God in the Machine

Literally "God in the machine", Deus Ex Machina originally referred to Greek plays, where the "gods" would be lowered onto the stage with ropes in order to provide a quick resolution to the story. Today, Deus Ex Machina refers to any improbably and/or overly convenient character or mechanism that comes out of nowhere and saves the character(s).

Long-lasting homosexual debate goodness...

The Iron Blogger website, dedicated to presenting surprisingly well thought-out debates in a web log format, has tackled gay marriage as this week's theme!

Not only should seeing the debate in print spark some of your own thoughts, it will be a nice break from seeing the word "Iraq" in print.

If this round is anywhere near as exciting as last week's "Battle Rumsfeld," you won't be able to keep your pants dry!
