2017 Texas Church Shooting: Presence of Mind?

There are no words that can express the sorrow and despair I feel for those in that small town in Texas and this country as a whole.  Between Charlottesville riots (not a shooting, but still), Las Vegas, the New York

Serialized TV: It’s killing good story.

This article – Serialized Television Has Become a Disease – hit the nail on the head for me.  I have been saying this for a while.  There are some shows that pull it off pretty well, primarily because they are based

Trump is the best thing to happen to feminism

How about that for a tag line!  That’ll get the snowflakes a-fluttering.  I only write the occasional rant because I have a thought and the only way I can completely flesh it out is write it down.  I imagine in

After 8 years, I returned to NJ.  This time, it was with all three of my kids, because they wanted to see daddy’s old stomping ground, as well as visit their cousins in their home town.  It was the first time I visited since my parents moved to SC.  I did not realize how hard it was going to be.  I realized, however, I needed closure from that part of my life.  Did I get it?  I am not sure.  Maybe some.

Realizations after the Orlando Shooting

First and foremost, what happened in Orlando was horrible.  My heart and prayers go out to those affected directly and Orlando as a whole.  I also pray for this country for healing.  This attack has not united us like 9-11

Entitled millennials?

I feel like I just got over the generation differences between my parents (the rural southern 50s) and mine (1980s Gen-X) and now we have this new phenomena called Millennials.  My step-son is one.  I work with another.  I don’t
