Too Much News, Too Little Time

I often feel like one of those lumberjacks we used to see in the newsreels, trying to knock a competing lumberjack off a spinning log. The foolishness comes at us so rapidly that trying to stay on top of it all before we wind up in the drink is too much for one man. That’s…

Remembering the Moral Integrity of Chris Kyle

ChrisKyle

Prior to the untimely death of Chris Kyle, all I knew about the former Navy SEAL was what I learned from a single appearance he made on The O’Reilly Factor when he was promoting his book, American Sniper, several months ago. I never read the book, and I never saw another interview with him. So…

A Confederacy of Dunces

It’s a lot like finding yourself in a movie whose cast combines the Three Stooges with…

Some Free Advice for the Republican Field

GOP Field

To be perfectly honest, I’m not crazy about any of the Republicans running for president.   I still think Mitt Romney has the best chance to beat President Obama, but I also think he’s one of those rich guys who’s embarrassed about being rich.    Rick Santorum is a train wreck.  He blames the media for bringing…
