Neale Donald Walsch, author of the best-selling series “Conversations With God,” recently posted a personal Christmas essay on the spiritual Web site Beliefnet about his son’s kindergarten winter pageant.
During a dress rehearsal, he wrote, a group of children spelled out the title of a song, “Christmas Love,” with each child holding up a letter. One girl held the “m” upside down, so that it appeared as a “w,” and it looked as if the group was spelling “Christ Was Love.” It was a heartwarming Christmas story from a writer known for his spiritual teachings.
Except it never happened — to him. [more inside]

Overheard in New York:
A site so complex, so subtle and deceptive, that its site address couldn't possibly
tell you all you need to know about the site's content.

Can you never think of the right thing to say? Trouble relating in social circumstances?
can help. This guide to verbal self-defense
is extensive, detailed, and quite clearly the work of a troubled mind
. Start here
, or search by insult
on the "sunporch", key/codeword
in the "kitchen", bridge
in the "wine cellar", or response
in the "nursery." Examine one of the many, many stargates(use this handy map
, organized by stage of psychological development)... read one of the many, many essays
... wherever you go it is an explosion of advice, comebacks, hypothetical situations, and who knows how many MSPaint masterpieces
. Spend a minute, spend a day, spend your life trying to figure this site out.

The Public Conversations Project
"promotes constructive conversations and relationships among people who have differing values, world views, and perspectives about divisive public issues." They offer guidelines
in discussing issues with your community
as well as a resource in creating dialogue
. When I find myself reduced to name calling, I need these sort of communication tools.
