You know it's the first official day of summer when the news slows down, but there's still some news in today's Roundup you'll want to see.


  1. The TGIF picture is appropriate .. this has been a rather weak week (weak – weak week?) … not much to say. Maybe the problem is that if you look ONLY for controversy (especially controversy that feeds specific groups) then you will not always find it. It would be better to look at WHAT’s HAPPENING. But then you have seek it (at least a little). There was terrific RNS in Norman OK and Moore OK but you had to be there. There is on-going RNS in hospitals, hospice, schools, homeless tent cities, urban streets .. but you have to go there (it is not front page or about popes or gays or abortion). It’s more often about food and hope and spirit and LOVE (but those are not interesting to your readers … right?)

  2. Old Dude, Honestly, I like seeing the things you mentioned much more than the controversy you mention. Makes me a whole lot less angry and gives me some hope for the Christian faith and religion in general. But, in today’s world, the controversy will come in it’s own sweet time. The later, the better, I say.
