Letters to My Granddaughter, No. 31

By | October 22, 2023

[October 22, 2023]  It didn’t look like much.  It was old, with fading paint, rusty rims, worn-out seats, a cracked passenger window, missing window handles, and terrible gas mileage.  Shortly after starting High School as a sophomore, I finished my Driver’s Education and obtained my Texas Driver’s License.  A friendly neighbor sold me his old car, a 1953,… Read More »

Camel Jumping: Who Knew

By | October 20, 2023

[October 20, 2023]  Savage manliness?  Perhaps not.  Camel jumping in Yemen is more of an oddity than a “savage manly” sport … although there are some professional jumpers from the Azraniq tribe who would disagree.  The sport does require considerable strength and agility.  There is some opportunity to get hurt by a fall or the camel kicking the… Read More »

It’s Time to Destroy the Palestinian Culture of Terrorism

By | October 17, 2023

[October 17, 2023]  When faced with an invader that propagates the atrocities we have seen in the recent Hamas incursion into Israel, the only solution is to utterly destroy their culture.  That means a massive and overwhelming force that exacts a brutal retribution upon them until they surrender unconditionally.  Ultimately, that means destroying the Palestinian culture of terrorism.… Read More »

By | October 14, 2023

[October 14, 2023]  I’ve had doubts about NYC Mayor Eric Adams, particularly his pandering to special interest groups and missed opportunities.  But, I missed his Sunday, October 10th rally, where he made it clear that New York stands with Israel.  His remarks were made the day after the Hamas terror attacks on Israel.  He says that he not… Read More »

Letters to My Granddaughter, No. 28

By | October 11, 2023

[October 11, 2023]  The sun burned our skin, and the humidity made us feel like we were suffocating.  I remember the relentless sun, incessant bugs, circling buzzards (lots of buzzards), people dragging their kids about, and some adults dressed up in old-fashioned military uniforms.  At the time, I wondered why my Dad had taken this family trip, about… Read More »

White People on a Hike

By | October 9, 2023

[October 9, 2023]  Humor is an art form.  Art comes in many forms: painting, sculpture, literature, architecture, cinema, theater, music, and video/humor.  One of my favorite commentators on the web is Amala Ekpunobi who alerted me to a great piece of comedic stereotyping, title White People on a Hike.  I loved it and laughed’ nearly spitting my morning… Read More »
