Fabled Cassandra joins Yelp

I present the exclusively one star Yelp reviewer.  The reviews are amusing to read in that kind of slow-motion train wreck format.  Best line: "I pray the members question these acts [instrumental services] before they have to give their account to God."

In her defense, I've also seen exclusively 5 star reviewers but, unlike them, I really want to see more failures detailed by this author .

Before someone asks: yes, Yelp reviewing churches is weird and could be a post all on it's own.

Political overcorrection

An interesting analysis of the current extremely bizarre election coverage: the media desperately wants to be seen as objective but at the expense of simple fact-checking.

Equally illuminating is a Guardian article suggesting a possible interpretation of the current landscape was very welcome, seeing it as a larger GOP over-response to Obama.

(Note that this post was formerly two separate posts.)
