So Much More Than Just a Dog

There was no traffic at 3am. That’s good in one respect as I needed to get my dog to the Emergency Animal Hospital and it’s horrible in another respect in that I knew what would happen when we got there. There was a little more traffic at 4:30am, when I drove back to my house [&hellip

Countdown to Nothing

Can you feel the excitement in the air? Me neither. But the calendar tells me we’re fast approaching something important. No, it’s not Labor Day and the end of summer (or even the return of Stephen Colbert to late night). I’m talking about the imminent return to Capitol Hill by the esteemed members of the [&hellip

Sad, But True

The Carnival: It’s Just Not the Same

by
Since the late 1800s traveling carnivals have attracted crowds around the world. Fairs of all sizes and shapes have wowed the young and old with rides, games, food, and side shows (freak shows, oddities, circus acts, demolition derbies, and animal tricks). I’ve been going to traveling carnivals for three decades now. Over the years, I

This Is What Happens When You Lose Public Trust

There is no question that the police are out of control. The killing of unarmed, mostly African American, citizens has been gaining increasing publicity. Dashboard and body camera video has captured deplorable police behavior. In many cases the official police report is directly contradicted by the video evidence. Further, if not for the

How Lame Art Thou Squabbles

The war on Christianity continues in America. On Friday, a high school band in Mississippi was… banned from playing “How Great Thou Art,” a religious hymn, during the school’s halftime show. An objective atrocity—an infringement on their rights. Proof that the enemy will not stop until Christianity is purged from their once grea

A few weeks ago the Center for Medical Progress (I know it sounds legit, but trust me it’s not) released their latest video in a string of “sting operations” against Planned Parenthood. Since that time, no one’s shut up about it. In fact, [&hellip
