish and power hungry, moderator on this blog. His name is Daniel Burke, a new CNN employee, and he is abusing the power of his position by deleting posts, not because they are offensive or frivolous, but simply because he, personally, does not enjoy the ideas expressed in the posts. This is abuse of power and I believe we should all protest by emailing our objections to CNN. Join me if you will.

  5. Sorry, Mr. Burke is not a moderator on this blog, he is a new moderator on CNN’s belief blog.
