“Us Against Xians”

I’ve seen a couple of articles recently that both intrigue me and worry me, and which spring out of recent attacks on Christian communities in non-Christian countries — for example, the Sri Lankan church bombings. I find these interesting and probably useful to us as a culture because they confront us with two important facts:…

Yang Distresses Me

From the Editor’s Desk I am distressed by how often I find myself writing about Andrew Yang, this year’s most inexplicable candidate for President. I don’t think he should be president. He doesn’t have the background for it. He’s a successful high tech CEO, yes, but that really isn’t what you need to be in…

The Death Of Higher Education

From The Editor’s Desk: There have been several interesting articles in the press lately about just how awful it is to be an academic in America these days, particularly if you are an adjunct. Basically, what’s happened in the last forty years or so is that the universities have shifted most teaching tasks to non-tenured…

Blarney And Babble

So the other day, which was also St. Patrick’s Day, I was cruising the web and all of a sudden I saw something very curious. It was a posting on Instagram, the image sharing service, and it showed a large St. Patrick’s Day celebration in some city or other. Maybe New York. Maybe Chicago. But…

The Guard Is In Chains

Today I saw another article decrying identity politics. I’ll confess, I run hot and cold on this. As a good 1960s hold-over, I have the tendency to privilege identity politics…whether based on race, class, gender, or what have you. Yet, I will also admit to feeling some concern about it. As a weapon it is,…

No More (Mars) A’ Roving

From the editor’s desk: So last week we all read about the Mars Rover Opportunity and how, after 15 years of unexpected service, it had finally perished in a uniquely awful Martian sandstorm. It even had a few rather touching last words, “My battery is low and it is getting dark.” Or, roughly that. The…

No Apostles Allowed

From The Editor’s Desk Thursday, December 6, 2018 This morning my wife pointed out something that I hadn’t noticed. To wit, at George H.W. Bush’s funeral earlier this month, Trump was alone among the attending dignitaries and former presidents not to recite the Apostles’ Creed — or, at least, he doesn’t appear to in the…

Putin’s Pup Roasts World

Desert 1

So, here’s just a quick thought about the geopolitical consequences of global warming, plus maybe a modest proposal. We know that Trump and Trump’s people deny global warming, even while it is obviously happening. We got fires and floods to prove it. Yet, they keep right on pretending that it isn’t happening, or, if it…

The Fourth And Fortuna

So this is going to be a short one. In it, I’m going to talk about how I spent my Fourth of July this year. Or, at least, a major part of it. This year, for once, I did none of the things that we all usually do on this date. I did not incinerate…

Notes From The Editor

Our editor, the crazed Michael Jay Tucker, offers some notes on stories that you might have missed, but will most certainly want to catch before they go. And, also, he gives us a glance at some great upcoming features on LR Net…including excerpts from a terrifically funny novel set in a post-Trumpian America.
