Or it is at all possible that we are living in the Matrix?  Or are a brain in a vat?  Be honest!  Is it at all possible?

The Mailman! --- For what is the mailman, if not a dashing adventurer wrapped in blue?  Does he not daily brave the sidewalks of America, that place where the average citizen roams wild, unhindered and real?  Does he not tackle blizzards, endure tempests, wrestle frothy-mouthed dogs, overcome [...]

On Abortion – The Good and the Very Bad

While preparing for a talk on abortion, I rummaged around the Planned Parenthood website, hoping to find some statistics and audio files.  To my surprise, they did in fact have a podcast.  The show is called “Speaking of Sex.”  It’s hosted by two spunky, none-too-easily-embarrassed, hip twenty somethings, Malika and Nathan.  Unfortunately, they applaud murder.    [...]
