Top ten lists are, of course, silly things. A year or two from now, I may look at films on this list and realize I haven’t given them another thought. There may films I haven’t seen from this year that will become favorites, or films I saw, like Zootopia or Kubo and the Two Strings, […]

Does anyone have experience writing original articles for Wikipedia? If so, I have a fun and interesting project to bring to your attention that should take no more than a few hours. I can also provide initial references/documents. As it is for Wiki, there can be no payment involved and we intend to abide by […]

I’m not a NYR guy. They never appealed to me, seemed to whiff “fadish” on the sniff check, and the prosecution of my resolutions is a life’s work, not an annual dalliance. For those who do hew to the NYR paradigm, let me offer a piece of advice (It’s not from me; I”m not that […]

  This article is in response to what is more or less a Rothbardian Critique, that is now on the main feed, of America from the 19th to the 20th century. If I were to (as I believe) accurately synthesize the article’s message it is that America has become an “empire” due to interventionism. I […]

I’m avoiding the word “resolutions”–those sound wishy-washy and would be lucky to last a week. A couple of years ago, I set some goals, having just read Attack Your Day Before It Attacks You. This serious book left an impression and convinced me that I needed long-term and short-term goals. I had too many goals, and monthly […]

My son spent Christmas with us; he works as a manager with a certain northeastern grocery store chain that has a pretty devoted following. His store is located in the suburbs of Washington DC, from which I fled in 2015 to relocate to the sanity of the Midwest. The day after Christmas, we were at […]

If President Trump really changes things in the world, we hopefully will see various savage dictators and terrorist leaders get their Ceaușescu moments. Care to make any predictions as to who will go first? Or care to predict they all will thrive? More

Promoted from the Ricochet Member Feed by Editors Created with Sketch. A Year of Reading

 

The slow-news time betwixt Christmas and New Year’s Day was created by media conglomerates to publish thousands of “Best Of” lists. I stink at creating them since I’ve always had a years-long backlog of music, movies, and books that I haven’t quite gotten around to. To remedy this, for books at least, a few of years ago I decided to read at least one book a month. Granted, that’s far below the number consumed by my bookworm friends, but gimme a break — my job consists of reading the internet non-stop and my old eyes get tired.

I’ve decided to share my booklist with you, the highly literate Ricochet member. Here’s what I read in 2016, in order:

In reviewing how Ricochet.com did in 2016, I noticed a drop in traffic, so I thought I would expand the reader base for 2017 and open the site to a new audience: woodworking. Due to present limited choices, I categorized it as “Polls” (like wood poles) because wood workers don’t spell that well anyway. For […]

Luke 16:1-9 The Parable of the Clever Steward 16 Jesus also said to the disciples, “There was a rich man who was informed of accusations that his manager was wasting his assets. 2 So he called the manager in and said to him, ‘What is this I hear about you?

Exhausted from breaking up fights all over the Trump Hotel Washington gym, I watched gratefully as lobbyists, cheerleaders, and fans finally filtered out.

There was only one serious injury. D’s Head Coach HRC had retrieved the ashtray she threw at William Rodham Clinton, and on her second try, beaned him good. The wound in his hairline bled profusely, causing the former president to schedule a cosmetic surgery haircut at Washington National.
