October 2020

The Elections, the Virus, and the Violence--the three big issues (so far) in this unusual year--have taken up a lot of time and ink. I focused on each one in recent months, and, after re-reading those earlier posts, I don't have much to add. Here are those links: Term...

A Warning

This post is a warning which we should take seriously. George Floyd died on May 25th in Minneapolis. In the ensuing three months we have witnessed demonstrations, peaceful protests, violent riots, the destruction of urban centers, the rise of Black Lives Matter,...

Term Limit Trumps The Mob

Term Limit Trumps The Mob

As readers of this space know, I agonized over the 2016 election as a gamble between a largely unknown but troubling personality vs. policies which I believed would harm our country. I took the gamble on Trump’s personality, largely persuaded by my beliefs on abortion...

Please Give Us Real and True
