I'm the Chicago writer Neil Steinberg, not the Los Angeles film producer Neil Steinberg, though I've met him and he's a nice guy.

Women and religion, pt. II

Can a 'normal person' become governor?

Being alive is heroism aplenty
     In truth, we are but sentient gnats, crawling around an enormous, churning, steamy globe which, in turn, is itself a mere warm speck hurtling through the black and frozen void of  a generally empty cosmos utterly indifferent to us, we moist splats of l...

Leaves falling like rain
