Hard Of Hearings
I can’t say I’ve watched the Senate hearings on Trump’s cabinet picks wall-to-wall, but I’ve heard enough to know that what’s going on is the art of not answering the question. It’s fairly easy. It goes like this: when someone asks you a question, you reframe it to suit your agenda. Politicians do this all the time. Senator: “Do you support the idea of guns in school? Cabinet Pick: “What you mean is, do I support self-defense against grizzly bears lurking around the hallwa

Big Top Hits Bottom
I have to admit that I’m not a big fan of the traditional circus like Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey. When I was a little kid around five years old, my mother took me to the Shrine Circus at the Shrine Auditorium in Ft. Wayne, Ind. I was scared to death of the clowns and loud firecrackers.

Back To Work
The holidays are over, but Jesus is still fresh in my mind. I can’t quite get back to the secular life and yet, I’m not hopping on the ark either. I feel like I’m back where I was before the election last year, before Trump and Hillary, before I chose sides. For most of my life, I’ve looked at the political landscape and wondered who are these people? It’s as if I’m an alien from another planet at a tennis match watching the Republicans and the Democrats charge, counter-cha
