Leadership 101: Three Tips for Finding Leaders

  I have gotten to work with some great leaders such as Presidents Clyde Cook and Barry Corey from Biola University, Berkeley law professor Phillip E. Johnson, and fine deans like Doris Warren, Matt Boyleston, and Chris Hammons of HBU. I have a chance to watch the genius of Provost Robert Stacey of The Saint Constantine School [Read More…]

Family: So wow!

When someone asked me about my family, I thought: “So. Wow!” Being at a loss for words is not usual for me. My temptation, trained into me by Pam Baker in tenth grade social studies, is to begin a five paragraph essay on any topic. This is good for school, but not so good for [Read More…]

Madden Football: Thank You EA Sports

Every Christmas I hope to get the newest version of Madden Football. Perhaps it is time to say thank you to the artists at EA Sports. My very first football game was a handheld with flashing LED lights. One manipulated one light through a series of other lights in a running play or passed the [Read More…]

Growing Up at the Holidays

I enjoyed Christmas as a child and now enjoy it in my fifties, the youth of old age. I am thankful for a good childhood, given to me by a healthy community, that made this possible. Growing up has been hard to do . . . especially in a way compatible with Christmas. Growing up [Read More…]

Do Not Be A Scrooge (The Early One)

There is a weird fashion amongst conservatives to say something nice about Scrooge: he paid relatively well, he had a dry wit. Both of those are “facts” and yet nobody should want to be Scrooge . . . the early one. You can pay your workers (relatively) well and still make the workplace miserable if [Read More…]

Star Wars: The Force Awakens- A Review (Spoiler Warning)

Star Wars may be the myth of our era, the equivalent of Homer to the ancients. Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Darth Vader have achieved an existence independent of their original creators or even the time when they were born. They don’t quite belong to the fans either, because they also are discussed by “haters.” A [Read More…]

On seeing the Original Star Wars Film

At sixteen I was stunned because we were leaving the 1970’s when Disney was moribund (we are looking at you That Darn Cat) and serious films with Jane Fonda were made. Seriously. And then I sat with my brother, Doug, Rob, and Uncle Roddy and saw Star Wars. I had grooves in my palms from [Read More…]

Extremism in Defense of Christianity is Vice, Apathy is No Virtue

Barry Goldwater said: “Extremism in defense of liberty is no vice.” He lost and he was wrong. I once heard a youth pastor say: “We need to be radical for Jesus.” He lost the group and he was wrong. Whatever Goldwater meant by the phrase, he should not have used it, because extremism is always [Read More…]

Thoughts and Prayers

Three cheers for anyone outside the immediate area of a crisis who refuses to pontificate or politicize, but pauses, ponders, and prays. We do not know what motivated the massacre in San Bernardino. While we do not know, there is nothing worse than saying we should “do” something . . . by which people mean [Read More…]

I accuse: HRC and the Values Needed for a Republic

The United States of America has always sinned and one of her sins was nearly fatal to her existence: slavery. The Republic survived the purge of our original sin, barely, because a great leader led good men and women to emulate Christ. As Jesus died to make men holy, they lived and died to make [Read More…]
