Syria, Panda-cam, and Solvang

- More about Syria from the Episcopal Cafe ...

Jonathan Merritt, on RNS, offers thoughts from three different Christian leaders

In the National Catholic Reporter, Thomas Reese collects what moral theologians say about getting involved in Syria.

Meanwhile, the United States Conference of Bishops has sent an Action Alert to urge Congress to "choose dialogue and diplomacy" in Syria.

- Also from the Episcopal Cafe, links (see in comments too) to the Smithsonian's Panda-cam of Mei Xiang and her baby :) Here's a video of the bit with the baby - who knew they were so tiny?

- Watching a video today about Solvang, a Danish themed town in Southern California. I'd heard of it before (doesn't Dean Koonrz's novel Watchers partly take place there?) but I've never been ...

- Oh, and added on: thinking of this song today from Joan Baez about her sister (thanks to William) ...
