I Can’t Help But Cry

That was the lachrymose lament in large bold fonts across this morning’s CNN.com. There are, of course, many times I share the sentiment in matters pertinent to this blog. Though in this instance I presumed a more personal tragedy. Perhaps a follow-up story on the husband who lost his wife and two young children in…

Science Continues to Dazzle

For any whose faith in science may have been strained by its recent forays into climate theology, this paper will reinvigorate your fervor. It’s title: Unlearning implicit social biases during sleep I can already envision several salutary applications before reading another word. Just by snoozing Arabs could unlearn their bias toward migrating into white countries…

Joshua Blahyi, a Nation Turns its Lonely Eyes to You

Despite the affected yearnings of black-clad baristas in balaclavas, anarchy is never more than a temporary condition. It is an interregnum between reigns. Order may be capricious and brutal, but a form of it always takes root. And that is why the gunfire lullaby in cities like Baltimore will eventually prompt a vacuum fill. With…

A Memorial Day Reprise

I posted a photo series last Memorial Day and am inclined to do so again now. There is a kind of warm melancholia in these images. Like reminiscing on an old friend, now deceased. I doubt the millennial generation will ever fully comprehend what has been taken from them. Perhaps a few gawk uncomprehendingly at…

Doing the Jobs Americans Won’t Do

I was reading more on Daron Wint, the now-notorious Guyanese immigrant DC murderer whose incarceration mugshot appears below. Before continuing…could you explain exactly what that thing on the right is supposed to be? A rejected third antagonist in the Alien v. Predator film franchise? I realize this query drifts distastefully into sensory utilization, but I…

The Rocky Road from Dublin

I reap societal solace from the few arable patches where it still may be cultivated. One of these, somewhat ironically, is my own failure to appreciate the malleability of the human mind. If you had offered me a wager 100 years ago that communist jews would concoct a word from whole cloth, and the West…

She’ll Be Comin Round the Mountain When She Comes

The duration an elephant can balance on a teeter-totter is finite. That has always been my thought observing the friction between racist! and the law. Something uniformly accepted as the summit of wickedness isn’t forever going to evade formal sanction. Or barring that, won’t retain its talismanic powers over the population. The pachyderm is going…

Miniaturized Hate

Let me axe you a question. What would you call an antique enuretic university professor who is… ✅ Pro-miscegenation, ✅ Pro-affirmative action, and ✅ A stock MLK idolater ? The answer, of course, is a white bigot supremacist KKKKKKKK Grand Master Jim Crow Nazi. Those likely being a few of the more abstemious descriptions that…

Harvard Haitians vs. Asian Voodoo Zombies

Completely by accident I read a piece recently in the reliably abysmal USA Today by a columnist named Yamiche Alcindor. Ya-meech-ee? Yahmekay? Yeah-mike? No matter. Ms. Alcindor (no relation to Lew) is the daughter of Haitian immigrants who have spent very few breaths at all explaining how their progenitors had nothing whatsoever to do with…
