Now I Have This Song Stuck in my Head (Thank you very much Jimmy Fallon)

This is one of the more creative videos I’ve seen this year. Jimmy Fallon takes it upon himself to help prove definitively 2) that Mariah Carey doesn’t need auto-tune (and if my voice sounded that good I’d never stop singing), and 2) that he has no rhythm. Holy cow. Anyway, watch and enjoy and maybe [Read More…]

Gift Ideas for Book Lovers 2012 – Christmas Gifts for the Reader in Your Life

If you are buying a gift for a book lover this year I have some ideas. The obvious ideas – e-readers and such – I won’t bother with because you know all about them. But, there are also a lot of readers who have a very specialized set of needs when it comes to book [Read More…]

The Fix’s List of Best Presidential Biographies

The Fix‘s Chris Natalie Jennings and Sean Sullivan made a call to readers to submit their favorite presidential biography.

Can Texas Secede from the Union? A Creative Way to Answer

If Texas split into 5 smaller states they would be named: North Texas, South Texas, East Texas, West Texas, and Austin. That is so true!

If I’ve learned anything in the past 23 years of [Read More…]

Nate Silver Goes Off on Politico – The Best Post-Election Interview I’ve Heard Comes From ESPN

I’ve never even heard of the BS Report with Bill Simmons from ESPN radio. I have no idea how he got Nate Silver to open up like he did (they are both sports numbers guys and talk like they are friends), but this interview was amazing. For one thing, Silver went off about Politico, (without [Read More…]

A Few Thoughts on the Fiscal Cliff – Here’s My Prediction

I read the news for about an hour this morning, taking in everything I could read on the status of negotiations regarding the fiscal cliff. My up front disclaimer is that I’m chiefly concerned with theology and ethics, not government, but I really enjoy reading about policy. Nevertheless, as a Christian and a pastor my [Read More…]
