1) Lost season finale tonight! Show co-creators Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof talk about how the space-time continuum will figure into the plot in this USA Today story.
2) Don't forget, you can watch this video to see all the "Lost" flash-forwards in chronological order.
3. The sister-in-law of Nicol Sponberg has set up an e-mail account where you can leave messages of condolences and support: email@example.com Nicol is a Christian musician, formerly of the group Selah, whose 10-week-old son died Tuesday night. More here.
4. Steven Curtis Chapman's manager, Jim Houser, blogs about how the Chapman's are holding up after the death last week of their 5-year-old daughter Maria.
5. Jim also recaps Maria's memorial service here.
6. The much-maligned Spam--and I'm talking about the food product, not the e-mail stuff--is gaining in popularity. (I will never understand that gelatinous substance in the can...)
7. Tired of all the depressing, negative stuff on the Internet? You may want to check out a site called Amazingly Blessed.
8. Hmmm...looks like Jerry Falwell isn't the only person to believe in divine retribution. Sharon Stone, anyone?
9. We Christians can sometimes be pretty judgmental about other people's sins. But what about the sin of gluttony? Evangelical Outpost weighs in on the issue (no pun intended) with Sin on a Bun.
10. Dr. Seuss and Linus Pauling have been inducted into the California Hall of Fame--along with the likes of Dave Brubeck, Jane Fonda, Quincy Jones and Jack LaLanne.
11. Another airline nixes free inflight snacks.
12. A country music site lists the 20 Top War and Soldier Songs.
13. Why David Archuleta Didn't Win. (hat tip to Quoth the Maven)
