Dual Congratulations

Two sets of congratulations are in order as winter descends on Michigan today.

1) Congrats to Glenn Beck on his new $24-50 million radio contract. I consider it one of life’s cruel ironies that when the day finally came when Glenn could actually afford drugs, he wasn’t using them anymore.

2) Congrats to our pal Christine, whose blog, Talkwisdom, has been nominated for a 2007 Weblog Award in the “Best religious blog” category. Vote for her here. Remember that you can vote again every 24 hours — it’s like the Internet version of Cook County, Illinois.
