I'm obsessed with an idea.  I'm obsessed with lots of ideas, but I've been enthralled with this one in particular for over a year now-- in fact, I wrote a bit about its conception in a blog post called " A Break Through " in February of 2015, and I've since...

I Don't Talk Politics
I don't talk politics.  I don't know anything about them.  But do you find it interesting that our nation is split pretty much 50/50 on political issues?  Rather, do you find it interesting that half of our nation identifies with one party and half with ano...

Einstein, Bears, and Mental Health at William and Mary
Sit Einstein (not actual Einstein-- just the proverbial smart person) down in a room with a problem he or she couldn't hope to solve (we know they exist).  Never expose this person to anyone except the people overseeing the experiment, all of whom pretend a...
