The History of Language, March 5, 2013

Listen to my show, and only then will you know the value of language through the kind of communication we all have with one another.  Language is a beautiful form of expression, but it can also be just as much provocative and conflictive as it can be peaceful: it’s our choice to do with it what we think is best.  But if language is our predominant form of communication, that is, the one form o

Does Social Class Matter?, February 26, 2013

When you listen to my show, you’ll be wondering what you mean when you say he has no class.  Class is one of those elusive concepts that you can’t readily identify, but you know what it is the moment you see it.  You can’t buy class; you can’t inherit it.  Having class is just one of those things that certain people have and carry inside them for a lifetime without really knowing what it is, b

The State of Democracy, February 19, 2013

Fashion or Provocation?, January 8, 2013

YOU’VE GOT TO CATCH THIS SHOW! Have you ever wondered what you look like in the mirror before you go out for an evening’s fun, or just going to work? Take a good and careful look at yourself, because it can cost you your job. Yep, that’s what I said.

The 8 Gifts of Christmas, December 25, 2012

There are 8 gifts of Christmas that we have, or have had at some point, but we’ve misused them terribly, to the point where we have conscientiously chosen to let them go to pursue other fictitious aspirations. Why?

From thinking, to creating an idea, to mass-producing dependence, and to selling a public obsession; the evolution of technology has found its way into our lives in a way never imagined.
