Helen Alvaré Speaks Her Mind On The HHS Mandate

A few days before Thanksgiving, the Supreme Court decided to hear arguments in a couple of cases regarding religious liberty and the HHS Mandate. The biggest surprise to me was how this news garnered scant attention.

Lou Reed, Requiescat In Pace

I just heard the news that Lou Reed passed away. Rolling Stone has an obituary up, as does every other wire service on the planet.

If he was anything like me, he was probably a big time sinner. So I said a prayer for his soul, and the souls of everyone else who have passed on to eternity with him today. [Read more...]
