Why I’m No Longer A Journalist, But Just A Blogger

People keep calling me a journalist, but that’s not quite true. I have attempted to act in that capacity in the past with varying levels of success, but no longer. I never made an announcement. I just quietly walked away from that vocation. I suppose I could be considered a pundit of sorts, but that [Read More…]

People ask me to attend a lot of events. I have to decline a lot. I just don’t have the funds to travel.

My Love Affair with Bookstores

The saddest fact of my life is that I live in a county without a bookstore. True, we have a place that specializes in antique books, but particular editions of Gone With the Wind or bejeweled Victorian Jewish prayer books don’t fill the craving I get for the literary arts.

Pagan Values: Justice, David Barton & the McCollum Decision

A while back, without so much as asking Jason of The Wild Hunt, I kicked off a campaign to get him on The Daily Show to provide a different perspective on David Barton and his activities. Barton’s interview made me angry and I knew his organization, Wallbuilders, has been a factor in keeping Patrick McCollum [Read More…]
