stream of consciousness

Here are some things on my mind this Friday morning:

•Vin Scully is coming back for a 65th year of broadcasting Dodger Baseball. He is, in my opinion, the greatest of them all. I know Tiger, Cardinal, Cub and Yankee fans might have a quarrel with that, but each of those announcers who were actually peers of Scully’s said themselves they thought he was the best.

•I was blessed to attend a one-day Catalyst at Saddleback Church this week—featuring Andy Stanley and Craig Groeschel. One quote I’m still chewing on came from Craig in a session on creating a culture of accountability on staff: “You are only as strong as you are honest.”

•California became the first state to mandate transgender access to all restrooms, locker-rooms and sports teams. You can read a rather charitable, if not dishonest piece on the law by CNN here. I say dishonest because the most controversial piece of the law is left completely out of the article—I’ll get to that in a bit.
