President Donald Trump is at it again. Or did he ever quit? Demeaning people about their physical appearance or other such characteristics. For example, years ago he called Hollywood actor and comedian Rosie O’Donnell “a fat pig.” In a single speech in 2007, Trump called Rosie “a degenerate” and “a slob” and “a pig.” Trump proudly calls such behavior of his resisting “political correctness,” and so many of his political supporters applaud him for it. I call it being a jerk!… Read more

Gary Woodland just won the Waste Management Phoenix Open in a one-hole playoff with Chez Reavie on the 18th hole at the TPC Stadium Course in sunny Scottsdale, Arizona. It was athletic-looking Woodland’s third win on the PGA Tour in five years. Both players closed strong to make the playoff in a big group of players on Sunday who were in the hunt. Woodland, playing out front, birdied 15, 16, and 17, and made a weak putt on his ten-foot… Read more

Rickie Fowler closed with three straight birdies today to take a one shot lead going into the final round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open at the TPC Stadium Course in Scottsdale, Arizona. I know; I was there (because I live nearby). Rickie has shot 66, 66, and 67 on the par 71 course for a three-round total of 199. But it may be quite a dog race tomorrow for the championship. Three players are tied in second place at… Read more

Superstar Jason Day, who has been fighting back trouble for a while, bested Alex Noren today in one hole to win the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines in LaJolla, California. It was their sixth playoff hole after five sudden death playoff holes yesterday ended in darkness, forcing them to return today to produce a winner. They played the par-five 18th hole again, thus four times out of six playoff holes. Day drove into the rough, laid up, and put… Read more

Three players finished tied at 10-under par, 278, for 72 holes of regulation play at the PGA Tour’s Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines 36-hole public golf facility in La Jolla, California. They were superstar Australian Jason Day, American Ryan Palmer, and Swede Alex Noren. The sudden playoff started on the par-five 18th hole on the South Course, with its green bordered on the front left with a small lake. Ryan Palmer was ousted with a par while the other… Read more

In Washington D.C. Thursday, the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists announced that the Doomsday Clock was moved 30 seconds forward to 2 minutes to midnight. That is the closest it has ever been to midnight except in the year 1953, when it was 2 minutes to midnight at the height of the Cold War. This is alarming. But for people who follow world news, it’s probably not surprising. The Doomsday Clock was created in 1947, thus two years after WWII. It… Read more

Well, not quite, but close. And what a joke! But not really. Today, The New York Times reported that last June, President Donald Trump ordered chief White House lawyer Don McGahn to fire special counsel Robert Mueller. The Times says they have four sources for this story, all of whom are present staff members at the White House. The Washington Post soon afterwards affirmed this story. Here’s what had happened. Only one month earlier, in May, 2017, the Assistant Attorney General… Read more

Franklin Graham, son of famed evangelist Billy Graham, appeared as Don Lemon’s guest on his CNN Tonight television program about two hours ago. Franklin Graham has been a big supporter of President Donald Trump despite Trump’s many faults. It has tarnished Franklin Graham’s reputation with millions of Americans. Yet he refuses to back down about it. Like many evangelicals who voted for Trump as president, Franklin Graham almost gives Donald Trump a carte blanche pass. Tonight, Franklin Graham said President Donald… Read more

Today in church we sang to God, “I worship your holy name.” What! I thought we Christians worship God, not his name. Jesus said, “Worship the Lord your God, and serve only him” (Matthew 4.10 NRSV). But the Bible has many exhortations about how Christians are to treat God’s name. For instance, the Third of the Ten Commandments says, “You shall not make wrongful use of the name of the LORD your God, for the LORD will not acquit anyone… Read more

Young, 23-year old Jon Rahm just won the PGA Tour’s CareerBuilder Challenge at the Tour-owned Stadium Course in LaQuinta, California. He defeated Andrew Landry on the fourth extra hole, the 18th hole at the Stadium Course, by holing a 15-foot putt for a birdie three. It was Rahm’s second PGA Tour victory. I think the very likable Spaniard Jon Rahm–now only in his sophomore year on the American circuit–could become the best golfer in the world during the next decade…. Read more
