Aggression is Aggression is Aggression is Aggression

There has been an interesting blogfest on the LewRockwell.com blog on “bullying.” I thought I’d post my comment on my blog too. I am so surprised how some people can blow off aggression between kids as being a non-issue, and think of it in an antiquated fashion such as “Hey, just teach your kid to [...]

Divorce

Tuesday, September 30, 2003 9:41 Comments Off

Just thinkin’ about divorce and how Catholics approach it. At the risk of being shouted down as a heretic to my Catholic Church, I’ll post this. I’m going to stay real simplistic, almost too simplistic, and not get into all of the Catholic doctrine, because we all know and understand that stuff. Most of us [...]

I am pulling for the Hoiles family, but it’s unlikely they will outbid the corporate giants like Gannett and MediaNews Group. The Orange County Register was formerly the most libertarian newspaper in America.

Rothbard on Sunk Costs

Monday, September 29, 2003 10:40 Comments Off

Years ago, I was a member of a dinner party during a Mont Pelerin meeting in Brussels. We decided to dine at what turned out to be a half-star restaurant. As I remember, [...]

50s and 60s Music

In my CD collection, my 50s and 60s CD collection alone (pop, R&B, Soul, surf, instrumental, Hit Parade) probably numbers about 600-700.

It’s a Sunday — who wants hardcore politics today? I got three new CDs the other day. Somebody (Sony) ony finally put out a nice, but not-too-big Miles Davis mini-retrospective, spanning most of the labels he recorded for. Also, I bought the new, 2-CD Sam Cooke compilation that covers his career from 1951-1964, and even [...]

Fall is here. Well, at least it has come to Michigan. We’re expecting highs in the 40s this week – already. Yikes! I love fall in the Midwest, but I hate to see summer end. But you haven’t experienced a perfect autumn until you’ve experienced a Midwest (or Northeast) autumn. Here in Michigan, we have [...]
