DAILY BRIEFING
Occupied

Aug. 25 - Due an online fantasy football draft that went into the wee small hours and a morning at the immigration office trying to figure out how not to get thrown out of the country next month, there won't be any blogging today.

Nicely Done

The Council of Nicaea ended on August 25, 325, resulting in the Nicene Creed. This established the doctrine of the Holy Trinity, which proved that the Father and Son were not two, but three and therefore one. This controversial creed alienated many math teachers from the church. Its repercussions eventually caused a Schism, which caused in Infidels, which caused considerable bloodshed and ultimately resulted in more Political Philosophy.

On August 25, 1925, the Sleeping Car Porters' Union was established by A. Phillip Randolph, a political malcontent who'd been agitating for reform ever since his ejection from the Wide Awake Car Porters' Union.

Happy Monday.
