Searching for love

CLAY CENTER - I coached myself saying, "If I make this basket then she loves me." After the ball slammed against the rim and bounced to the asphalt I said, "OK, the best out of 10." Just like when I was a teenager, every one of us is in search for love. Experts say more than 2 billion minutes a month are logged online by people searching for love. Additionally, many of the top songs on the Billboard charts deal with love and the most successful movies each year always feature a romance between the leading man and woman.

Lessons from Paris

After the tragic shooting at a provocative magazine in Paris last week, I pointed out that given the foreign policy positions of France we must consider blowback as a factor. Those who do not understand blowback made the ridiculous claim that I was excusing the attack or even blaming the victims. Not at all, as I abhor the initiation of force. The police blaming victims when they search for the motive of a criminal.
