Compassion: This incredible photo marks the end of Matador Torero Alvaro Munera’s career. He collapsed in remorse mid-fight when he realized he was having to prompt this otherwise gentle beast to fight. He went on to become an avid opponent of bullfights. Even grievously wounded, the bull did not attack Munera.

Live from Golgotha: The Gospel according to Gore Vidal

St. Paul freely improvises his tales as he evangelizes. “‘All things are contained within the single mind of Onespc_vidal True God in His three aspects.’ Saint Paul could dispense this sort of smooth bullshit while taking apart and reassembling a Holy Rolodex machine,” Timothy relates as he witnesses St. Paul in action. Paul speaks in “ye olde” when he quotes the voluminous Christ. Timothy remarks that when Saul of Tarsus meets the Christ vidal-cover-live from golgothaghost, he converts to a religion that Saul/Paul himself had not yet founded. People are consistently disappointed to learn that Christ weighed 400 lbs. and spoke with a lisp. “Why doth thou persecute-eth me-th?” There is an interesting plot twist when Judas is mistaken for Christ and almost crucified. It seems that the “real Christ” was a militant Zionist, and Paul’s golden-rule Christianity an improvisation. Paul journeys from town to town raising money and founding churches, adding to his Holy rolodex, and tap-dancing. Cameos from celebrities such as Nero, Petronius, and Shirley MacLaine are interspersed throughout Timothy’s odyssey from CE 33 to CE 96.”

Who’s got milkweed?

The monarch butterfly has it bad. Fortunately, we have a solution. As part of our Toronto-based Homegrown National Park Project, we’ve #GotMilkweed.

This year the number of monarchs overwintering in Mexico hit an all-time low. Severe weather and the disappearance of milkweed (the plant they depend on) along their migratory path are making an already epic journey downright dangerous. There are even doubts that the monarchs will make it back to Canada!

That’s why we launched the #GotMilkweed earlier this month. We’re planting a milkweed corridor through the City of Toronto. And the response so far has been amazing!

Torontonians bought almost 1,000 milkweed plants in the first few days and are close to double that amount now. And hundreds of nice folks like you contributed $25 to buy plants for our volunteer Homegrown Park Rangers to plant in local schoolyards and parks. The Toronto Star even splashed the story on its front page.

Want to help?Torontonians can order milkweed now, while supplies last. When spring finally arrives, plant them in your yard or on your balcony. You can even become a butterfly “block captain” and inspire your neighbours, local schools, stores and churches to do the same.

Not from Toronto? No worries. You can check in with local conservation groups and nurseries in your community. Here is a good list of local nurseries. If they don’t stock milkweed species native to your region, politely ask them to start.

The monarch butterflies have it bad. Help us bring them back, one milkweed plant at a time.
