Frrrrriday Rrrrroundup! #24

An end-of-weekly roundup collecting fffffive of the fffffantabulous things I find stumbling around the web during the week here, but which I post on one of the many other Internet outlets I stop by (or tweet at) during my travels. More about the genesis here.

This manifesto on tolerance from Episcopal Bishop John Shelby Sprong first made the rounds last year around this time, but it is (sadly) more timely than ever.  [delicious-ed, via Bryan Fuller]

Penelope Trunk has been killing it lately. This piece on why she now sorts her books by color is, like the best kinds of essays, about that and so much more. [Google Reader-ed]

I think I lost a year of my own life reading this harrowing story of a young man's two-year stretch for armed robbery. He told it in a series of posts to a forum he frequented before doing time; someone compiled all the pieces, as well as his answers to further questions posted by other forum members. Caveat: while it's really well-told, it's about prison, i.e., not for the faint of heart. [Tumbled]

Even if the story is 100% false (and hey, don't believe everything you see on the TV news), the footage of this lion greeting his Good Samaritan after a long absence is wonderful to watch. [Facebook-ed]
