Soft Boys

Even at my advanced age, I know very little about women. As an only child, I had no sisters to compare notes with and both my parents were not only modest but also terminally shy about their bodies for my growing interest. Forget about anyone but an...

They Hate Us

Not since the American Civil War has such boundless hatred been so widespread, especially in our political culture. This new-emerging atmosphere of vitriol reminded me of the maiden season of the one of the many attempts at creating yet another...

The Process

With all the heated talk about America and Socialism, it is surprising to me that Americans may be waking up to the dire realizations that this country has been surreptitiously adopting this disastrous ideology for many generations. It is only now...

The Best of Two Worlds

One of my favorite books is Between Heaven and Mirth, written by Father James Martin, S. J. Though he seems to have strayed from the strait and narrow path of Orthodoxy in the last few years, Heaven addresses something that has been sorely lacking...

The Empty Shelves of American Culture

An Apathy of Faith

There was a poll run on all the major Catholic campuses some years ago on religious ignorance and apathy. Over 75% of the respondents said they did not know anything about apathy nor did they care! While this fictitious poll is just a joke, Catholic...

God’s Waiting Room?

I am at the age that every waiting room I sit in makes me think that this could be God’s Waiting Room. I believe that throughout history most people have believed in a God. And with that necessarily follows certain questions of eschatology…that...

They Doth Protest Too Much

With apologies to the Bard of Avon,  I have been sick to death of players, no matter what sport they may play, protesting what they perceive to be social and political ills. Politicians of all stripes encourage them, but in reality what does a...

My Fair Lady

I offer my sincere apologies to the musical team of Learner & Loewe, who theatrically introduced the idea of taking a poor Cockney flower girl off the London streets and making her into a cultured and sophisticated woman who could easily hobnob...
