The Culture of Violence Part Four

Writing this final installment on my cultural violence series has been very difficult. I know what I want to say in a rather amorphous way, but finding the words to explain my point of this whole series has been much like a difficult birth. When my wife Elizabeth was pregnant with our daughter, and she... Continue Reading →

The Culture of Violence Part Two

I am sure some of you who read the first installment think I rambled a bit. Maybe a dead. Chalk it up to writer’s prerogative, if you wish. Hopefully, by the time I get done with this particular topic, the ramblings may make more sense and seem more appropriate. Anyway, let’s get to the point.... Continue Reading →

The Culture Of Violence Part One

Piano Man

I love all genres of music, but my favorite is rock ‘n roll. I think I was either in sixth grade or seventh grade when I first started listening to rock ‘n roll. That was around 1960, so I’ve been a rock ‘n roll fan for almost 60 years. In those 60 years rock ‘n... Continue Reading →

In between I listen to Linda Ronstadt doing Long Long Time. I finally got around to watching a video from the title track of an album I’ve... Continue Reading →

The Passing of Stephen Hawking

Stephen Hawking, perhaps the greatest scientific mind since Albert Einstein, passed away this morning (March 14) at the age of 76. Someone living to be 76 is not all that extraordinary. Stephen Hawking living to be 76 is extremely extraordinary! You see, Hawking suffered from ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) for just about all of his... Continue Reading →

My Lizzie

A personal note: For those of you who are not on my facebook friends list, my wife Elizabeth (my Lizzie) was admitted to the Baxter Regional Medical Center Saturday evening. It seems she has a small rupture in her colon. She is being treated with antibiotics in the hope of avoiding surgery. Surgery would involve... Continue Reading →
