Update

Filed in Everwhatever

I’m working on part 2 of Fideles Quaerens Intellectum. That should probably be out by this weekend. I’m about to try some different time management strategies, so hopefully we’ll see an increase in overall productivity. In the meanwhile, in looking at all the ruckus over Richard Clarke, I like Gregg Easterbrook’s analysis the best. Basically, [...]

Some More Samples I Like

Filed in Everwhatever

Got sidetracked by that white “Black” dude. (You mean John Kerry was on the bus and I didn’t even recognize him?) • “Takeover” – Jay-Z: “Five to One” – The Doors • “The Truth” – Beanie Sigel : “Chicago” – Graham Nash • “Tha Nigga Ya Love to Hate” – Ice Cube : “Weak In [...]

Ain’t We Lucky We Got ‘Em

Filed in Everwhatever

Watched a couple episodes from the first season of Good Times again. Let me tell you, Good Times was a very different show those first few seasons. The difference was James. When James was there, it was still very much an ensemble piece. JJ was still cooning it up, but in the proper context, he [...]

Young man/old man

Filed in Everwhatever

My pop once told me that every young man needs an old man. He either said “has” or “needs” and I like “needs” better. I feel fortunate that I have had a lot of “old men” in my life, even when I was still a boy and my old men were young. In some ways, [...]

Spring Has Sprung

Filed in Everwhatever

Wow. Days like today make me really grateful that I was able to cop a lap. This is an absolutely gorgeous day. It’s about 65, maybe 70, the sun is shining, and I’m in Philly. The only thing keeping this from being an absolutely perfect day is that my lady’s not here. If she was, [...]

A Quote & Some Questions

Filed in Everwhatever

I got these out of this book, “The Little Book of Stupid Questions” by David Borgenicht “Everybody is ignorant, only on different subjects”- Will Rogers • If you were lost on a desert island and could only take with you one book,and CD, what would you choose? Book: The Bible CD: I can think of [...]

Fides Quaerens Intellectum (Faith Seeking Understanding)

Filed in Everwhatever

The intersection between politics and religion is a dangerous one. It’s fraught with more peril than the one between health, weight, and body image. To put it in a local context, it’s worse than the intersection of Red Lion Road and Roosevelt Boulevard (I’m back home for spring break). Countless people and have been killed [...]

This is just what I was talkin’ about

Filed in Everwhatever

For as much as I complain about the likes of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton ‘nem, I can honestly say that if I was in a situation like those people in Texas who had been incarcerated by the lies of a rogue police officer, I would call Jesse or Al before any Black conservative I [...]

G.O.A.T.

Filed in Everwhatever

I’m at the Borders in Philly and they have a display copy of the picture book, GOAT: A Tribute to Muhammad Ali.(The acronym stands for Greatest of All Time) That thing is absolutely fantastic. It’s incredible. I either own or have read most of the books about Ali that are out there, so when I [...]
