I’ll be glad to see Tuesday come and go, if for no other reason than that we’ll finally see an end to all of the political ads on television, where every candidate tells us how terrible their opponents are, in wildly exaggerated claims, but never seem to get around to telling us what makes them […]

In the latest bit of lunacy to hit the news, a federal judge blocked yesterday’s execution of convicted killer Jeffrey Landrigan, because the State of Arizona had obtained one of the three drugs used in the execution process from Great Britain. It seems that there is a shortage of the drug sodium thiopental, and the […]

From every published report, 10 year old Zahra Clare Baker lived a life of hell, her body ravaged by cancer that led to the amputation of her leg and the loss of her hearing, and suffering abuse at the hands of her stepmother. Now the poor child is missing from her North Carolina home, and […]

The Supreme Court is currently considering the case of Albert Snyder, who won a multi-million dollar judgment against the radical Westboro Baptist Church after the church’s congregation picketed at the funeral of his son,  Marine Lance Corporal Matthew Snyder, who was killed in action in Iraq.

Here I go again, whacking the hornets nest, as my friend Greg says. But sometimes I just can’t resist. The other day, I mentioned in my RV blog that Dish Network and the Fox Network dweebs have gotten into a pissing match over rates, the result being that we have lost the FX channel, which […]

A few days ago, we toured the Holocaust Museum in Washington D.C., and even though I have been aware of the terrible events of that time almost all of my life, nothing ever brought home the sheer immensity of the horror like that visit did. As we saw one exhibit after another of the depravity […]
