I don’t blog as frequently as I used to, but if you remember the olden days when JohnFN wasn’t busy raising a rambunctious 3-year-old, and wasn’t carrying on post-graduation while covering sports at a mid-metro, then you remember my favorite horse to beat was our current meritocracy, particularly the isolation of the middle class. The [...]
What do you do when the Department of Defense’s Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute offers nine suggestions on how a bystander should nonviolently deal with rapists … and produce an instructional video to accompany it? Well, if you’re Counter Contempt’s David Stein, you mercilessly expose the DoD/DEOMI for the joke they are … and produce [...]

I was going to post some highlights and link to the article (here’s a link, http://www.thedailybeast.com/newsweek/2013/01/28/gun-laws-and-the-fools-of-chelm-by-david-mamet.html) but the highlights became the entire article! It’s David Mamet so that should be no surprise.

It’s a question that hovers over Rises like a shadow in the twilight. Success breeds its own set of challenges, and the challenge for Nolan, who directed what many consider [...]
I’ve owned an assault rifle for 10 years. Fired it once. I planned on firing it more, specifically at whatever back-yard farm-field targets I could procure (watermelons, cans), but never got around to it. Ammo, in this day and age, is expensive, and so is time when you are a journalist with a full-time working [...]
I just used the Amazon link for some Christmas gift purchases. If Amazon has anything you need at a good price please do the same.

The [...]
