I've been very remiss in not noting the two biggest--and best--additions to the web in a very long time.
The first is 610 WIP. After years of waiting, Philadelphia ex-pats can now get 610 on their desktops. It's only the best radio station in America. Go ahead, give it a listen. Just not during Howard Eskin's show. If only 610 could replace him with Tony Kornheiser . . .
The other new site--and this will be of much greater interest to most of you--is FaithAndJustice.org, a very smart project being run out of the University of Chicago by a group of liberal students interested in taking religion seriously, instead of using it as a punching bag. I'd be surprised if anything but good comes from their experiment.

Sorry to be so cynical, but when Harris-Lacewell posts a huge picture of *herself* in calling for us to better follow Jesus, something's amiss.
Replacing Eskin with Kornheiser is no way to bring in listeners. It's bad enough that Kornheiser has time on ESPN with fellow shouter Michael Wilbon. Expand Glen Macnow's show to a double shift and that would be just fine.
I was the first "web" caller the day it went live. They thought I would be one of the 'farthest' callers, but soon after people called in from Cali, Honk Kong and Japan. Eagle Nation is worldwide baybee!
FYI....610's webcast only works with IE and not Firefox.
Actually, FaithandJustice.com looks like it's nothing more than a group of religious left-wing students trying to jump on the Jim Wallis (Sojourners) bandwagon. Which is to say, nothing but MoveOn-Soros with some hesitations about abortion.
I can't believe Howard Eskin is still on the air in Philly. He was obnoxious doing the sports on KYW-TV 20 years ago!
U Chicago leftist religion blog is a loser. Didn't even bookmark it.
