You didn’t expect that we’d say nothing about the “scandal” surrounding Rep. Weiner, did you? But we’re humanists, so we’re thoughtful about our responses. I’m pleased to share an excellent one by Dr. Marty Klein, who you may recognize as a regular columnist for past HNNs. You may also enjoy our summer intern Chris Cotelesse’s first-hand experience of attending Liberty University (warning: your worst nightmares may be confirmed) and a trio of reviews: Lady Gaga’s new album, the fifth X-Men movie now in theaters, and Bart Ehrman’s latest tome. Be sure to let us know what you like (or don’t like) by using the Facebook and Twitter buttons on each page, or emailing us at
