One of the first classic novels I came across, and through the medium of a radio play, was the Count of Monte Christo.  My mother objected to televisions on principle and so we grew up with radio which in many ways was a blessing.  Radio feeds the imagination in a way that television does not. […]

This post is by way of a postscript to the main theme of the series.  To be honest, I am never sure if the twelve days of Christmas start on the Day itself or Boxing day, but today is Epiphany when the Magi presented their gifts to the Christ Child and the traditional end of […]

One of the most painful ever scenes for anyone of a progressive mindset is the People’s front of Judea from Monty Pythons Life of Brian which came out in 1979.  I think it is my favorite of the Monty Python films. Aside from the People’s Front, I love the final scene Always Look on the […]

I have been thinking a lot about climate change during the COVID-19 times (and so have many many many others). Two things have struck many among us, and have repeatedly been brought up in discussions I have been a part of.
