Shining examples of greatness, forged in the fire of adversity

About every month, another parenting book arrives at Barnes & Noble. I bought the most recent arrival and skimmed it quickly - entitled "How to Raise an Adult: Break Free of the Overparenting Trap and Prepare Your Kid for Success," by Julie Lythcott-Haims.

If Yesterday's News Came Today

One of my favorite movies is "Jurassic Park." Actually, that's not true. One of my 6-year-old nephew's favorite movies is "Jurassic Park," which means we watch it on a loop.

Donald Trump and the River of Slime

All I really need to know about Donald Trump I learned from "Ghostbusters II." An undercurrent of hate and fear-a river of slime, if you will-is fueling his march toward the Republican nomination. How far this takes him depends on whether, as Ray the Ghostbuster put it, we can summon what is best about America before it's too late.

Brightsides to the Perpetual Campaign

It's easy to tell the end of summer the year before a presidential election is nigh, because that bothersome quadrennial buzzing noise is back. And no, we're not talking about candidates riding the Tilt-A-Whirl at the Iowa State Fair after eating pork on a stick.

Blame the Fed for Stock Market Crash

Following Monday's historic stock market downturn, many politicians and so-called economic experts rushed to the microphones to explain why the market crashed and to propose "solutions" to our economic woes. Not surprisingly, most of those commenting not only failed to give the right answers, they failed to ask the right questions.

Does Beach Crowding Mean People LIKE Warm Weather?

Using a new scientific breakthrough that measures the increase in Beryllium-10, researchers have discovered the Koch brothers are thousands of years older than previously thought. This sudden increase in maturity puts the Klimate Kriminal Kochs in fairly august company. Polar bears, Peking Man, Stonehenge and Ebola are also now thought to be much older than previously assumed.

Baseball's Botched Scoring

Here's how Major League Baseball logged the first play in a Giants-Cubs game the other night: "Kyle Schwarber doubles on a pop up to pitcher Jake Peavy." Whaa?

Will Joe Biden 'Feel the Tingle?'

The latest Joe Biden speculation basically falls into two categories: He's leaning toward a presidential bid (unless he isn't), and he's a potentially formidable candidate (unless he isn't). Truth is, nobody really knows. And that includes Joe, who at most has another month - until the run-up to the first Democratic debate on Oct. 13 - to make up his mind.

Reflections on CKMC and the passing of an era

Count me along with pretty much everyone else who is awash in nostalgia with the tear down of the Central Kansas Medical Center. Some readers probably have fond reflections about becoming moms on the birthing ward. Or seeing their parents discharged after a life-threatening emergency and greeting them with balloons, tears, hugs. Or perhaps being present when it was dedicated so many years ago.

EPA: The Cure's Usually Worse Than the 'Disease'

Like the road to Hell, liberal ideas are usually paved with good intentions. But, as Ronald Reagan once said, "The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant, but that they know so much that isn't so." And all that vast un-knowledge births monster government agencies like the Environmental Protection Agency, which end up doing more harm than good.

America's Heroin Epidemic

There were so many people buying "breakfast bags" of heroin from street dealers one Philadelphia morning, the traffic came to a standstill - and the dealers cursed at anyone who dared honk.

Marble Poisoning

It's a race to the outside. Avoid the middle like the plague. The goal is to not be one with the pack. Even the most conservative of Republicans knows they have to move beyond the rock-solid, standard-bearer of the party line. Anybody who wants the nomination today has to show some flash, be a rebel, an iconoclast, wear a puffy shirt. Wild and wacky is the new name of the electioneering game.

We Need an Exchange Program for Racial Integration

The best response to the Black Lives Matter movement is the one solution we're not considering: integration. Black and white Americans live largely separate but unequal lives, living in segregated neighborhoods and attending segregated schools that seem foreign to each other. We lack the political will for forced integration-even though it worked-but we should consider a student exchange program to build bridges between our communities.

EPA Discovers Water Flows Downhill

Only the Obama administration, with it's special kind of incompetence, could turn a mine that's been closed for 92 years into an environmental disaster. That's exactly what happened when the Keystone regulators at the Environmental "Protection" Agency decided to dig into a dam holding back dangerously polluted water at the Gold King mine.
