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 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. Purity, holiness before God, is necessary for a Christian and leads to beauty. Purity includes, but is not limited to sexual purity for men and women.

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. Here is good, good news about America: time tends [Read More…]

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.

The Way of the Grifter: What Hillary Clinton can Teach Us

The Clintons are amazing. They have somehow grown very, very rich through public service. Other politicians have done well by doing badly, but the Clintons are in a league of their own.

Religion and Science Need Each Other

Natural science has done good things for humankind. My ability to work while on a plane flying across a continent is a gift from scientists following the scientific methods to improve human knowledge and life.

Bing and Bowie: the Old Order Changes

David Bowie is dead. Many (all?) of my students will have to be told who David Bowie was. Nothing fades so quickly as celebrity and we don’t know if in thirty years anyone will recall David Bowie.

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.
