Isn’t interesting how those who would deign to feel it a matter of conscience and duty to legislate personal matters like gay marriage, contraception, abortion and the like on behalf of everyone else, suddenly have a dramatic change of heart when it affects them personally. Case in point, Republican Senator Rob Portman has long been . . .
As expected, I received a lot of responses to the blog I posted prior to Oprah’s PR marathon ‘rehab interview’ with Lance Armstrong. My thanks to you if you were one who bothered to write. The comments split roughly 50/50. They were either of the “Bravo for saying what you did,” variety or “Shame on . . .
I could care less that Lance Armstrong took drugs to enhance his performance. What I do find odious about him, as well as interesting from the broader perspective, is the extraordinary lengths he went to win all his races, destroying loads of people in the process.

But apparently one Todd Aikin, Representative from Missouri said something outrageous and stupid about rape that, in turn, inflamed the debate on abortion, so I thought it might be appropriate to say something here about . . .
My heart goes out to the families and survivors of the Colorado massacre. Their grief and anger will surely be made all the worse for that killing spree seeming utterly senseless and without any apparent motive. Death for a cause, even if it is an unworthy one, is almost bearable, but coming to terms with . . .
Games are supposed to be fun, right? Video game designers know a thing or two about how kids like to have fun. Many years ago they figured out that killing people with heavy duty weaponry is what kids love to do, hour after hour, year after year on screen.
