The Leftovers: Putting Abortion in the Bible, Arlen Specter: Stand Up Comic, and Who Was Hitler Before Hitler?

Everyone knows that leftovers are better than the original meal. Here are the news stories that didn't fit in anywhere else this week:
  • It's pretty much taken as a given that abortion must be the number one political issue for religious people in America.  But that wasn't always the case.  And that wasn't always the case because until about 30 years ago translations of the Bible didn't call abortion murder.  The Religious Right had to add that in.  Here's a fascinating article on how it happened.
  • I don't know what else to say about "A Quantum Theory of Mitt Romney" other than if you find the idea of comparing Romney to Schroedinger's Cat in that he is both a moderate and a conservative until you ask him a question, you'll enjoy the article.
