Those statues are about marking territory, not preserving history

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 13:21:27 +0000

The Internet has suddenly become full of self-styled statue enthusiasts and historical preservationists. Their specific focus of interest are statues in the public square glorifying Confederates who took up arms against the United States. The flurry of slippery slope, whatabout, and bothsides arguments is almost blinding in its intensity. They conjure up dire images of […]

Antifa is a ten foot tall beastman who showers in vodka and feeds his baby shrimp scampi.

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 20:21:02 +0000

I’ve been hearing a lot about “Antifa” lately. Well, let me tell you about Antifa. Antifa is a ten-foot-tall, two-ton son of a bitch who could eat a hammer and take a shotgun blast standing! Did I ever tell you about the time I went horseback riding with Antifa, but there weren’t any horses around? […]

Both Sides

Sun, 13 Aug 2017 15:22:03 +0000

A lot of people are spilling ink on the violence in Charlottesville where white supremacists gathered to “Unite the Right,” ostensibly in protest of the removal of Confederate statues. I’m not sure I can do much better, but I feel like I ought to post something here anyway.  Those who feel some affinity for the […]

Driving slowly in the left lane makes you a bad person and you should feel bad about yourself

Wed, 02 Aug 2017 12:52:37 +0000

I probably went too far with that headline, but still, you should use the left lane for passing then get back in the right lane. A friend passed along a Vox video on the subject. Hanging out in the left lane causes congestion and causes more accidents than speeders do. In 2015, the Indiana General […]

Sometimes Being “Right” is Beside the Point: Thoughts About Religious Certainty

Sun, 30 Jul 2017 12:37:38 +0000

  I had a good exchange on Facebook with Eric Schansberg. I tend to disagree with him more than I agree with him, but this sort of exchange was a reminder to keep talking with people with different world views — particularly those who are smart, friendly, and of good-will. (I frequently get people commenting […]

McCain casts deciding vote against McConnell’s last-minute, back-of-the-napkin healthcare repeal

Fri, 28 Jul 2017 11:27:52 +0000

So, Sen. John McCain never should have cast the vote to proceed with the House’s healthcare repeal bill. It was passed under a make-shift process with only the most cursory of committee hearings. And it was not a policy recommended by anyone of substance in the healthcare community. But, credit where it is due, he […]

The Gentry is Frivolous

Sun, 16 Jul 2017 13:23:05 +0000

Abdul Hakim-Shabazz (the man, the myth, the legend) has a column entitled “The Revolution has been Gentrified.” He reports that the protest of the police action shooting of Aaron Bailey by two IMPD officers was much more heavily attended by white people than black people. The black folks were, he suggests, at Black Expo. I’m not […]

State Impact on High School Career and Technical Training

Sat, 01 Jul 2017 14:18:28 +0000

Peter Balonon-Rosen, writing for State Impact Indiana has a good article on career and technical training initiatives in Indiana schools: A new state law could allow job training programs to replace other high school graduation requirements. The law requires the State Board of Education to develop new pathways to high school completion. It comes just as […]

Italy Trip – Part VI: Back to Rome and on to Berlin

Fri, 23 Jun 2017 00:29:14 +0000

Day 7: Back to Rome, Pantheon, and Capitoline Museum After three nights in Florence, it was time to return to Rome where we would spend another night before catching a plane out of Italy. We started the day with breakfast at the same cafe on the Duomo plaza. I’m a big fan of a simple […]

Class War By Proxy

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 13:31:51 +0000

One of my favorite news sites is, a comedy site. I don’t know if it’s the old thing about the jester being able to speak truth to power or the lack of a particular axe to grind that makes me find it more informative than a lot of straight news and commentary places. A […]
