Catching Up

Okay, I’m in Minneapolis, across the street from the Mall of America. The speech last night in Madison went fine, but not great because a large number of the kids in the audience didn’t want to be there but had to be. You could tell. But I had a grand time telling a University of Wisconsin audience how un-progressive the famed University of Wisconsin progressives really were. Afterwards, we went to State Street Brats. My famed productivity guy came as well. Nice time and my thanks to C-Fact for having me out. Collegians for a Constructive Tomorrow do phenomenal work across the country promoting a free-market, property-rights, oriented approach to environmentalism. And they’re a good bunch of guys.

Anyway, today I have two speeches and a bunch of other stuff to do. Plus, I am of course reeling from the news that I didn’t win the Pulitzer for which I was so deservingly nominated. Looks like I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue.

Yes, yes, yes: I will be discussing the return of BSG when I can. It’s just a really busy week.

Keep Hope Alive.

In Defense of Tulsi

Some years ago, a liberal-minded friend of mine complained during lunch that Fox News was “stealing” his elderly parents. “They should be enjoying retirement,” he said, noting that they live in a modest but comfortable style with attentive children and grandchildren to enjoy. “But instead,” he sighed, ...

Not Less Religion, Just Different Religion

The Pew Poll tells us that society is secularizing -- particularly among the young -- and who can deny it? That is one reason that the free expression of religion is under such intense pressure in the West. But it seems to me that we aren't really becoming less religious. Rather, many are merely changing that ... Read More
