Falwell funeral and legacy

Your blogstress, alas, has been much too busy making a living lately to attend to her life's work of making the world safe for libertines. For instance, she has not been able to find a minute to craft a witty take-down of Newt Gingrich's hysterical commencement address to the 2007 class of Liberty University, part of the legacy left behind by the late Rev. Jerry Falwell.

For Newt's part, the serial adulterer decried a culture of "radical secularism" that has gripped the nation. (Read more here, in an amusing piece by Michael Shear. You cybertrix prays that Newt enters the Republican presidential race. What fun that would be!

On a more serious note, you'll surely want to reconsider the legacy of Rev. Falwell in light of this thoughtful op-ed piece by your écrivaine's dear friend, Hans Johnson and his good friend, William Eskridge.

The Falwell funeral will commence at 1:00 p.m. at Rev. Falwell's Thomas Road Baptist Church. You can watch it here.

Please do report back to your blogstress, mes amis, for she, alas will not be able to watch. She will be on the choo-choo to New York, there to watch her editors at TAPPED receive the Hillman Award for Best Blog. How do ya like them apples?
