“Don’t be surprised if Mitt Romney is on the GOP primary ballot”

Governor Mitt Romney

  http://washingtonexaminer.com/dont-be-surprised-if-mitt-romney-is-on-the-gop-primary-ballot/article/2551045 I doubt that he'll run.  But I wish he would. (The Washington Examiner, by the way, is a front organization for Fox News, and Hugh Hewitt is a pen name for Sean Hannity.  Or something like that.  Anyway, I apparently take my marching orders from Sean Hannity and Fox.)   … [Read more...]

Howard Zinn, “Agit Prof”

Professor Greenberg doesn't LOOK much like Sean Hannity . . .

  In the wake of my recent comment about Dinish D'Souza's film America, some of you have shown a bit of interest in the late leftist historian Howard Zinn.  Here, brought to my notice by Paul Peterson (no relation), is a balanced discussion of Zinn and his work: http://www.newrepublic.com/article/112574/howard-zinns-influential-mutilations-american-history It's from The New Republic, which a few out there will probably suspect to be a front for Fox … [Read more...]

“Dissent and Mormon Mission”

St. Patrick's Cathedral, in New York City

   A Dominican Catholic priest looks at excommunication for apostasy in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints  -- something that's been in the news of late: http://www.firstthings.com/blogs/firstthoughts/2014/07/dissent-and-mormon-mission Thanks to Nathaniel Hancock for bringing this item to my notice.   … [Read more...]

“The Parent Trap”

Always look to the state as the most reliable guardian of children,

   Here's a scary and somewhat infuriating item from the New York Times -- the infamous ultra-right-wing rag that operates as a front for Sean Hannity and Fox News (from whom I get all of my "facts" and by whom I'm spoon fed all of my opinions): http://mobile.nytimes.com/2014/07/20/opinion/sunday/ross-douthat-the-parent-trap.html?_r=1   … [Read more...]

Le Disgraziate

Surprisingly, you may not be the only person there.

   My friend and colleague Bill Hamblin is, as I write, cavorting about Italy, where he served his mission many, many, many, many -- many -- years ago.  Based on his recent experiences with public transportation in Rome, he's now thinking of trying his hand at grand opera: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/enigmaticmirror/2014/07/16/le-disgraziate/ Been there, done that.  Recently. But I'm thinking more of ballet.  Ever seen me do … [Read more...]

“It’s official: Americans say Mitt Romney was pretty much right about Russia”

Too late they recognize the truth

   http://m.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-fix/wp/2014/07/14/its-official-americans-say-mitt-romney-was-pretty-much-right-about-russia/ Of course he was. Unfortunately, my citation of this article will merely demonstrate to at least two of my critics that I really do get all of my "facts" and opinions from Fox News:  The notoriously right-wing tabloid calling itself the "Washington Post" is probably a wholly-owned subsidiary of Fox, and … [Read more...]

“How Harrison Ford’s broken leg could affect ‘Star Wars’ Episode VII”

The man himself

  Of such small things is history -- including military and film history -- made: http://www.deseretnews.com/article/865606673/How-Harrison-Ford7s-broken-leg-could-affect-Star-Wars-Episode-VII.html?pg=all#Vf45HOccqFqbFaSZ.01 I know the author well.   … [Read more...]
