Reflections from my forty year reunion

There comes a time in one's life when you can feel the arc of life start to descend. The realization that the road is ahead is shorter than the one behind. Your age is part of it, but only a part.

Virginia Governor’s race is the establishment’s revenge

November's off-year Virginia governor's race is what conservatives would have faced in 2016 if Trump had done a Hillary as he descended the escalator for his announcement and wound up in A Place for Mom instead of the Oval Office.

Is “Trunk or Treat” a Halloween Heresy?
