A Wee Little Man

When I was a little boy, the only thing I knew about this man was that he was small. Later I realized that he was a tax collector and nobody has to tell someone from West Virginia the government is bad and the tax collectors are the worst of the worst. Later when I was [Read More...]

A Warning: Kill the King at Our Peril

The English murdered their King today and there is a lesson in it for America. The English Civil War was a bloody mess where no side was particularly “good” and no side was utterly evil. The wealthy wanted to run things through their tool, parliament, and the King was determined not to let them. Like [Read More...]

The State of the Presidential Race and a Live Blog of the GOP Debate

The race for the White House is soon to get real data: votes from voters. Pundits know polling is becoming more untrustworthy (see the Bevin race), but polls exist so we talk about them.

The Dove Channel and Purity

The Dove Channel aims for purity, but fails at beauty. Purity is a lovely thing despite the people who have twisted the word.

Preservation Hall: A Good Thing in America

I am already tired of politics and nobody has voted yet. Democrat and Republican: my social media is full of fury, rage, and depression. Of course, there are other people posting cat videos, but those jolly souls do not need encouragement. They already live better lives.

Thank You Andy Jackson, But You Should Not Have Been President

If  only Andrew Jackson had never been President, he would have remained an American hero. Instead, he won and power was wholly bad for him.

LinLin the Dog: When Love Goes Awry

Walking down the hallway of a hotel, I saw a terrifying sight: a painting of LinLin the Dog. LinLin must have lived no later than 1907 given the date of the building, the virtues that made his owner paint him are forgotten, but ugly is forever. LinLin has become an object of terror.

Education is a human activity and the heart of education is the relationship between the teacher and the student. Socrates and Glaucon, Jesus and John: history is made, in part, [Read More...]
