A wunderkammer of discoveries, compiled by Comment and illuminated for our readers' edification and entertainment. We do not necessarily endorse the external content below.

The 2008 Comment Manifesto is available in two forms: read it online here, or print the PDF version here.

. . . And Comment recommends a sister from its publisher, Cardus Policy in Public. The most recent edition includes insight on Canada's 2009 federal budget—handed down in Ottawa this week—in the context of broader commentary on how we should be structuring our cultural and financial lives.

. . . Finally, we again draw the attention of all our readers in the Michigan area to next Tuesday, February 3rd. Comment is on the road again, and editor Gideon Strauss will speak for the first time at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan, bringing his unique perspective on worldviews and vocations for Christian university students. Don'tt miss this rare opportunity to meet him and other Comment and Cardus staff, while enjoying pizza and drinks on the house. The lecture, from 5:45 pm - 7:00 pm, will be preceded by an exhibit near Calvin's library from 10 am - 1 pm, and followed by an informal Q&A from 7-8 pm.

More info on the event can be found on Facebook or at cardus.ca.
