January 25th will again mark the annual media blackout of the March for Life rally. A half-million people march and the (blatantly biased, extremely liberal) mass media sees nothing. The march is always completely invisible! (With the possible exception of a handful of counter protesters.)

Fr. Jay Finelli (a/k/a iPadre) produced a podcast on family and marriage that is truly excellent. Listen to it here (starting around 8:15). Father also talks about this topic on his blog (here).
