Another Year of My Blog Is Erased
You will note that this is my first blog post since Dec. 31, 2014, although that is far from true. I wrote well over 1,000 posts in the time since then, but every post from Jan. 1, 2015 until yesterday is gone and there simply is no way to retrieve them. Th...

LaPierre's New Effort at Selling Guns
La Pierre is not universally loved. If you have been suffering the illusion that Roanoke native Wayne La Pierre and his National Rifle Association (NRA) are here to protect the "rights" of gun owners, then you might reconsider, given his latest pronouncemen...

Navigating the Painters and the Art
This is my house encased in plastic, paint buckets hovering. Note the green swatch on the wall. Yuck. The painters finally showed up yesterday and I learned first-hand just how to live in a house encased in plastic and denim tarps. It ain't my preference. W...
