By Scott Sullivan Editor Napalm in the Morning My wife or The New York Times? Most guys would consider that a no brainer. The Times has bureaus everywhere. My wife won’t let me in hers because I’ll mess up its content’s chaos. The Times publishes “All the news that’s fit to print.” My wife leaves […]

Life as performance art

By Fr. G. Corwin Stoppel A friend tells me it’s possible to make anything at least incrementally better. Even if it’s not possible to tweak and tinker with something that’s already very good, at least we have let the clutch out of our mind and engaged our brain. The one exception is with the visual […]

Have faith: better days ahead

Publisher
By Mike Wilcox Publisher Forgive me if I appear to be preaching, but I have to get something off my chest. My spouse, child and friends have heard me say 1,000 times, “Life is a series of ups and downs, and those who can roll with the punches will be happy and well-adjusted.” I’m living […]

By Scott Sullivan Editor Starlight by Proxy How many photons have there been in the history of the universe? 4,000,000,-000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000, say astrophysicists.

By Fr. G. Corwin Stoppel When the weather really turned chilly the other day, I finally broke out my Uncle Corwin’s winter coat. It’s heavy wool, thick and warm. Even though he fell off his perch in 1950 and probably had the coat from at least a decade before that,  there’s still plenty of good left in […]

I also was subject of pre-dawn raid

Publisher
By Mike Wilcox Publisher Like many Republicans and Democrats, I was appalled at the way Mueller and the courts decided to arrest former Trump operative Roger Stone.
