It appears that there is an alternative to reading Robert Thiel’s Church of God News blog by another LCG member, Wallace Smith. It’s called Thoughts En Route. I’ve only briefly toured it, but it appears pretty insightful. He doesn’t just report on events, but he offers commentary, often digging into the factual background of a matter.
For example, yesterday’s posting was on “2012, Maya experts, Tomorrow’s World, and three bowls of chili”, in which he talks to an actual Mayan expert about the whole 2012 speculation. Well worth reading, in my opinion!
