Since the beginning of recorded time, humans have been incorrectly interpreting phenomenon in nature as notice of impending doom. Eclipses, earthquakes, tsunamis and other naturally occurring events have been declared by learned people of their time to be signaling the end of time.

  • Socialism is already here
    Saturday, October 5, 2019 9:16 AM
    If I have not made my point by now, I’ll make it again just to be sure: I resent paying for socialists’ feel-good projects.

  • Cryin’ at the editorial desk
    Saturday, September 28, 2019 9:22 AM
    Sir, you and your kindred in the liberal media have brought this on yourselves. You do not present news in a fair and balanced way. The (NYT) editorial page has crept into your so-called news stories, without notice. Your staff has a strong left-leaning political bias and likely is not good at math (see my column last week).

  • Take all numbers from some journalists with a grain of salt
    Sunday, September 22, 2019 10:07 AM
    Time and again, journalists give us numbers that are completely out of line and provided in such ignorance that it is patently obvious they know not what they are talking about. Spoiler alert – this will lead to climate change at the end, so if you want to jump to there, just go ahead.

  • The 2nd Amendment is ‘so 18th century’
    Sunday, September 15, 2019 9:34 AM
    One way to mitigate the risk would be for people on a mass basis to change their hearts so they want to be helpful to their fellow human, not belligerent or non-caring. Unless we have a nationwide, old-fashioned revival, that doesn’t seem likely.

  • Depression and decisions
    Sunday, September 8, 2019 8:18 AM
    The summer solstice has passed, and we are facing six months of ever shorter days. I don’t like short days. I really don’t like fall, for it portends the cold days of winter. Although it is now 52 Septembers since I faced winter in a cold and drafty old farmhouse, those memories have never gone away.

  • Reconciling the divide
    Sunday, September 1, 2019 12:22 PM
    When I think over conversations like the ones I just shared, this is only reinforced for me. I cannot begin to move to a point of reconciliation with the opposite side. For this example, I have just relayed, like many others I see, show a movement, a party, that is determined to obfuscate and falsify the narrative.

  • Why are we so angry?
    Thursday, August 29, 2019 7:40 AM
    From my point of view, however, the biggest source of hostility in speech comes through my phone. You will identify. It is these insane computer voices that ask me endless questions in order to “promptly help me with my issue.”

  • Are some lives more valuable than others?
    Sunday, August 25, 2019 10:33 AM
    In 2017, the National Highway Safety Transportation Administration attributed 9,717 fatalities on U.S. highways to speeding. According to the World Health Organization, this does not put the U.S. in the top 25 countries in the world for traffic deaths due to speeding by any measure (per capita, distance traveled, etc.). Also, in 2017, according to PEW research, there were 14,542 homicides in the U.S. by firearms. This places us 30th in the world. There were 879,000 abortions in the U.S. in 2017, ranking us as the number 10 country in the world for this practice.

  • Taking out the trash
    Thursday, August 15, 2019 10:15 AM
    Monday evening, I called up a friend of mine to talk about a business matter. He was in the midst of taking out the trash at his girlfriend’s house. She lives in the Washington, D.C. suburb of Georgetown. He was grousing about the precision of can placement required by sanitation crews.
