I’m Giving Up Politics For Lent

Today is Ash Wednesday, and for a number of reasons, I have decided that part of my Lenten Sacrifice will giving up following, reading, and writing about the current, day to day back and forth of politics. This, obviously, will change my focus of writing here on the blog. I have planned some posts in the area of history and science and a few other things besides. However, I won’t be talking about whatever the topic du jour is. I will also be putting my Mark Levin blogging on hold until after Easter. Just an FYI.

    This year for Lent I’m giving up organized religion, and all their ceremonial practices.

    Is this a sacrifice, or a vacation? Tough call…

    There is a wisdom in many religious rituals that remains regardless of their original metaphysical foundation.

    No doubt. I’ve practiced giving up luxuries for lent in the past, and think its a good exercise in self control and discipline. I’m just in a snarky mood today.

    I was about to ask you when you intended to delight us with a new chapter of Mark Levin blogging.
