See what Jesus and Mo have to say about LGBT rights. You will find the rest of the cartoon here. As usual they have a well-considered and balanced view. ‘Cause there’s always two sides to everything, right?

Reading – The Francesians – Part 10

Here is the third portion of the recording of the Francesians, part ten, containing chapters thirteen through nineteen. I might have found a way around the limit set by my downloads manager. It won’t accept the upload of any file over 8MB, and these audio files quickly add up to more than that, so I tried uploading the file myself and telling the download manager where to find it. It looks like it might have worked.

If it doesn’t work for you, then you can try this Dropbox link.

Reading – The Francesians – Parts 5-9

Here is the second portion of the recording of the Francesians, comprising parts five through nine. I know, you’re probably wondering why I’ve uploaded these things as multiple files instead of one file for each segment. I would be wondering, too. It’s inefficient and cumbersome. The reason is my downloads manager. It won’t accept the upload of any file over 8MB, and these audio files quickly add up to more than that. I’ve made them as small as I can — the bitrate on these recordings is below 40 — and compressing them doesn’t make them any smaller. In fact, since today’s files were too large to allow me to combine even two of them into a ZIP file, I’ve just uploaded them singly as straight OGGs. Your total download will be 22MB and the total listening time is about an hour and twenty minutes. Once again, expect more in about a week.
