Needless to say, my column the other day about the inanity of Boston Archdiocese spokesman Daniel Avila's claim that gay people exist because (and only because) of the Devil's in utero machinations was not the only piece that led to red-faced Cardinals from here to Rom… Read full post »

You weren't likely around in the years just prior and subsequent to Jesus' murder at Jerusalem. The deal is that for years before and after, under the thumb of the most oppressive Western regime… Read full post »
Several months back I noted here that wildly unpopular Florida Governor, Rick Scott--his positives have hovered for half a year around 29%--proposed, and his equally troglodyte state legislature passed, a bill requiring welfare recipients and applicants to… Read full post »
Last week I posted several pieces about this scourge. While I detailed and lamented the pain and death bullying causes, I offered only two ongoing reasons for hope, the Trevor Project and the new New Jersey anti-bullying… Read full post »
On the way back from being chucked from China all those years back, Tamar and I stopped over in Honolulu and taught for a year. I recall 1987 for a great deal: I recall our debate whether or not to live in leis the rest of… Read full post »
