Our Decline

Every now and then you encounter a story that is more than sad or depressing – its a punch to the gut.  This is one of them:

When Things Change

Salena Zito’s latest Rust Belt portrait, in this case of the host’s home territory, is quite poignant. It describes the day the steel plants started closing and the aftermath:

Finding Freedom

So Friday morning I open my devotional email and it starts this way:

The Hardest Thing

For some reason it is very easy to call people names:

How We See Things

Well, a new iPhone is coming and people apparently have nothing better to do with their lives than wait for it.  At first I thought it was an expression of youthful silliness, like when I lined up, as a very young man, overnight for concert tickets. Show More Summary

Remembering 9-11

There are days in this life one does not forget.  Some personal (e.g. a wedding day) and some of communal scope (e.g. man walks on the moon) those days are burned into memory uniquely and brightly.  Of course, soon new generations come along that do not share the memory and it becomes merely an event noted in a photo album or a text book.

Senator Tom Cotton On The End Of DACA And Beginning Of Congress’ Work

Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton joined me this morning to discuss DACA’s path to vanishing (as it ought to as it is unconstitutional) and its necessary replacement legislation, which will include but not be limited to DACA:

Talking With Henry Winkler About Politics Past and Present (And Hank Zipzer)

I sat down with Henry Winkler last week for 40 minutes of political and media/culture chat.  MSNBC aired the tightly edited 11 minute segment Saturday, but the entire conversation was fascinating to me and I hope you:

The Cost of Homelessness

Well, it has been a tense weekend of wildfire in this neck of the woods.  But it rained last night, is overcast this morning, temperatures are way down and it looks like the fire is well on the way to under control.  While this disaster...Show More Summary
