Honest question: Is there anything you can’t say about white people?

A lecture at Yale University claims white people are psychopaths and demented, violent predators, fantasizes about shooting them in the head, and concludes that no good white people exist on the planet.  Yes, that Yale University.  It gets better:  The speaker also believes white people don’t eat bread.  What could possibly explain this madness? “This… Continue reading Honest question: Is there anything you can’t say about white people?

Springsteen’s Ghosts: Living proof that a truly great rock song can be written in any era by an artist of any age

To my knowledge, there aren’t many arena rock anthems about dead musicians haunting the singer, but somehow Springsteen manages to pull it off by blending the old and the new, combining old things in new ways in classic form.  Who says an artist can’t produce some of their best work at 70 years old? It’s… Continue reading Springsteen’s Ghosts: Living proof that a truly great rock song can be written in any era by an artist of any age

Michelle Obama fears the DMV and other wackiness in the world of the woke

The former First Lady can’t handle the grocery story, either.  In Britain, four year old girls can’t be tomboys any longer, nor can Saturday Night Live joke about much of anything.  Don’t worry though, the army and the CIA are going woke as we speak, even as a new study indicates wokeness is a road… Continue reading Michelle Obama fears the DMV and other wackiness in the world of the woke

Meeting Across the River: Bruce Springsteen’s lyrical genius in one understated song

Sometimes, less is more and the penultimate track from Born to Run is certainly one of those times.  In just twenty eight lines lacking a chorus or any musical bombast, Springsteen spins a tale of a down on his luck wannabe gangster embarking on an unknown caper, told as a conversation between an unnamed narrator… Continue reading Meeting Across the River: Bruce Springsteen’s lyrical genius in one understated song

The Sopranos final episode is a complete cop out as seven seasons culminate in a cheap trick

The best show in television history ends with an odd whimper rather than following through on the momentum of the series and making Tony pay for his many crimes, lapses in judgment, and other mistakes.  Instead, he pulls a rabbit out of his hat at his weakest and David Chase tries the same on the… Continue reading The Sopranos final episode is a complete cop out as seven seasons culminate in a cheap trick

The wildest and weirdest things this week in the world of the woke

Nancy Pelosi thanks George Floyd, a leading professor wants to convict America, Netflix doubles down on hateful content, LeBron James wants to hold a hero cop accountable, news organizations lie about the hero cop, top high schools lie to parents in the name of social justice, and a Congresswoman claims climate change is caused by a… Continue reading The wildest and weirdest things this week in the world of the woke

Cancel Barack Obama, Alexander Hamilton, again, biological sex, sheet music, Ken Burns, and the entire state of Georgia?

The woke continue to march, labelling formerly beloved leaders as “oppressors,” rewriting the history of a Founding Father, claiming biological sex is problematic, launching a war on sheet music and Ken Burns, and of course the entire state of Georgia.  It’s been a busy couple of weeks in the world of the woke! Just when… Continue reading Cancel Barack Obama, Alexander Hamilton, again, biological sex, sheet music, Ken Burns, and the entire state of Georgia?

Emily Ratajkowski: A single article in Vogue encapsulates the many confusions, or should I say insanities, of our elites

There’s nothing worse than a white man sleeping, we can’t bring more white men into the world, and we should all choose our genders at age 18.  Oh, and women comparing themselves to other women is now misogyny.  It’s as if some woke supercomputer wrote this tripe... Rarely does one article, written by a supermodel… Continue reading Emily Ratajkowski: A single article in Vogue encapsulates the many confusions, or should I say insanities, of our elites

Anti-racism: What if I’ve done the work and still disagree?

A few honest, good faith thoughts on the root cause of racial disparities and the potential room for disagreement in a world increasingly polarized on topics of race and equity.  Where do we go from here? As far as the average person goes, I consider myself pretty well read and well informed.  I’ve studied the… Continue reading Anti-racism: What if I’ve done the work and still disagree?

Unprovable accusations: Whatever happened to basic fairness and objectivity?

From Buckingham Palace to The Bachelor, claims of rampant institutional racism abound with no means to verify or resolve them and little ability to mount a defense.  Imagine, for a moment, if we treated real crimes this way... Buckingham Palace is a hotbed of racism.  The Bachelor and Bachelorette exploit rather than protect people of… Continue reading Unprovable accusations: Whatever happened to basic fairness and objectivity?
