Announcements, Forecasts, and Shout Outs...

A big thank you to everyone who responded to my post exposing Planned Parenthood Golden Gate's "A Superhero for Choice" cartoon. I was on the Lars Larson Show here in Portland on Monday, alerting Jeff Kropf (who was filling in for Lars) and Northwest listeners about the film, and I plan to call in tomorrow and talk to Lars himself. Meanwhile, be sure to alert as many people as possible about Planned Parenthood's advocation of violence against pro-lifers. The national organization still refuses to renounce (or even comment on) its affiliate's film, despite pressure from the American Life League.

A further thank you to Dawn Eden who unexpectedly mentioned Brett and I on her blog 'The Dawn Patrol'. Both Brett and I have been greatly inspired by her work and heartily recommend her blog.

I apologize for the lack of posts over the past several days. For those of you who were not aware, my niece Faith Felicity Harris was born last Monday to my older brother Joel and his wife Kimberly. Diagnosed with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS) prior to birth, Faith was found to possess several additional heart abnormalities, which rendered the planned surgery impossible. Flown down to the Loma Linda University Medical Center in southern California yesterday, Faith will wait for a heart to become available (the average waiting time is 4-6 months). The last several days have been a bustle of activity in order to get everything ready for Joel, Kimmy, and Faith to make the last-minute relocation. Provided a heart does become available, they could be gone for nearly a year. Prayer for Faith would be much appreciated, as 50% of babies die while waiting for a heart. Pray that she would remain strong, healthy, and stable for as long as necessary. For information on where to find updates, photos, etc., please see the comments section for instructions.

Part 1 of 'The Myth of Adolescence' will be posted tomorrow morning, with Part 2 scheduled for Saturday (at the latest). Several interesting topics are coming up after that, including an interactive examination of a tactic frequently used by liberals to great effect, and rarely by conservatives, a short treatise on tolerance, as well as a possible investigation into the paralells between Vietnam and the war in Iraq, particularly among the media and protesters.

Most of you are already keeping track of Brett's recent entries (Part 1, Part 2), but for those of you who are not, or who have failed to take the time to read them, I urge you to do so. The message found in his current series strikes right to the heart of what both our blogs are about.

Thank you all for reading. God bless you!

Soli Deo Gloria, Alex Jordan Harris
