Quick Hits: Correct your false thinking about money. And life. Also, a chimp chooses porn.

  • Finally, I’m not exactly sure how to hit this. See, Gina the chimp has been given access to a television set. She’s mastered the remote control, and now enjoys watching human pornography every night. The article doesn’t indicate why, but I’m sure there’re are a whole host of theories. And it’s a funny story, which is why I’m putting it here. However, I’m concerned by the use of “addicted” in the article. There’s a tendency to refer to any hard-to-break habit or harmful practice as an addiction, and they’re really not the same thing. Unless the chimpanzee is suffering anxiety, nausea, cold sweats and tremors when denied her favorite smut, then it’s probably not an addiction. Otherwise, I hope Gina finds a nice 12-Step program.

Quick Hits of the Week

  • This past Tuesday was the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, and of course I’ve got some thoughts. First, I have one very good friend with a birthday on that day, and I’d like to wish him a belated happy birthday. Hope this year’s was better than the previous 10. I’d also like to share some perspectives on things we can learn from that day and the months and years that have followed. Kevin over at Nitty Gritty Dirt Man writes about a visit to the memorial site and what we can learn from it. It makes me want to visit NYC again, just to go there. Ken at Popehat contributes with his list of ten things that he wants his children to learn from 9/11. The whole list is excellent, and deserves your attention. Honestly, I don’t like everything that this nation has become after that day, and I don’t see it getting better anytime soon.
  • I love freedom, so I’m against vaguely worded and enforced obscenity laws. I love Jesus more, so I recognize that pornography isn’t a good thing for my (or anyone’s) relationship with their wife. Pornography hurts. I’m not interested in making it illegal, but I am interested in protecting myself and family from it. You can, too.

Is there something valuable or important or cool or funny or weird or awesome out there I missed this week? I can’t hit it all, but you should let me know about it by dropping me a line or sharing it in the comments below! I’d appreciate the heads up.
