Rudeness didn’t start three years ago

Civility is the buzzword of the day! Left, right and center! Bring on the guy in the sweater and the purple dinosaur. The tribalism and vitriol are heating up from all sides. A popular refrain these days is that Donald Trump is the cause of it all. Sorry, but rudeness didn’t start three years ago…. Read more »

Did you love your parents?

I don’t want to post this. I keep waiting for a storm of conscientious and brave Republicans to make things right. They haven’t. No one is changing the mind of the person in the oval office. No one but you, that is. And that’s why I’m asking, Did you love your parents? This isn’t aimed… Read more »

Credit due or credit risk?

There is much talk recently about history. Making it and repeating it. Neither man nor media defines such events. The ultimate arbiter of history is time. And, regardless if it is years or ages that pass, that final judgment may all hinge on whether this past week is credit due or credit risk. It’s not… Read more »

Mr. Egg meet Mr. Basket

If you’re like most people, you’ve gambled at some point in your life. Maybe it was in a casino. Could have been in the stock market. Perhaps it was that person you really wanted to ask out on a date. At some point, you’ve put it all out there. Maybe even, on occasion, too much…. Read more »

Since I left Corporate America, I’ve had a nice rebirth in humanity. Less anger, more tolerance. Less impatience, more perspective.

I also have enjoyed a nice golf outing there. But, Alabama has both Nick Saban and SEC foes. So, I’ve had no love… Read more »

What about me?

Any man who is worthy of the title should be asking himself the same question these days: What about me? Harassment in general and sexual harassment in particular are difficult subjects to self-judge. There’s the overt and obvious, of course, such as sticking a tongue down someone’s throat or asking them to “twirl” for you…. Read more »

I can’t…I just can’t…

I promised you endless updates on Halloween, from this new this year to past memories and I’ve done my bit. I promised you no interruptions for political or social commentary and I’ve been true to my word. But I can’t ignore yesterday’s disastrous comments from the man occupying the presidency. I just can’t. I’ll not… Read more »

What is patriotism?

There’s been quite a lot of conversation about this recently, spoken and written with the utter certainty of someone who has an opinion. Although I am never in short supply of an opinion, I am often just short of sounding like a doofus, so I thought I might give this just a bit of research… Read more »
