Movie Review: Mad Dog and Glory

MadDogby Brad Nelson   4/23/14
With a 6.2 rating at IMDB.com, this is further evidence of the irrelevance of that rating system and of popular tastes in general. Thankfully, I don’t have popular taste. I have good taste…at least in movies. More » • (5 views)

TheMissionby Brad Nelson   4/23/14

socconby Glenn Fairman   4/21/14
If you believe that America can successfully sever social from fiscal conservatism and call the resulting abomination some species of prudent constitutionalism, then you my friends are gravely mistaken. More » • (68 views)

Review: Denver is Missing by D. F. Jones

DenverIsMissingby Timothy Lane   4/20/14
At a time when the idea of storing carbon dioxide underground to protect against “climate change” (I just read the article on coal in the April issue of National Geographic, which discussed the topic), it seems appropriate to discuss a 1971 book that happened to suggest the possible implications.

This Book Can Hack It

Kingpinby Brad Nelson   4/20/14
How do you run into a book? Sometimes by hook or by crook. And I happened to run across this one by chance and got to reading it…and couldn’t put it down. It must appeal to my secret desire to push back against “the man.” More » • (60 views)

This Is Not About Eggs

NotEggsby Deana Chadwell    4/19/14
On a Friday morning 1,984 years ago, on an escarpment known as Golgotha – the Place of the Skull, Roman soldiers drove huge iron nails through the wrists and ankles of Jesus of Nazareth, affixing him to a wooden cross, and then they hefted it upright between two thieves also being crucified that morning.

Ecce Homo

eccehomopaintby Glenn Fairman   4/19/14

What’s Wrong with the Right

GellerSigby Pamela Geller   4/18/14
National Review Online took another gratuitous shot at me Thursday in an article defending Ayaan Hirsi Ali, saying: “Hirsi Ali is no Pamela Geller. On the contrary, for her whole life, Hirsi Ali has used anger as a catalyst to great good.” More » • (187 views)

The End of the World and Other Entertainments

EndOfTheWorldby Jon N. Hall    4/16/14
Folks have always been fascinated by the End of the World. Christianity addresses this little problem in Book of Revelation, where we read about the Beast of the Apocalypse, the Four Horsemen of Apocalypse, the Whore of Babylon, the Seven Seals, and such. More » • (98 views)

Book Review: Empires of Light

EmpiresOfLightby Brad Nelson   4/15/14
This is a rare book that combines history and technology in a very readable form. And consider this part of your course study for understanding and appreciating the fruits of Western Civilization. The power behind your iPad was not something dreamed up in the Sudan. More » • (128 views)
