On the sweetness of Mormon life. (more…)
The present is a province of the past.
I regret everything pathetic in the present world.

Two detective novels I read recently unexpectedly had passages on being in love. (more…)
Here’s an interesting argument against religious freedom. I remain a strong supporter of religious freedom, naturally, but its worthwhile to examine good arguments against your verities from time to time.
If you look at it right, though, the argument is really more an argument for the separation of school and state than it is an argument against religious freedom. Any comprehensive system of education is an establishment of some belief system.
It is the policy of the Junior Ganymede Subcommittee for Internet Tomfoolery that Penn State University not be permitted to demand permission for links to it from the Jr. Ganymede without official written permission from the Junior Ganymede’s Vice President for Stonewalling and Incommunication, Mr. Mogollon Monster.
Fancy pens, green soda, jump ropes, turkey thermometers, lazy chairs, and cocktail shakers will embiggen your brain.
“Embiggen.” You keep using that word. I don’t think that word means what you think it means.
In fact, I don’t think that word is actually a word.
It’s Adam’s theme, and he does it well. But I hope you all will indulge me in a little sweetness of my own. (more…)
While I have other less visible ways of bearing the Cross of Christ than wearing a crucifix, it is profoundly disturbing to see a major Western government declare that Christians have no right to wear a cross or crucifix at work.

The Government’s refusal to say that Christians have a right to display the symbol of their faith at work emerged after its plans to legalise same-sex marriages were attacked by the leaders of the Roman Catholic Church in Britain.
I read an interesting story about an alleged mob and CIA connection to the JFK assassination. It’s in the book “Double Cross: The Explosive, Inside Story of the Mobster Who Controlled America”, ISBN 1602397783, authored by Chuck Giancana (brother to mob boss Sam Giancana) and Chuck’s son Samuel. In the past, the book was on sale as a Kindle edition for only $.99, but the Kindle edition is now $10.99. Hardcover and paperback copies can be had for $.01 plus $3.99 shipping/handling.
In essence, it was a mob hit. Oswald was the patsy. Same deal with RFK, a mob hit and Sirhan was the patsy. Motivations are clearly spelled out.
The real interesting part of the story is that it essentially ties up all the loose ends or mysteries concerning those two deaths, and Marilyn Monroe’s.
AKA Polar Bear Hunting. It sounds more like an urban legend than real life. My reality filters will need recalibration.
