  • Gun culture

    The recent mosque shootings in Christchurch, New Zealand, were terrible beyond words and yet, sadly, not at all unfamiliar to Americans. Mass shootings have become all too common here. It’s worth noting that in New Zealand the immediate reaction by… Read More ›

  • If you want to play with others, follow the rules

      The rule should be, quite simply, “No admission to a public school (or to the US) without immunizations.” Period. There’s always home schooling, permissive private schools, or online education for those who can’t or won’t get immunized. The unimmunized… Read More ›

  • Thinning the herd: Reparations

    What do Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Kamala Harris, former San Antonio mayor Julián Castro, and Marianne Williamson have in common? All are Democratic candidates for president in 2020. And all have indicated some support for reparations to the descendants of slaves… Read More ›

  • Holy smoke, Smollett

    Jussie Smollett. I know that name now, but until recently I’d never heard of him. And I’d never watched nor wanted to watch “Empire.” (Still don’t.) But in the last week it’s become impossible not to know the man’s name… Read More ›
