Back in March David Brooks wrote an Op-Ed piece in The New York Times about Sandra Bullock’s month. He begins with these words:

“Two things happened to Sandra Bullock this month. First, she won an Academy Award for best actress. Then came the news reports claiming that her husband is an adulterous jerk. So the philosophic question of the day is: Would you take that as a deal? Would you exchange a tremendous professional triumph for a severe personal blow?”

The Sandra Bullock Trade just might make you think about life and priorities.

Also, you might enjoy reading or listening to NPR’s Do You Believe in Miracles? Most Americans Do. The information discussed is based on results of  a Pew Forum on Religion.
