Weekly Roundup

Here are a few stories from this week that deserve notice:

* The Union of Evangelical Christians-Baptists in Russia recently held its gathering. The meeting included visitors from numerous countries, and remarks from the Vice President of the Baptist Union of Ukraine. It is good to see efforts by Russian Baptists to not only reach their nation but also reach across borders to peacefully join with other Baptists.

* A study from the University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg Public Policy Center found that The Colbert Report taught viewers about presidential campaign finance laws and issues better than traditional news program. As a longtime viewer of the show, I am not surprised. His activist role in exposing the problems of the current SuperPAC system was brilliant. I have played multiple clips from his program in some of my political communication courses, so perhaps I owe Colbert partial instructor credit.

* In an NPR interview, author John Green, who is a hit author right now, offered a great description of what it means to be an author:
The sandy-haired author said the process of writing a book is like a long, lonely game of Marco Polo.
"In which you're in your basement alone for years and years, saying, 'Marco. Marco. Marco. Marco. Marco. And then if you're lucky, someone writes you and says ... Polo."
Guess that is it for this week, so now I should get back to my latest book project. Marco.
