Sunday Music: Bach Cantata BWV 80: “Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott”

Sun, 18 Feb 2018 15:00:25 +0000

It is the first Sunday in Lent. The title of today’s cantata is “Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott” (A Mighty Fortress Is Our God). The cantata was written for Reformation Day, but that won’t fall on a Sunday until 2021, and I can’t wait that long to give you one of Bach’s best-loved cantatas. […]

Thanks to Everyone Who Contributed for Leviticus’s Baby Girl

Sat, 17 Feb 2018 19:12:18 +0000

On February 13, I posted that our longtime commenter Leviticus was lucky enough to experienced the birth of a daughter: Shirley Beatrix M. Commenter Simon Jester had suggested passing around the hat for Shirley, and other commenters told me they would like that. So I did. I told people that they could be anonymous in […]

Happy Blogiversary to Me

Sat, 17 Feb 2018 14:00:53 +0000

Today is a milestone of sorts. This blog began 15 years ago today, on February 17, 2003. I was 34 years old. I turn 50 later this year. My daughter had recently had her third birthday, and my son was four months old. Now my daughter is an adult. She can vote. My son is […]

Who Is Indicted Russian Oligarch Yevgeny Prigozhin, and What Are His Connections to Putin?

Fri, 16 Feb 2018 23:45:58 +0000

One of the key figures indicted by a grand jury in the Russia collusion investigation today is Yevgeny Prigozhin, the so-called “chef to Putin.” Who is this fellow, and what connections does he have to the Russian government, if any? The question is important, because there are no specific allegations in the indictment showing that […]

Facebook Caves to Putin Censorship — With Bonus COLLUSION Connection!

Fri, 16 Feb 2018 18:30:55 +0000

If you don’t have your head up Donald Trump’s rear end, you know that Vladimir Putin, while nominally an elected official, is actually a feared dictator who censors his opposition (and, if he deems it necessary, kills them). What does Putin do when one of his rivals is exposing corruption based on material on a […]

Amid the Terrible Stories of a School Shooting, a Story of a Hero

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 17:15:02 +0000

The tragedy that occurred yesterday at a high school in Parkland, Florida is hard to process. Someone who would shoot and kill high school students is surely the worst humanity has to offer. I won’t speak the shooter’s name. He doesn’t deserve it. But one man’s name deserves to be spoken and remembered: Aaron Feis, […]

School Shooting In Florida Leaves 17 Dead

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 01:35:00 +0000

[guest post by Dana] Horrible: [P]olice say an expelled student returned to campus and opened fire with an assault rifle, killing 17 and wounding 15 more in the worst school shooting in Florida history. Just before dismissal at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, thousands of students puzzled at the sound of a fire […]

Teacher Who Accused American Troops Of Being “The Lowest Of The Low” Refuses To Step Down From City Council

Wed, 14 Feb 2018 20:26:49 +0000

[guest post by Dana] Remember Pico Rivera councilman and high school history teacher Gregory Salcido? He was recently seen on a secretly recorded video being so triggered by a student, who is the son of a combat veteran, wearing a U.S. Marine Corp sweatshirt in his classroom that he berated the student and disparaged the […]

Judging Trump by the Soft Bigotry of Low Expectations

Wed, 14 Feb 2018 17:30:31 +0000

I often hear these days about how conservative Donald Trump is. I’ll grant you that, so far, he’s been more conservative than I expected. Much of that is the flag-waving I-love-a-parade brand of conservatism that doesn’t excite me much, but a sizable chunk is real conservatism: almost (almost) uniformly excellent judges, reduction of regulation, etc. […]

Trump’s Lawyer: Yeah, I Paid $130,000 to Stormy Daniels

Wed, 14 Feb 2018 05:30:42 +0000

Gee, whatever for? She told us there was no affair! Maggie Haberman at the New York Times has the scoop: Michael D. Cohen, President Trump’s longtime personal lawyer, said on Tuesday that he paid $130,000 out of his own pocket to a pornographic-film actress who had once claimed to have had an affair with Mr. […]
