This really says everything you need to know about the attitude in Elliott Rodger which caused him to murder six people.  Skip to 1:40 for the part where he starts talking.

The Source of the World's Problems

I was thinking this morning of the world's problems.  I think that so many of them can be explained by the following 3 facts:

1.  In order to get anything signficant done, you must be able to energize people to support your cause.

2.  In order to energize people, you must not possess any self-doubt.

3.  In order to do the RIGHT things, you must possess a decent amount of self-doubt.

Lenten Thoughts Of A High Anglican - John Betjeman

This is one of my favorite poems from one of my favorite poets, John Betjeman.  I suppose he must be the patron Saint of all whose minds wander in church.  Which is everyone, I should imagine.

Lenten Thoughts Of A High Anglican

Isn't she lovely, "the Mistress"?
With her wide-apart grey-green eyes,
The droop of her lips and, when she smiles,
Her glance of amused surprise?

How nonchalantly she wears her clothes,
How expensive they are as well!
And the sound of her voice is as soft and deep
As the Christ Church tenor bell.

But why do I call her "the Mistress"
Who know not her way of life?
Because she has more of a cared-for air
Than many a legal wife.

How elegantly she swings along
In the vapoury incense veil;
The angel choir must pause in song
When she kneels at the altar rail.

The parson said that we shouldn't stare
Around when we come to church,
Or the Unknown God we are seeking
May forever elude our search.

But I hope that the preacher will not think
It unorthodox and odd
If I add that I glimpse in "the Mistress"
A hint of the Unknown God.
