At this juncture, I simply must take a moment to acknowledge the unswerving loyalty of an unsung group of stalwarts among us. I mean, who would have suspected that nearly three months after the fact, thousands of George Floyd’s closest friends would still be sufficiently enraged over his tragic death at the …

A few weeks ago in this space, I wrote about a couple of recent news stories that involved the topic of sex, but which did not appear to have a clear connection at first blush. Today, I’m going to address two stories that tangentially involve the topic of sex and do have a …

It should go without saying that Americans have been wound pretty tight over the last five months due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

At the risk of focusing on the symptom rather than the disease itself, I’m going to address the need for a reform of police procedures in our nation. There’s little doubt that the reader will be aware of the widespread calls for police reform in the wake of the May …

Over the last few days, we’ve heard a few conservative commentators discussing the lack of pushback we’re seeing from Republican lawmakers and so-called conservative leaders against recent efforts to advance a radical socialist agenda on the part of the political left. It could be said that this push was touched …
