Aid to Pakistan

“Some of my best friends are ___________ (fill in the blank)”.  Usually when I hear that phrase, it is spoken with “Jews”, or “Black” filling in the blank.  The speaker is trying to convince himself that he is not a racist or bigot.  Lately, I have found myself debating on Facebook with a number of […]

Guns and More Guns

Yesterday we heard of yet another deranged person having a gun and deciding to kill some innocent people. In this case there was a house fire.
