Irreplaceable

Date: 05/05/2014

" Irreplaceable " is indefensible. My parents taught me that you automatically lose an argument if you (1) fail to state the other side's views in a manner they approve or (2) fail to attribute to the other side the same good intentions you assume for your own. Focus on the Family's faux documentary "Irreplaceable" fails on both grounds.  It probably also violates one of the Commandments as well, ...

Date: 04/01/2014

April Fool's Day seems a fitting day to review what happened last week, when, within just two days of announcing its decision to hire gays in recognized same-sex marriages, World Vision reversed its decision.

coffee and chocolate and cream and...multiculturalism?

Date: 01/06/2014

I'm drinking what America should BE right now (bear with me: it's metaphor time). Coffee from Africa, rich & fragrant. Chocolate from South America. Cinnamon from Saigon, cayenne pepper from who knows where, and milk from an organic farm coop of many American states. In a bee mug (from my BFF!). With a silver spoon from my mother's pattern. Well, maybe the silver spoon is a bit much. :) ...
