I love Jesus for many reasons, one of which happens to be beer. In terms of food and drink, I think alcoholic beverages are among the greatest blessings we have received from our Creator. Aside from the variety of great flavors and the relaxing effects of alcohol (in moderation of course), alcoholic beverages have played […]

The ancient and beautiful Arabian civilization that once flourished has putrefied and disintegrated. It will not be good and virtuous again in my lifetime, if ever. Yet, President Obama has once again led us into the frenzied internal affairs of Iraq and Syria, both societies long gutted of any meaningful virtues, long before the US […]

A couple of weeks ago, when the news that star football running back, Adrian Peterson, had been charged with child abuse, for spanking his son with a “switch,” I immediately thought about how absurd it was to charge a parent with such a serious crime just for spanking his son. During discussions with friends about […]

Thursday marks 13 years since the attacks of September 11, 2001; and as the intrepid Fred Gray points out this week, we aren’t doing too well in the struggle to win the War on Terror. This column isn’t going to rehash the events of that fateful day. Suffice to say that your editor – and […]

This Thursday marks the 13th anniversary of the 9-11 attack on America. I still remember exactly where I was when the announcements the attacks first came over the radio. I was driving to work in Boise, Idaho. At first, it appeared that an airplane had accidently hit the World Trade Center. Shortly thereafter, the radio […]

It isn’t easy being free. Threats come from all around you. Sometimes it’s from those close to home; other times it comes from far away. Being a journalist is particularly treacherous, especially in some parts of the world. Last week, a group of barbarians literally removed the head of one American reporter. The Islamic State […]

Tricky Ricky’s recent indictment aside, it must be assumed that Rick Perry is not just innocent; he is actually being railroaded by Democrats from Travis County, the liberal bastion surrounding Austin. Of course, who’s to say the aforementioned assumption is simply taken out of context – a context that is wrong? What is this issue […]

As you all may well know, a monument suddenly appeared in front of the Donley County Courthouse Annex a couple of weeks ago. Most folks knew it was coming, so it’s not a great surprise. On it, many statements were attributed to several Founding Fathers, along with others, including the Ten Commandments. Anyway, with all […]

This is in response to the Editor’s Commentary a couple of weeks ago in The Clarendon Enterprise regarding school days and how they have changed. I would like to acknowledge that the editor is right and things have changed, some for the better, some for the worse. Our world is not the same. Our school […]

A sure sign that the rapture is near is when I find some occasional common ground with Fabulous Fred. More likely is that I am losing my rather tenuous grip on sanity. In his Killer Weed commentary I found some spotty agreement which is generally cause for rethinking my position. In discussions of drugs, I […]
