What I saw today

- Bryan Cones at US Catholic has a post on his beekeeping - The secret death of bees. I've always been attracted to the idea of beekeeping but have never tried it.

- I came across a 2004 article by Elena Curti (of The Tablet) about her husband becoming obsessed by child pornography. It was disturbing and this bit especially bothered me ... Christianity offers an explanation ... all human beings are, to a greater or lesser extent, drawn towards evil, and once we succumb it is hard to break free. .... Is that what Christianity teaches, that we are all drawn to evil, that given an opportunity we will all do evil? I don't believe that.

- Cardinal Sean O'Malley is refusing to attend Boston College's commencement because Enda Kenny, the taoseaich of Ireland, is speaking. According to O'Malley, "Mr. Kenny is aggressively promoting abortion legislation" and is proposing legislation that "represents a dramatic and morally unacceptable change to Irish law". Both of these assertions are false. Rad more about all this - Irish abortion bill does not change law, says Enda Kenny.

- Getting more and more depressed lately, so I was interested to see this post with neat drawings (and 5000 comments!) about being depressed - Depression Part Two. Worth a read.

You know it's odd. My daughter showed me Depression Part ll just yesterday. It really got to me. I think it's something she's been trying to express for years.

Hi Richard,

Maybe she and I saw it mentioned in the same place? Sorry to hear she's depressed. It is hard to explain what it feels like to others.
