Tom Petty deservedly honored this past weekend at the MusiCares pre-Grammys weekend show. Millions-mile-long list of acts paying tribute to a man who’s carved out an even millions-more-miles-deep catalog over five decades. As a lifelong fan over all those years, very cool seeing not only a wide variety of genres representin’, but a multi-generational vibe […]
In the latest for Prager University, family psychologist John Rosemond discusses an issue that is crucial for parents wanting to raise happy, well-adjusted kids (and one that is often overlooked in favor of more oft-discussed topics like education, discipline styles, etc.): saying no to them. If conservative parents (and future parents) want to ensure […]
Lunch-time stream-of-conscience’ing …
Dear Democrats, you lost. As Barack Obama noted to John McCain and Republicans still resistant to his 2008 victory, just deal with it. By “deal,” though, that doesn’t mean staging national protests which disrupt your neighbors, your fellow citizens from both sides of the aisle, as they move on with life. […]
I’ve never watched “The Walking Dead,” nor do I plan to, but based on JimmyC’s description and the snippets he provided from Dave Taylor I think Taylor makes the better argument.

OK, maybe I could have chosen some words better and maybe you’re not all, technically wrong, but my hyperbole got you to read this post.
My “Innovation Stagnation” post turned into a debate over the definition of paradigm shift in technology instead of the larger point I tried and failed to make.

Jay Mohr used to think the worst of Joe Paterno, Penn State, and Jerry Sandusky after the alleged scandal broke (there was a scandal, for sure, just not the one you think it was). As the false narrative walls continue to crumble around CNN’s Sara Ganim, ESPiN, and beyond, please take the time to […]
Sure, it may seem difficult to envision Bruce Springsteen and Bryan Adams, two of the 80s biggest working class hero songwriters, worthy of the task of looking out for the best interests of 21st century boys wishing they were girls (or vice versa), but damned if their respective boycotts of North Carolina and Mississippi over […]
