    Rob Long: Despite being childless — as well as spouseless — I was asked to contribute to The Dadly Virtuesanother great edition of the “Virtues” series from Templeton Press.

    Being childless and spouseless is no reason not to be able to comment on the subject.  I’ve never gone skydiving, but I feel perfectly qualified to comment on the subject: “Jump out of a perfectly good airplane with a parachute that could fail?  You idiot!

    Larry Miller would be a great podcast guest. I had no idea he was part of the “Virtues” gang until he mentioned it on his own show.

    I bet it’s better than my book,”Daddy drinks because you cry”.

    It was a terrific event. I was expecting a lot, given the ‘cast’, and the event easily surpassed my expectations.

    I know it wasn’t a Ricochet event, but I remember looking at the panel realizing that two of three opiners from two of my favorite podcasts were there. Which reminds me…

    I’ve been a Ricochet member since the beginning, and even though I seldom post, I find the paltry fee easily worthwhile if only to help ensure that our community survive (better yet thrive.) Just knowing that I can have a reasonable conversation with decent folk helps me keep my sanity in my daily journey.

    If you feel similarly and haven’t yet joined, please do consider. Unless it causes you to miss a monthly latte (remember that pitch?) you won’t regret it.

    DocJay:I bet it’s better than my book,”Daddy drinks because you cry”.

    The sequel to that is another powerful children’s book: The Divorce Was Your Fault.

    Or for lighter children’s fare, try Curious George and the Electric Fence.

    The event was a hoot. GLDIII’s commentary can be found at the end of this

    Tucker Carlson could be my twin. Minus the tobacco of course.

    I paste my criticism from that thread because I really would like to encourage people to watch Tucker’s speech.

    I thought that Carlson’s talk was one of the better talks I’ve ever seen at an event like this, and I’ve been to quite a lot of those events. He was intense, interesting, vulnerable, and funny, and had a powerful, important, and true moral message that was strongly supported by his story. That’s basically everything you could want from a speaker.  I’d highly recommend that people watched his piece, which starts at 50 minutes.
