Buy Yourself a Friend

Over the years, along with giving up or sharply reducing my consumption or patronization of Ben and Jerry’s ice-cream, Target, and Starbucks, we stopped our subscription to the Wall Street Journal. In varying degrees, each one of these businesses was advocating or endorsing positions to which we object. However, at the risk of letting you...

Power All the Way to the End

Have you ever found that once you’re in the midst of a project, you lose some of the enthusiasm and excitement that motivated you at its beginning?

Does a Broken Heart Lead to a Great Marriage?

Back in 2006, Arthur C. Brooks, an economist who focuses on the intersection of economics, culture, and politics, wrote a book based on the results of studies he conducted. Today, in 2024, what he did sounds outrageously courageous. When the results of the study did not align with what he expected (and hoped) to find,...

Horatio Bunce – American Hero

If I asked you to name ten American heroes, George Washington would probably make the list. If you thought in terms of more modern history, perhaps you might add names such as Marcus Luttrell, the Navy SEAL who told his harrowing tale in his book, Lone Survivor.

Why Are the Shrinks Jewish?

I enjoyed watching a five-floor building being constructed nearby. I enjoyed the sound as workmen started up the giant diesel engines in their bulldozers promptly at 7am every morning.

Unintended consequences invariably result, often giving truth to the phrase that the road to hell is paved with good intentions. (Of course, sometimes the crusaders’ dictatorial intentions are not good from the...
