Well, Let Me Say This About That
Think

Once upon a time, a little boy was born into a home with two parents, a mother and a father, in which two strains of both politics and Protestantism resided. The mother was a Democrat and a Methodist; the father was a Republican and a Southern Baptist. And the little…

Breathless, Betrayal & Boycotts

My sense of humor is low this week, but satire is alive and well. Get on your knees. Breathless. It’s a shame that so many other news sources (other than me, of course) have questionable journalistic practices. That liberal giant, the NEW YORK TIMES, ran an anonymously written opinion piece last…

Confessions From My Rabbit Hole

When the New York Times published that anonymous op-ed this week sensationally titled “I am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration,” my movie addled brain went down its usual rabbit hole to those movies with similar screaming titles. Confessions of a Nazi Spy. I Married a Nazi.  That…

Memorial, Messiah & Misogynist

Oftentimes, prayer covers a range of emotions……sadness, sarcasm and schadenfreude…..this is one of those weeks. Memorial. Last week, I exhorted you to remember the loss of Brother McCain and Sister Franklin. This week, with both of their funerals behind us, let us reflect on each of these services. Brother McCain was…

Monkey Business

Were you one of those children that slept with a quantity of stuffed toys?  I certainly was. There was the requisite teddy bear, a circus clown and Barney Rubble, dressed in that fur dress he and Fred Flintstone always wore.  And there was a monkey holding a plastic banana. The…

Maverick, Morality & Mirror

My spiritual fortitude is being tested this week.  Join me in prayer. Maverick.  I’m having to break out my black dress a lot recently.  So many deaths of note.  Now, we’ve lost the maverick himself, Brother John McCain.  Never before have I had such on again/off again feelings about a…

I’m A Peach Mint

You know, I was really planning to follow up last’s week column about Trump’s dog insult with one centered on cats.  And while the Federal Communications Commission’s Equal-time rule only applies to political candidates and its Fairness Doctrine has been dead for years, I thought it might be in the…

Asians, Aretha & Aged

I’m turning my knees in prayer towards the entertainment world this week. Asians.  I keep hearing of a film entitled CRAZY RICH ASIANS.  I must say, this title seems a bit exclusive.  Why limit these people to our Far Eastern ministries?  There are, after all, the wealthy insane across all…

Well, Let Me Say This About That
Dog Day Afternoon

I’m a dog person. My whole family is made up of dog people. I have home movies of me as a toddler with my dachshund , Suzie, and her puppies. Baby Craig is trying desperately, but unsuccessfully, to get her and the six babies into my standard issue little red…

Flying, Firing & Feasting

The crazies are in full bloom and my allergies are killing me. Read on. Flying. I never cease to be amazed at the world around us. Just when I think there’s nothing new under the sun, the Lord allows one of his rogue sheep to escape from the flock and wreak…
