"In Art, Economy Is Always Beauty"

I'm going to take a cue from the above Henry James' quote and make this link post on the economy brief. No long lists of things I love. No rhapsodies on how my favorite foods relate to my topic. No adorable stories about my Sunday school class. No strings of adjectives. For instance, I won't write something like:

I love link posts. I love them almost as much as I love sweaters from Anthropologie and Saturday morning cartoons. I love them because they are a collection of delicious little morsels, just like a box of See's truffles! They also don't take too long to compile, which is good because I'm currently preparing a Sunday school lesson involving plastic monsters, cupcakes, and Borax. I think link posts are delightful, fantastic, and all around swell.

Who has time to read something like that? This Saturday, it's just the facts.

Do those AIG bonuses have you sharpening your pitchfork? I recommend Michael Kazin's A Short History Of American Rage for a little perspective.

It's time to brainstorm how we can support pregnant women in our communities because Economy Puts Focus On Family Planning.

Sunday school curriculum too expensive? Write your own with ideas from Rotation.org.
