Red State, Blue State and Le Miz

There was an Op-Ed piece in the NY Times today (Saturday, 2/9/2013) on the fact that soldiers on both sides of the Civil War read Victor Hugo's Les Miserables in the trenches.  What follows is my comment.

Clumsy Me and the Shroud of Turin

Once, while reporting a debate I  participated in some years ago, the New York Law Journal referred to me as the “most avuncular” of the participants. I was a little upset because it looked like a reference to my weight, which wasn’t that bad until I looked the word up.

As some of you may know, I am working on a manuscript the working title of which is “The Coming of the Quantum Christ: The Shroud of Turin and the future of Science and Humanity.” I have just completed the draft of Chapter Seven (:Game Change”) which ends with the Shroud

“Our generation and the two that preceded it have heard little but talk of the conflict between science and faith; indeed it seemed at one moment a foregone conclusion that the former was destined to take the place of the latter. But, as the tension is prolonged, the conflict visibly seems

The best campign video I have ever seen is the following parody from Le Miz. I must admit that I am partial to Le Miz and particularly the First Act finale: One Day More. Judge for your self: http://www.onetermmore.com/video_subtitles.html

  Let me say a at the outset, I am a Rachel Maddow fan, but the other night when discussing Mitt Romney’s missing years at the Olympics and his income form Bain Capital, Inc, she kept asking the question: why was he paid  $100,000 a year by Bain from 1999 to 2002.Read full post »

Oxford is as Oxford Does*

Oxford Don Martin Kemp thinks the Shroud of Turan is a painting from the thirteenth or early fourteenth century. Really?

 I have recently read the original Paul Vignon book on the Shroud of Turin published in 1902 which was reissued in English in 2002. I

Is McCrystal the new MacArthur?

 It is probably the most blatant act of insubordination since Douglas MacArthur tried to hide is own incompetence behind insubordinate attacks on Harry truman during the Korean War. Gen. Stanley McCrystal has bashed his Commander-in-Chief in an interview with Rolling Stone and now has apoligiz… Read full post »

The Internet reported today that a majority of heterosexual males  now support gay rights, something I have instinctively supported since October, 1960. That is when I first confronted the issue of gay rights and why  I have no choice but to support equality for gays. It is directly related… Read full post »

Benedictus Agonistes

By John C. Klotz

 Easter Sunday, April 4, 2010

 Life is a struggle. <FN1> That can be true even if you have obtained your life’s ambition. Take Pope Benedict XVI for example. He is under attack for reportedly covering-up the burgeoning priest-pedophile scandal. His criticsRead full post »

Winter Rules and Lies

 In golf, amateur hackers (such as myself) will often play by winter rules: that means if your ball is lying in a really bad spot you can correct its location to make for an easier shot. The theory is that it’s winter and the course is in bad shape. Of course,… Read full post »

 The God of Probabilities: How voting fraud in Iran demonstrates the existence of God

 Is the title of this piece a jest? Am I kidding? What possible relationship could there be between voting fraud and the issue of God’s existence. Well there is, at least metaphorically;… Read full post »

Obama's initiative in Cairo is more than a political gambit, it is a probably last chance to avoid another Holocaust. The question is whose Holocaust will it be.

The Right Wing extremist emergence as the power in the Israeli government had its genesis in the assassin's bullet which struck down… Read full post »

At least it's not the Bay of Pigs

The question is whether Obama, the sum of all hopes, has been had by the CIA. According to reports aired by Keith Olberman on Countdown, the memos released by the CIA have a certain fishy smell. The agency has been cooking the books on Nancy Pelosi and altering its records.… Read full post »

“Ghetto” is a highly charged word conjuring many images, most of them unpleasant and angry. The word  had its origins in medieval Venice, where Jews were segregated into an area that had been a weapons foundry or “ghetto” and throughout most of history it has retained its… Read full post »

A-Rod's Hip: the wages of sin?

 The big news in Yankeeland, and a few other places in America I guess, is Alex "A-Rod" Rodriguez's hip. He has a torn labrum in his hip and a cyst.

The question is: is A-Rod suffering from the effects of his admitted steroid use through repeated injections of the drugs… Read full post »
