Long-hitting Justin Thomas–Player of the Year last year on the PGA Tour–won the first sudden-death playoff hole against Luke List just minutes ago in the PGA Tour’s The Honda Classic at PGA National’s Champion Course in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. It was Thomas’ eight PGA Tour win. List is still searching for his first win. Luke List was the sole leader by one stroke over Justin Thomas starting this final round today. Midway through the last nine holes, both players… Read more

In the wake of last week’s mass killing at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, that left seventeen people dead, President Donald Trump proposed that some school teachers and athletic coaches undergo firearms training and carry a firearm on school campuses. This is an element of the agenda of the National Rifle Association (NRA). It is one of the most politically powerful lobby groups in the nation, with five million members. It has always been against more stringent… Read more

Last Wednesday, Evangelist Billy Graham died of natural causes at his home in Montreat, North Carolina. He was arguably the greatest religious figure of the twentieth century. In our world of scandals that seem to emerge everywhere about famous people, including religious leaders, Billy Graham was untainted. He and his three closest associates in ministry–Cliff Barrows, George Beverly Shea, and Grady Wilson–were a close-knit group that kept each other accountable and remained a team throughout Billy’s entire career. That, I… Read more

The 1949 Hollywood film directed by Cecille B. DeMille and entitled “Samson and Delilah” was the highest grossed film of 1950. It is a love story drawn from a biblical story about lovers with those names. This fascinating and lengthy story in the Bible, which is much more than a love story, is recorded in Judges 13–16 in the Old Testament. Now, this same idea is being tried again, but on a comparatively smaller budget. And since it is a… Read more

President Trump says he wants to have a big military parade. The U.S. hasn’t really done that since right after WWII. I think that occasion certainly called for it. But to me, military parades are mostly about national ego which is largely to the detriment of other nations. It says, “Look at our military strength. Don’t mess with us.” (This photo is of the first U.S. Army parade held after WWII, held in Tokyo, Japan. I’d rather the U.S. would… Read more

Five days ago, Nikolas Cruz, a mentally-disturbed 19-year old walked onto the campus of his former high school–Majory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, South Florida–and shot and killed 17 students with a semi-automatic AR-15 rifle. After being apprehended by authorities, he soon was crying miserably about what he had done. It seems like almost every month in the United States of American–which has been the leader of the free world and greatest nation on earth for centuries–it has one… Read more

Today, two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson won for third time on the PGA Tour at Riviera Country Club in picturesque Pacific Palisades, California. It was the Genesis Open. Bubba had won there in 2014 and 2016. And he had not won on the Tour since then. The tall and lanky, long-hitting, handsy, feel player finished two strokes ahead of second-place finishers Kevin Na and Tony Finau. Like Bubba, Tony is also a big hitter. Both Bubba and Tony are outspoken… Read more

Thursday night, Fox News political commentator Laura Ingraham said on her TV program, The Ingraham Angle, that the top NBA player for the past ten years Lebron James, who is African-American, should “shut up and dribble.” She was disparaging James for his speaking out against certain things about President Donald Trump. James has been periodically doing that for some time, probably even while Trump was campaigning for president. Heh, he has not done it as much as I have in… Read more

Yesterday, FBI special counsel Robert Mueller filed criminal charges against thirteen Russian nationals for conspiring to interfere in our 2016 presidential election against Democratic nominee Hilary Clinton and for Republican nominee Donald Trump. President Trump quickly responded by saying the indictment, “The results of the election were not impacted. The Trump [election] campaign did nothing wrong–no collusion!” I don’t think he can know that. How can he know everything the members of his campaign did or didn’t do. On the… Read more

The FBI’s ongoing investigation of Russian meddling in our U.S. presidential election in 2016, which is being led by former ten-year Director of the FBI and now its special counsel,  just made a huge announcement today. It indicted 13 Russian nationals in meddling in our 2016 presidential election by trying to help Republican nominee Donald Trump defeat Democratic nominee Hilary Clinton. Trump, of course, won the election, which was a big upset. The indictment says nothing about whether or not… Read more
