Freedom!  Charlie Craig and Dave Mullins can bake their own cake and have their own blasphemous (sodomitic) wedding?  That, in itself, given our historic Christian jurisprudence, would be some wild liberty gone perverse in the Land of the Free!  But that wasn’t even the issue.  It was much worse.

L-G-B-T-Q-B-M-O-U-S-E! . . .  “Mickey Mouse, Mickey Mouse forever let us hold our banner high!” Get the beat there, you folks who watched that weekly show long ago.   You gotta hold that second “B” for a few counts.  […]

Ode to Wrestling in Wilmington

Posted on 31 March, 2017 (Amended on 30 May 2017) 4 March, 2011 Wrestling season comes to a close. My last high school wrestler has finished his course.  Both my sons have gotten from the sport what I had hoped they would get.  The sport is a wonderful means of character development.

Let the Trump Sound Forth

In the same Journal issue the “Our View” editorial, “Trump: A […]

An Open Letter to Senator Carey:

29 November, 2005  I read your essay on stem cell research in the Wilmington Journal today.  I was happy to see that your vote was consistent with the religious proposition that innocent human life is worthy of protection; I was sorry to read, however, that you would make your vote dependent upon the people’s will.  […]
