Life is full of little ironies, isn’t it? I see them everywhere and often they give life some real interest and depth. For instance, isn't it curious to you that the creator of dynamite, a real leap forward in man's ability to wreak havoc on his fellow man and his environment… Read full post »
Some time ago I posted a musing on whether or not it was time to think about the word “sacrifice” again. In the interim, I have not only become more certain that it is, I have noted the incredible dearth of the political types being willing to address the issue.
“It’s laissez-faire until you get into deep shit” said John Gutfreund, the man who took Saloman Bros. public. This simple act of taking a (very special kind of) private company public back in the mid-go-go-go 80’s began a series of events that culminated in the subp/… Read full post »

I am beginning to sense a theme here. . .
During the break of a wildly frenetic concert last night by the Portland-based band “March Fourth” (see them at your peril. Don’t see them at your loss) my brother and I had a conversation. As usual, these conversations run to po… Read full post »
What time frame comes to mind when you hear “Vietnam?” I’d bet that in a free association experiment, most people would think of the period from the 1968 election through April 30, 1975, even though the first American death was 1945. You might see helicopters landing in… Read full post »
"Words have life Tim. Once you have spoken them, they exist away from you and can’t be taken back. Be careful about what you say."

I was a newbie in the church ~ and had made a few friends of some of its more senior members. I hoped someday I might be as learned and holy, because they really seemed like good kind people to me. And for the most part, they were. But there… Read full post »
April 30, 1953 (birth); April 30, 1973 (awakening); April 30, 1993 (decisions).
