September 20, 2017 9:16 PM0 comments

Probably unintended, but what Hillary Rodham Clinton wrote in her now-best selling memoir What Happened may help trigger a very badly needed new reform movement in mainstream religious institutions.

Hillary Rodham Clinton’s Remarkable Book

September 13, 2017 10:53 PM0 comments

Hillary Rodham Clinton’s new book out this week, What Happened, is an extraordinary work. It does far more than address the specific issues of the 2016 election, and if anything, some reactions to it cast the spotlight not on her, but on what has become of our national political discourse. […]

The Year of the Fatally Absurd

September 6, 2017 8:16 PM0 comments

Never did we consider the world so sane and normal during the two terms of President Obama. Not until recently, when the sheer madness of the Twitter-happy Infant Terrible of the White House since January has spun the nation and much of the world on its head. This is like […]

Keep digging, Mr. Mueller. Keep digging! With all the atmospherics. With the threat of a nuclear war. With the threat of a race war. With all this, the damning evidence that our nation’s president is a pliable and compromised de facto agent of a hostile foreign power remains the most […]
