“The instant fish accept that they will never have arms, they grow fins.” That’s the wisdom with which Mark Nepo begins his thought for today in The Book of Awakening. And, it is a thought that captures my imagination. It is true, isn’t it, that you and I cannot become until we accept what we...

    The Atlantic, April 2013   I'm a little late with this post, but in this day of the personality cult, we feel obliged to know, not just about issues, but about the people who make the issues. As much as I dislike this, The Atlantic has done us a favor by giving us...

This is an exclusive Faux News Network report. The Republican Party has hit a wall.  With Cain gone, Perry getting ignored and Bachman missing, the fun has gone out of reading about the candidates or watching them on TV.  Gingrich and Romney are boring.  Donald Trump recognized the...

It's human nature. We mostly want what we can't have. Grass is greener. The romantic lure of the unattainable. Knowledge that high school girls have long since weaponized. Nothing entices a hormonally imbalanced freshman like flouncing down a crowded hall laughing through a gaggle of friends...
