  • Taliban Kills Aid Worker. Taliban soldiers killed a Christian aid worker from South Africa in a drive-by motorcycle shooting. A Taliban spokesman said, “We killed her … because she was spreading Christianity.”
  • Through the Storm. Bill Reichart reviews the new book written by Lynne Spears, mother of Britney and Jamie Lynn (published by Thomas Nelson). Lynne describes her book as “the story of one simple, Southern woman whose family got caught in a tornado called fame and who is still trying to sort through the debris scattered all over her life in the aftermath.”
  • Lord of the Rings Live in London. The Royal Albert Hall and the London Philharmonic Orchestra will present The Lord of the Rings – The Fellowship of the Ring in high definition with Howard Shore’s Academy award-winning score performed live on stage by the original soundtrack orchestra and choirs. I so want to be there!
  • Sarah Palin Live in New York. Gov. Sarah Palin enjoyed some good-natured fun at her own expense on Saturday Night Live this weekend, which enjoyed its highest ratings in 14 years. Tina Fey’s impersonation of Palin is pretty amazing. (Can you tell them apart? Apparently Alec Baldwin can’t!)
