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 Three

Culture is about symbols and show cultural analysis is symbolic analysis. What we are going to do today is analyze a few of the most important symbols underlying American culture. In terms of what they are, what they mean now, and what they meant in the past. Given that, analyzing just one simple symbol can... 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 →

I don’t recall seeing the movie growing up, but I do remember watching the TV series. It was one of my mother’s favorite TV shows. It was about... Continue Reading →

The Madness Of King Donald Part Four

I was hoping, perhaps foolishly, that I would not feel the need to continue this series. Foolish me! After all, King Donald will probably be around for at least three more years. There is no way he could go that long without doing something really crazy or really stupid or both. We all thought his... Continue Reading →

A Voice Crying in The Wilderness

I did the original draft of this post close to two weeks ago, but decided to hold off posting it for reasons that will become clear as we go through the new version below. I want to dedicate this post to those former high school classmates who were on my Facebook “friends” list with whom... Continue Reading →
