H.L. Mencken in 1923 about translation of sacred texts, liturgy. Hilarious, prophetic, applicable now.

One of you readers here sent this.  It is by H.L Mencken, an influential American columnist in the 20th c.  He was prodigiously clever, but clever enough to avoid being a fan of Nietzche and an enemy of religion.  He … Continue reading

On the topic of Challenge Coins, I received a text from an NYPD cop who will be at tonight’s game between the noble small-market, well-deserving Twins and the arrogant, effete, big-market hated Yankees.  He is, woe betide, unrepenting in his support … Continue reading

9/11 and bullying

On this day, 9/11, when we should all, with damp eyes, wear our war faces, I am conscious of bullying.
