Let Them Eat Purpose

Rick Warren, pastor of Orange County's Saddleback megachurch and author of The Purpose Driven Life, announced plans to adopt genocide-ravaged Rwanda as the world's first "Purpose Driven Nation." He plans to use the same "small group" model of evangelical missionizing outlined in his book to disburse aid, build schools and hospitals, and turn the country's poor citizens into entrepreneurs. The project has the blessing of the White House's faith-based initiatives czar James Towey, who told Time reporter David Van Biema, "In the past, government has been indifferent or hostile toward efforts such as this one. That is not the case with this Administration." So by our count, this makes Rwanda potentially both the first purpose driven and faith-based-endorsed nation on Earth. If we were Rwanda, we'd be a tad suspicious: all these hyphenated virtues are probably just the prelude to making you the secret weapon to defeat the axis of evil.

'Miga and Carlos' by Wonkette Operative 'Chica'

It's Father's Day, which means it's time for Yr Dok Zoom and his son to go to brunch and check out the downtown Boise Father's Day Car Show so we can ooh and ah over the very same Corvettes 'n' Mustangs 'n' lovingly-restored classic cars that are there every year, and I will probably once again point at the '68 Beetle converted to run on electricity and say, "Oh look, a Voltswagen!" Traditions matter. (Kid Zoom is 22, so I may also/instead meet him for cocktails later like grown up human people.)

Don't worry about any deep thoughts on the Meaning of Fatherhood here -- we're just going to enjoy the goofy side of dadding, which as far as I'm concerned is the best thing I've done with my time. Especially since my role model for parenting was the unnamed Dad from "Calvin and Hobbes."

As any fool knows, ice rises to the top of liquids because it's cold, and just wants to be closer to the sun so it can warm up. It's all in the book you get when you become a father.
