One blogger shares 13 advertisements that struck him by their flare; Staying with the flotilla come rain or shine; Islam seen through Bible classes; and Bahrain delivers some interesting statistics courtesy of Al Jazeera.
The appeal of smart advertising is apparent when you scroll through these:
"I’m no marketing expert, just a regular consumer. And when I come across very smart ads, I feel like sharing them with people.
Well, these are thirteen ads that I think are absolutely kick-ass! Let me know what you think."
US flotilla boat's captain John Klusmire to appear in court Tuesday and may face charges
"From US Boat to Gaza
We want to give you all a quick round up of several items related to the U.S. Boat to Gaza and the flotilla. But first….
Given the tremendous obstacles placed in the way of the flotilla we should not for a moment think this work has been in vain."
Islam in the church...and consumerism, too, I guess
"Islam is sometimes mentioned in worship and Bible classes. I'm probably going to seem overly critical, but I'm just trying to sort out what's right- how should I react, what does the Bible say, should I go along with the majority? It's more of an inward criticism or conflict. Or maybe I am hypersensitive on this or maybe it's just one of those things that for me provokes thought endlessly given the political atmosphere and times. There was a lighthearted joke- not a big deal- but it made me think about the way we talk about other religions, etc. It also made me think of some less lighthearted things about Islam I've heard from people I would otherwise consider strong in the faith, as this situation always does."
