I sometimes wonder if my family’s entered into a secret compact to keep me away from my computer. I’ve gone from having five hours or so to myself every day from Monday to Friday to having perhaps two hours to myself for the entire week. It’s hard to think sometimes. Of course, my week’s gone a whole lot better than Sony’s week. It isn’t every day, is it, that a whole studio is forced to cave to blackmail and threats? (Read more.)

On Sunday night, a member of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity posted what became a controversial Christmas photo on Facebook. The photo showed the brothers — most of whom appear to be caucasian [sic) — posing in holiday attire in a living room. Next to one of the brothers on the left of the photo was a dark-skinned blow-up doll.

Jonathan Gruber should have been Time’s Person of the Year. The magazine gave it to the “Ebola Fighters” instead. Good for them; they’re doing God’s work. Still, Gruber would have been better.

Another day, another trip to the doctor with my mother. This is a trip that, I hope, should leave her feeling much better. She has no cartilage left in one of her shoulders, so any movement means that her bones are grinding against each other. Indeed, when I hold her hand to help her get in and out of the car, I can feel that grinding bones vibrate down her arm. It’s creepy for me and extremely painful for her. Today, though, she gets a cortisone shot, so she should be feeling much less pain in a couple of days. Meanwhile

THE NATIONAL CONVERSATION ON RACE: SOME RULES?
The Frary Home Companion, by Professor John Frary

Twelve years after Bill Clinton told us he wanted to start a “national conversation on race", Attorney General Eric Holder whined that “we, average Americans, simply do no talk enough with each other about race. If we are to make progress in this area, we must feel comfortable enough with one another, and tolerant enough of each other, to have frank conversations about the racial matters that continue to divide us.” This month President Obama told us that protests like those in Portland last week are “helping the country have a necessary conversation about race relations and police practices.”

Vivek Murthy: Obama´s New Anti-Gun Surgeon General

On Monday, the Senate has approved Vivek Murthy to be the next U.S. surgeon general. Murthy is many things, of course, he is a far, far left-wing activist, and a stolid liberal, but one thing he definitely is, is a major anti-gun nut, a man who hates the US Constitution.

This is an Open Thread about Obama’s decision to normalize relations with Cuba. I’m woefully uninformed about the entire Cuba story, going back to Kennedy, so I don’t yet have an opinion and would very much like to hear from you. (Read more.)

My Advice to Sorkin: “Take the Cannoli”

Aaron Sorkin is disillusioned; he’s left to wonder if there is any "such thing as privacy anymore." Sorkin, famous Hollywood screenwriter who wrote The Social Network, Moneyball, and The West Wing, also wrote a New York Times editorial, sharing his views on the Sony hack of Hollywood emails: If you close your eyes you can imagine the hackers sitting in a room, combing through the documents to find the ones that will draw the most blood. And in a room next door are American journalists doing the same thing. As demented and criminal as it is, at least…

Tortured Reasoning

Critics and defenders of the harsh interrogation methods applied to captured terrorists can argue forever over whether those methods were “torture.” But any serious discussion of a serious issue — and surely terrorism qualifies as serious — has to move beyond semantics and confront the ultimate question: “Compared to what alternative?”

If success at the state level were enough to recommend someone for president of the United States, Gov. Mike Pence of Indiana would be among the frontrunners for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination.

Stumbled over this nearly two year old post by Joe Hoover last night and was rather mesmorized by it: It is mid-Lent and you stumble into a church, not because it is Lent or you have a habit of churchgoing but because you need a bathroom. You try to look like you belong there, bowing your head, making yourself a bit tense. They are just about to begin a service. Something about the candles, the kid in the white gown holding the taper, the marble, the death, everywhere death and gloom and a lack of irony. This you want...

The Newtown shooting was an unspeakable tragedy, a horrific act of violence that scarred the country and left too many families with a hole that can never be filled. And now, some of the families of the victims are suing the maker and seller of the rifle that Adam Lanza used to massacre innocent people.

Liberals have arrived at a clever technique for ridding the world of torture. They are defining the word downward toward the point where everything is torture. If everything is torture, then nothing is torture. Voilà: no more torture.

While Democrats here in the US and other liberals around the world have been wringing their hands and getting the vapors over the CIA enhanced interrogation program, hardcore Islamists have been doing what they do: kill people in gruesome ways. ISIS beheads people, including Americans. And the Taliban.

The 21st century version of “The dog ate my homework.” We have two new entries today in the continuing saga of Ivy League and affluent college students trying to delay taking exams on account of their being traumatized by Darren Wilson’s acquittal and Eric Garner’s deaths and their being exhausted by the physical and emotional burdening of taking to the streets to protest those two traumas. The first entry is an overwrought, horribly written, and horribly reasoned essay by a young man who styles himself as a third year Harvard Law Student and editor of Harvard’s Law Review.

This is a post I’ve been meaning to write for some time about a thriller series that was fast and fun to read. I stumbled across C. G. Cooper’s Corps Justice series through BookBub’s daily email telling me about Amazon book deals. My practice is that, if a free book listed in BookBub looks even remotely interesting, I download it onto my Kindle. After all, since it’s free, no harm, no foul, right? (Read more.)

Does Barack Obama have an ulterior motive for basically promoting terrorism through his US troop withdrawals in Iraq and Afghanistan in addition to negotiations with Iran, or is he just a really bad President?
