“I’m sexy and I know it.” NOT!
Ironically, I really like the GEICO Pinocchio commercials.

How do you feel when someone calls you a liar?
It’s best to assume people are honest — that they really believe what they say. You have no need to believe the same things, but you do best to believe they do. Continue reading Do you lie?

The story of Dez Bryant’s childhood nearly gave me nightmares.
Officer Nasty works security at the library. He doesn’t wait for trouble to happen or for someone to ask him for help. Instead, he constantly patrols the whole place looking for people who may be breaking the rules, so he can put them out. He walks up and down the narrow aisles of the computer center to see what you have on your screen. He comes into the men’s room hoping to catch someone in the act — act of what, I can’t imagine. You get the picture.
… when first we practice to deceive.
I have had direct contact with trials involving Edward Smith, Jr. in the past, such that his antics here come to me as no surprise.

For a long time, I have balked at seeking transitional housing, mainly for two reasons: (1) There must be a thousand buildings in Baltimore City serving that function, each with its own application process, eligibility criteria and rules — not to mention desirability. There’s no way to find “the right place” without going to each one in person. (2) I have heard too many credible horror stories of negligent house managers and conflicts with residents who abuse substances, abuse the property, and abuse each other.
Fortunately, the case manager at the clinic appears to have equipped me with the very short list of highest-rated outfits.
Last week’s City Paper cover story sets forth a microcosm of what is, in fact, the big picture:
The entry below for December 30, 2015 was the last straw, moving me to “out” this information as a post.
For some months, I have made a good faith effort to note every headline my Yahoo! News feed captured from Salon.com that touched on religion.
Salon.com holds itself forth as, in effect, the voice of progressivism.
The headlines themselves display a pronounced bias on the topic of religion. Not all, but almost all, are hostile.
Not skeptical. Not indifferent. Not equanimous.
I am struck that this posture cannot possibly be intellectually honest.
