The Modern Romans, July 30, 2013

We are the Modern Romans of today; this is nothing to be proud of.  From dysfunctional families of all ethnicities and races to our failing institutions that find excuses to serve unfairly, we are all plagued with moral decadence.  And in case you’re wondering what this really means, it means that scarcity has become a stranger to us, because of a lifestyle of milk and honey that has run amuck

Our Man in Havana: Fitzhugh Lee, July 23, 2013

Fitzhugh Lee lived his life no differently than any other Americans who found the character to fight and defend the interests of your government for the advancement of a new people in Cuba to live free.  We continue to do that today to some diluted extent in the Middle East, as well as other parts of the world.  All great countries create their legacies for posterior generations to emulate and

Management, Leadership, and The Corporation, June 25, 2013

Corporate business is serious because it provides the stuff from which jobs come from to put food on the table, feed your family, keep your marriage, and to some extent, it helps keep your sanity glued.

Smart Meters: What Do They Bring Us?, June 18, 2013

If it’s about smart meters today, what will it be tomorrow?  The issue here is not so much about smart meters, although they can be a danger and an inconvenience I know, but it’s about taking away peoples’ personal choice, a choice that should be acknowledged and respected by the government and not have it swept away as if it didn’t matter.  When governments deny or overlook public concerns on

It Is About Each Other, June 11, 2013

Whenever you deal with people, the dynamics are as interesting and fun as they are challenging and hurtful.  My father once told me, and by the way, this advice came from a man who was married to my mother for 63 years, that one of the secrets to having a long and happy marriage was to choose someone who naturally coincides with the way you are on the part of both the woman and the man.  This

On Being Overweight, June 4, 2013

Yes, I know we live in a time of fast and fat foods for sale, that medical authorities and the media are telling us the dangers of overeating on the one hand but also providing us with spectacular access to volumes of fattening foods on the other, that medicines and diets don’t always do what they promise, and that doctors with their magic scalpels and hundreds of tummy-tucks cannot surgically

The Media: Informant, Alarmist, Deceiver, May 28, 2013

Who’s getting the better bargain in this democracy of ours, the power brokers or the common folks like you and me?  Well let’s see.  On the one hand, it’s sad to know that you go to bed at night thinking that you sleep under the blanket of privileges a democracy promises, and rest under the constitutional protection that you think a bill of rights can give you.  Then you wake up the next morni

Athletes and Salaries, May 14, 2013

Sports used to involve the simple love of the game; today, it’s a high stakes, high-stressed business that consumes every morsel of financial interest that stands in the way of club owners and financiers that bankroll them into successful seasons year after year.  But in a way, it’s really a question of values: what do you value?  A future, I’m sure, but what kind?  Will it be a kind to be sho
