On the 2018 election results

On the invading hordes
I went to a wedding last night of two DACA immigrants, one from Mexico, the other from El Salvador.  I was attending for the bride, the Mexican.  I have known her since she was a young teenager.  Her mother is the sister of a family member of mine, by marri...

On going home again
Can you go home again? is such a cliche I am reluctant to admit that I am pondering it. But, it is a difficult notion to avoid when I am in Dallas, where I was born and raised. Ontogeny indeed follows phylogeny and I find myself conflicted. I recognize that...

On the Truth setting you free
I have been relatively quiet over the summer as the barrage of Trump news continues to come.  It seemed to me as if there was nothing to be said that had not been said somewhere by someone.  Since I was weary of hearing it, I didn't want to add to it all my...

On challenge coins.
Challenge coins are pocket medallions which are employed by groups to verify membership.  Various groups take them more or less seriously than others, and the rank of the coin in military contexts corresponds with the rank of the person who gave it to you. ...

On Jordan Peterson and 12 Rules for Life
This book has been misunderstood.  I may misunderstand it.  It will likely be misunderstood in the future.  It is demanding of the reader.  Professor Peterson is verbose, in love with his insights and impressed with his scholarship.  In some sense he is und...
