Times and Seasons got mentioned in the obscure bowels of the Daily Universe back pages today. Yippee! Performance bonuses all around. Next up: a cameo in a cheesy Mormon flick. And, with time and a lot of luck, we now have some hopes that we can achieve the ultimate in Mormon stardom. Ne plus ultra, thy name is the Daily Universe Letters to the Editor section. Read more »

All this buzz over the Blogscars is killing me. Ths suspense, the suspense. Who’ll win what? And now that we’re living the glittering celebrity life here in the Bloggernacle–it’s not everybody who has their own awards ceremony, I mean to say!–will we start referring to ourselvs as Molly (Mormon)wood or Doilywood or what?

Over on the side bar, I’ve linked to an article about Russia’s–indeed, Eastern Europe’s–indeed, all of Europe’s-abysmally low birth rates. This is bad in itself, of course. Read more »

William Morris was born in 1834 in Walthamstow, a quiet village east of London. He and his friends Edward Burnes-Jones and Dante Rossetti, whom he met at Oxford, founded the Pre-Raphaelite movement. Morris was known for his design work, his poetry and fiction, and his Socialism, until dropping out of the public eye in the 1890s. After nearly a century in seclusion, Mr. Morris has again emerged to run a popular Mormon arts and letters blog. Read more »
