The Best Of The Dish This Weekend

Morsi Supporters Continue Protest One Day After Scores Killed

When Egypt exploded again, the Dish was there. Small signs of incipient sanity among Senate Republicans were gleaned. My other faves: Scorsese on visual literacy; Wendell Berry on the landscape of the Gospels; the need for a Christian defense of the natural world; and this sharp meditation on idolatry inspired by Pope Francis’s first Encyclical.

The most popular post of the weekend was my summary of second thoughts on Anthony Weiner; the second was about the Goths of Nairobi.

Apologies for the lateness of this post. I unwound this weekend and just got back from a late dinner.

See you in the morning.
