By Dr. James L. Snyder   The last several weeks have truly been hectic in every sense of the word. Trying to catch up can be a never-ending job. When I think I’m caught up, I see another thing I need to do. I have learned that kicking the can down the street only hurts your big toe.

By LRon Brooks   THE STICKS—Life can be pretty interesting if you stop following whatever the competing popular/media narratives are and start paying actual individual attention to specific stuff. Stuff like facts and things. There’s no end of facts and things out there once you think to start looking for them. THEN they become uncomfortably impossible to miss. Or dismiss.
