Online Reading (December 11, 2007)

Manners: A brilliant article by Mark Steyn on rudeness and the what it says about society.

Environment: An Australian professor believes that there should be a tax on having excess children, to better help the planet.

Canada: A young Muslim woman in Canada is murdered, and her father is in custody. There seems to have been a disagreement about her not wearing hijab to school.

Epistemology: A thumping good article on Christian worldview is posted at The Gospel Coalition.

 Anger: Okay, I know that stories in the paper aren’t to be believed at face value. But if you read this story without getting angry, you are a far more gentle person than I.
