This conversation is a conversation worth having

We are living in perilous times. Now, more than ever, it is time for America to have a conversation.

This is why I am here. This is my job. To start this conversation. To get America talking. All I do is present you with the facts. Facts that are perfect conversation starters. Facts that - deep inside - hold truths. Truths that need to be discussed.

Yes, in a way, it is about bravery. The bravery I'm showing in trying to get a conversation started. It is the type of bravery that demands its own conversation, really. But that is not why I'm here. I am here to push you - yes, you! - to get involved in the conversation America truly needs. History will be the judge of whether I should be discussed. [Read more]

Welcome to the Age of Narcissism

Humans have always been an extremely narcissistic bunch. Look at religion. A large swathe of humanity believes that there is a God - an actual God - who knows their name, address and Social Security number. And this God - with all the options of a God open - chooses to spend its time thinking about them.

 

Now that's having a high opinion of oneself.  [Read more]

America must do something about the Ukraine now. And probably Venezuela, also

Speaking as an American, which is something I often do, let me just say that I am outraged by the complete lack of American military intervention in Ukraine right now. America and the Obama Administration are once again refusing to show true leadership.

You’ve seen the pictures coming from Ukraine. It’s a mess. Total chaos. This is why the time to act is now. And act with confidence and focus. [Read more]

The Story of Mike & Christine

With some focusing recently on the Grantland story of Anne Vanderbilt, I wanted to run this story which I originally wrote in 2010, about the tragic tale of sportswriter Christine Daniels.

“I am a transsexual sportswriter.
