Think I might get in trouble with this one?

In case you haven't noticed, the Obama/Biden transition team is using as their "official" Internet presence, after bum-rushing a milquetoast bureaucracy with the request. I asked them to stop:

Please cease and desist the use of the .gov Internet domain immediately. Since there is no "Office of the President-Elect" in the governmental hierarchy of the United States, such misrepresentation as your camp is engaged in is disingenuous. You insult the work of legitimate governmental entities with your presumption.

As an indication of maturity, please us a .com, .org, .info, or other generally acceptable domain. It is a deception to identify anything having to do with the Obama administration as "governmental" before his inauguration.

If you'd like to pass along a similar sentiment, well, you know where to find Barry and Joe.

Here is grace.

People who've followed this blog for awhile know that I've aimed it at some awfully graceless attitudes from time to time--with most of those attitudes being held by people who profess to be fellow Christians. But when there is the chance to point at something which is literally "graceful," it is worth reading.

The above link, to Michelle Malkin's column referencing the story of Dong Yun Yoon, holds him up as an example of patriotism. Her praise, however, is far too faint; it is not mere patriotism in action, but grace. I have no way of knowing whether or not Mr. Yoon is a professing Christian, but his example is compelling, whether as a brother in the faith or as a real-life Samaritan whose actions should convict us all.
