Marriage and Love In high school my friend Josh and I once discussed marriage and love. Was true love even real? Do people marry other people for reasons of character or more material considerations? Was anyone even capable of keeping their virginity for marriage? He and I had different answers to these questions. More

“It’s not at all that we have too short a time to live, but that we squander a great deal of it. Life is long, and it is given in sufficient measure to do many great things if we live it well…. we don’t receive a short life, we make it so.” Seneca, On the Brevity of Life

I’m 66 years old. Two hundred years ago I would have been the rarest of rare. Today, while I’m still normally the oldest person in the room, my age is not something of a novelty. Thankfully.

I listen to the weekly “Security Now” podcast and in the latest one, they mentioned the Cloud Act. It seems that it was written in reaction to Microsoft refusing to turn data from a US citizen over to the police that was stored in a server in Ireland. The act provides for police access without […]

We should all be familiar with the microagression that is “mansplaining,” where a man explains something in a “condescending” manner to women. It caused an uproar in such popular publications like Vox, Slate, and The Guardian.

I would like to call attention to a new microagression. It’s called FemSplaining. This phenomenon is when feminists seek to explain something to women with condescension. In this case, why we did or didn’t vote for the accomplished and polished (hold on … my toddler said “poop”) Hillary Clinton.

The title is provocative: The Never Trump Delusion.

And this time the writer can’t be distanced from the title. Because the author is the editor. The editor of National Review and the force behind the well-timed but glancingly effective December 2015 “Against Trump” edition that laid the foundation stones, wittingly or not, for the Never Trump movement amongst many conservative intellectuals. (Personally, I think the “Against Trump” edition was gutsy and helped to provide Rubio his one shot at the end zone, but he fumbled and repeatedly kick the ball in NH when hit by a New Jersey lineman.)

I played quite a bit of hockey. It was, and still is the sport that I love the most. I played well enough that a friend and I were approached after a match and we received offers to play for a semi-pro team. I admire the work ethic in hockey. I call it a working man’s sport. I kept all my teeth, I’ve had to get some stitches, and still managed to get back on the ice to finish out a match. I still have some small scars from being hit across the face with a stick. I’ve thrown some punches, and caught a few. It’s a beautiful sport.

Last Thursday an accountant, Scott Foster lived out a dream and played goalie for the Chicago Blackhawks. He plays in a beer league for a competitive team that features former college and NHL players. Both goaltenders for the Blackhawks were injured and Foster was the standby goaltender. He left the stands to put on the equipment and uniform. He stopped 7 shots, and did not allow a goal in the approximately 15 minutes left in the match.

So we have had open carry for a few years now in Texas. You might be surprised at how long it was that we could not openly carry a handgun (except for black powder). It was, however, legal to openly carry long guns. During the couple of years or so that the issue was being […]

That’d be Norman  Lear, the king of 70’s sitcoms. Look up, if you don’t remember it, his iconic show All in the Family, 1971-79. As Wikipedia puts it,the show revolves around “a working-class bigot”. The lead character’s name became a byword for outmoded prejudices, the kind of “bunk” we were being instructed we should ridicule […]

Promoted from the Ricochet Member Feed by Editors Created with Sketch. Quote of the Day: Happiness Is Inside

 

“Happiness isn’t something that depends on our surroundings. It’s something we make inside ourselves.” — Cor ten Boom (wife of Casper ten Boom and mother of Betsie and Corrie ten Boom quoted in Corrie’s book The Hiding Place.)

For the Group Writing series, I’ve been doing a set of posts about the amazing Ten Booms, a family who worked with the Dutch Underground to protect the Jews around them during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands. Casper, Betsie, and Corrie ten Boom have been honored at the Yad Vashem in Israel and recognized as part of the Righteous Among the Nations for the work they did.

Circa 1985, I was a attending an evangelical Congregation church in Stamford, Ct. At the end of our Good Friday service, all the lights were turned off in the sanctuary. The only light left was a torch carried by our minster. He left the church by the rear and walked outside to the front of […]

This may seem familiar to some. Today is Good Friday, for the majority of people who know anything about Jesus – it is probably the most ironically misnamed day of the year. It records the date of course – the 3rd April 33 A.D. to be very exact (I’m not ever using that PC C.E. […]
