I do not trust the judgement of a person that would feel a need to carry a loaded assault weapon around with them. Such a person does not have a mature, adult concept of what is dangerous versus what is not dangerous. This adolescent conduct is dangerous and creates a more dangerous public space as basic good judgement is already compromised.
We took our first road trip in Nick—driving to Martinez for a bit of business1. We then decided to head up to Vacaville for lunch. We wanted to visit the Vacaville supercharger station. We really didn’t need to charge, but the whole idea was to try it out. This was our first supercharger experience. It’s free. It’s blazing fast. […]
“Any decision to use contraceptives made by a woman covered under Hobby Lobby’s or Conestoga’s plan will not be propelled by the Government, it will be the woman’s autonomous choice, informed by the physician she consults.”

In 21st-century America, I am feeling less and less like a living soul and more and more like a collection of data points. I place the blame for this at the feet of the American church.
Serving a community through public education is a difficult and demanding task. Public school teachers get blamed for everything. Little of what they are blamed for is actually within their sphere of influence, let alone control. But, arguably, the hardest job in the school has to be that of the public school principal. I know.

From My Friend Sharon’s Timeline Leaving IHOP the other day, the manager called after us, ‘Be careful out there. Satan‘s at work!’ Fascinating twist on ‘Have a nice day.’” Her status update made me laugh. She’s not just a brilliant writer (professionally, actually), her beautiful karma invites interesting energy into her day-to-day life. And at […]
