  I have many conservative friends, and, prudently, when in their presence I avoid the usual dangerous topics when I can: religion, politics, history, taxes, etc. But every now and then a polemic discussion rears its inevitable head, and I can't fight back the urge to inject my subversive,...

Red for grief and Green for Joy With loss so much a part of the human condition, it should be no surprise that recognition of the pain and joy in life are woven into the symbols of our holiday traditions. For billions of people around the world, the Christmas season is a period of joy in...

The baboon exhibit at the suburban zoo near our home consists of a large mound of rocks surrounded by a mix of trees both dead and alive. The trees are assembled at angles so that the baboons can run and climb their lengths for a better view of their surroundings.  Being a social crew, the...

I always like to blog when the firestorm of a topic is at "Picking through the still hot smoldering ashes" phase. Such is the case of the entire Birth Control Rush Limbaugh/Sandra Fluke "I'm going to call a woman a slut and prostitute and ask her to put up sex tapes while wondering how many birth...

That Barack Obama invoked Gandhi’s name reveals delicious irony as it posits morality with “unlimited sex”, in Rush Limbaugh’s immortal words. I’d like to draw your attention not to the moral versus the amoral, but to the two moral paradigms here. While Limbaugh can be taken to the laundry...
