Lent is coming, and the Anglican Church in North America has launched an internet resource, https://t.co/OmP9j3Flfl, to support the Church in the Lenten disciplines of prayer and almsgiving.

Fellow Orthodox Christians: We all dread all the beans we have to eat during Lent. I made a crazy delicious pot of cannellini beans using loads of Bavarian seasoning mix from @TheSpiceHouse. You gotta try it! https://t.co/C128fdV1lP— Rod Dreher (@roddreher) March 1, 2018
Does anybody want to buy a computer collection I have been gathering since 1993? This is less than half of it. I am considering a move, and I'm not sure these can go with me to the new place. Would love to keep them all together somehow. Want to start a museum? pic.twitter.com/lG7b3PuDUg— Benj Edwards (@benjedwards) February 26, 2018
Tucker hosted a college kid who tried to press charges against fellow students who handed him a box of crackers and photoshopped him as a cracker. Tucker called him brave. pic.twitter.com/obj4Mwysv6— Ryan J. Reilly (@ryanjreilly) March 1, 2018
Maddow still appropriating Glenn Beck's act https://t.co/fIiNqNjWYE— Mark Ames (@MarkAmesExiled) February 21, 2018
Rachel Maddow got emotional as she said that the indictments of 13 Russians are proof that finally, someone is defending us from the Russian threat to the United States. https://t.co/F6aINirMGt #maddow #Russians pic.twitter.com/1EEpXI5Ajc— Sarah Reese Jones (@PoliticusSarah) February 17, 2018
Rachel should listen to Yo-Yo.
And this guy.

This may be the pluperfect Dreher post, @edroso -- quotes Wendell Berry, pimps homeschooling, has reader-comment edit on transgenderism, blames large schools, etc. All suffused w/ fear. Missing? A pic of him feeding his face. So maybe just a contender.https://t.co/EVvXykU83M— Nancy Nall Derringer (@nnall) February 22, 2018
My prejudice: I went to a *huge* high school, where one could take four years of Russian, a million different lit classes, etc. So my enthusiasm for the kountry klassrooms of Fritters is perhaps not quite at his level.— Nancy Nall Derringer (@nnall) February 22, 2018
Excellent point. And you could have little schools because no one was expected to know much more than readin’, writin’ and cipherin’. The reader comment he added is particularly dickish, btw.— Nancy Nall Derringer (@nnall) February 22, 2018
Edroso is the master of Rod-haters, especially here.
4 March update: I found this.
Look at it this way: It's a break from the endless, multi-thousand-word posts about people with the wrong takeaway about the Benedict Option.— Nancy Nall Derringer (@nnall) December 13, 2017
I was in 10th grade when I learned that communication is a loop, and if someone misunderstands what you said/wrote, you should consider that maybe you weren't clear. Rod...takes a different approach.— Nancy Nall Derringer (@nnall) December 13, 2017
I think it's worse. He's constantly calling for people to withdraw from modern life (schools, telecommunications, culture), then saying "of course BO is not about withdrawing from modern life, didn't you see in chapter 1 where I said it wasn't?"— Roy Edroso (@edroso) December 13, 2017
"Form close communities of like-minded Christians! Care for one another's children! Homeschool together! I'll be inside reading, blogging and otherwise ignoring you."— Nancy Nall Derringer (@nnall) December 13, 2017
6 March update: What exactly is she accusing him of? A kind of sock-puppeting?
Why do all of Dreher's "reader letters" read like they were written by the same person? The voice, word choice, hand-wringing attitude, all of it. I'm not the world's most experienced editor, but I know writing styles are highly individual. These aren't. https://t.co/kaiP3QpBib— Nancy Nall Derringer (@nnall) March 6, 2018

ICYMI on the Mueller indictment: "At the heart of the Russian fraud is an essential, embarrassing insight into American life: large numbers of Americans are ill-equipped to assess the credibility of the things they read." (by me) https://t.co/bpUWVqZoPl— Evan Osnos (@eosnos) February 17, 2018
(The New Yorker, "Reading the Mueller Indictment: A Russian-American Fraud" by Evan Osnos, February 16, 2018.)
Yes they are.
I had classes in media literacy in high school. Alas, now here we are. https://t.co/YtYBRNHokT— Nancy Nall Derringer (@nnall) February 19, 2018

Maybe they are, but so is the chattering class.
This statement is also true when applied to well educated coastal liberals. Their uncritical, almost faith based acceptance of the Russiagate narrative has revealed them to be just as suggestible and easily duped as the red state rubes they disdain. https://t.co/PcUWfd3MCw— Max Blumenthal (@MaxBlumenthal) February 18, 2018
Maybe the dupes aren't regular people after all.
One facet of elite political culture that Russiagate lays bare is the contempt our top minds have for average voters. Here is 1 of multiple suggestions that Russian ads/bots changed minds/outcome. Look up the total for Russian FB Nov election ads in MI & WI - it’s less than $1k. https://t.co/mM7Z6P95oh— Aaron Maté (@aaronjmate) February 19, 2018

We've heard many times about Soviet troops raping German women. Not so much about American, British and French troops doing the same thing. Looks like an interesting book. High time something like this was written.https://t.co/a2m9BAq1gA— Margaret Kimberley (@freedomrideblog) February 7, 2018
