The Best Of The Dish This Weekend

Wimbledon Tennis Championships In Close Up

I write this in a very summery after-glow – on the day a British male won Wimbledon and after my first viewing of the Dina Martina show in Provincetown. Whole. New. Level. (Hence the Pimms above).

The best things on the Dish this weekend: this beautiful analysis of the new encyclical “The Light Of Faith“; and this TED talk on the importance of doubt in faith (starting with Mohammed).

Here’s the best take on the situation in Egypt yet recorded; why whales need to be called by names; the perfect ten-minute vacation; and why Leon Wieseltier needs to get out more.

The most popular post of the weekend was the twelve-year old Egyptian pundit; my case against rushing to canonize Pope John Paul II came second; along with America’s New Favorite ASL Interpreter.

See you in the morning.
