BYU Dick Cheney Protest Photo Courtesy of Onelowerlight Photo BlogToday, hundreds of students and faculty protested the planned commencement address of Dick Cheney. And, it happened, of all places at the Lord’s very own University, BYU. I say, Rise and Shout Cougs—you did good. There is some great coverage. The best site, I’ve seen for photos is at Onelowerlight’s blog. (who allowed me to repost a couple over here. Other posts covering the protests at Onelowerlight can be found here, here, here, here, and here. He is a BYU student and took a great selection of photos which he has posted.

Updated 9:03 a.m Hugh Hewitt has an interesting post on the New York Times’ take on the Romney fundraising success. Briefly glancing over the Times’ article, I think Hewitt has a point. The Times is playing the Mormon Church card in Romney’s fundraising success, which is simply inaccurate. (more…)

salt-lake-temple.jpgWell, it’s Sunday afternoon, and the final session of General Conference is about to start. The same conference threads I referenced in the morning session are still open and active. (Note these notes are rough and need to be cleaned up, which I will do shortly; but have a few things to do prior to that). (more…)

Tabernacle Choir At ConferenceSunday morning on Conference weekend, and we’ve had some remarkable and historic Conference sessions so far. Bloggernacle conference threads this morning still find Ronan, wishin’ and hopin’ over at BCC. DKL has a Sunday morning thread over at Mormon Mentality. Finally, Russell over at Times and Seasons has also opened up a thread. You’ll find very insightful commentary at all three, with a touch of humor and possibly irreverence thrown in every now and again. (more…)
