"I'll Link to That" -- Peggy Noonan's blog-style piece this week

Peggy Noonan makes some interesting connections in this week's commentary. After giving some background about her candidate for patron saint of the Internet, she writes:
Why is St. Joseph Cupertino the obvious patron saint of the Internet? Because he flew through the air, lifted by truth. Because no establishment could keep him down. Because he empowered common people. Because they in fact saw his power before the elites of the time did. And because it could not be an accident that the center of the invention of the Internet, ground zero of Silicon Valley, is Cupertino, Calif., named for the saint centuries ago.

Was God in this? Of course. Does God do such things for no reason? He does not.
Read the whole thing.

Amid the myriad uncertainties of life, a few fundamental principles of our existence are fixed and immutable, if not always comforting to us. God is in his heaven; the sun will always rise in the east; death will eventually overtake all of us; the Chicago Cubs will never win a pennant, much less a World Series. And Peggy Noonan will always be good. I especially liked her comments about Hillary (a.k.a.Lady Macbeth) and St. Joseph of Cupertino. Thanks for sharing this with us.
