I've blogged about this before but obviously didn't get enough of it. What's an aristocrat? The answer is: snobbish. No really, that's one of the definitions of aristocratic, that and socially exclusive. To be aristocratic means that you partake of, or are characteristic of a ruling or privileged...

Sunday mass. Two suicide bombers. 80 Christians killed. The Taliban strikes. Again. My friend B is a devout Christian. She chose her mother's faith; her father is a Muslim, her husband was a Catholic. They travelled to many countries and she has several options, but after his death she was...

This may be one of the best examples of inmates running the asylum I have ever seen. Our government seems almost helpless to enforce any law these days and common sense has completely gone on vacation. I wonder if I fled to Mexico and said “I believe the U.S. Government is going crazy,” could I get...
