Two pieces of really, really cool news in the blogosphere today:
1. Mark Byron got a job offer at a university and may have another one on the way. He's been looking for this type of work, for which he's well-suited, for several years now and I'm really happy for him.
2. Dean Esmay has decided to become a Christian. He's embracing the Roman Catholic Church, of which his wife is already a member, and it was their reverence for the Eucharist which seems to have sealed the deal for him. The Roman Catholic Church is a valid branch of Christianity with a lot going for it, despite much of its recent bad press, and it's great to know that there's a new believer out there.
