Like the rest of mankind

Us versus them. We’re right; you’re wrong. They’re bad; we’re good. We’re all about reason; you’re mentally insane. There are a lot of lines being drawn these days, lines meant to distinguish the… Continue reading

The afterlife as seen from the beforedeath

Rogue mothers have no decency

The third infant in three months was thrown to her death from a New York City apartment building yesterday. Well, why not? Six months old, 1 month old, 1 hour old….plus nine months.… Continue reading

Forty-two years ago today the Supreme Court issued its Roe v. Wade decision, and since then over 53 million babies have been killed in the womb. Baby…or fetus? Kill…or terminate? This is a… Continue reading

The most momentous junction

New Year’s resolution…blah, blah, blah,…lose weight, quit smoking, get healthy, …blah, blah, blah…off the diet, still lighting up, quit the gym…blah, blah, blah. Wait eleven and a half months. Repeat. It’s that time… Continue reading

Confident hope

Oh, the frenzy on the Ellen show this time of year. I’ll bet tickets for her 12 Days of Giveaways 2015 are already sold out. You snag one of those and not only… Continue reading
