  1. The Shimmel sisters are really impressive. You can tell they have two strong parents who've set them up for future success. As good as they were in the NCAAs I'm more impressed with Jude's academic award as Rez schools don't have the greatest reputation for academic preparation.

    Shoni might get a shot at the W, Jude probably won't, but I see Jude going back to the Rez and making a big difference in a lot of people's lives.

  2. Rather odd religion beat column in the New York Times: ‘Griner Effect’ May Change the Game at Baylor. The announcement by the basketball star Brittney Griner that she is a lesbian has altered an awkward relationship between Baylor University and its gay students.


    Erica Heath, quoted in the NYT, is far more colorful than any Baylor student I've ever heard of: she styles herself as "pansexual" and has never seen the Lady Bears play.
