A Random Assortment

~ A fascinating, nostalgic look at a mental institution in Wichita Falls. Much of the push in recent decades is toward deinstitutionalization, but this piece explores its potential downsides and the problems with states cutting funding for mental institutions.

~ Have I told you that I'm obsessed with Moby? (I caught part of this old interview with Moby on World Cafe [our independent radio station in Philly, which, incidentally, I'm also obsessed with].) He mentioned inspirations like Flannery O'Connor, Nick Drack, and Joy Division. On twitter, he said he feels like he's Walker Percy's best friend.

~ An excellent call to pray for Christian unity.
