JUSTIFIED – A Book Recommendation

  JUSTIFIED, a novel of star-faring Knights Templar waging an interstellar crusade was not one I could pass up. And for the most part, it was entertaining. The book's crusade is backdrop to the story of Drin, a knight who suffers a crisis of faith so severe that he abandons his post and brother Templars. … Continue reading JUSTIFIED – A Book Recommendation

Mass Shootings: Sources and Solutions

Messano News  offers up a succinct and, for the most part, correct analysis of the epidemic of mass shootings. My only issue with the post is that it leaves out one other contributing factor: legalized abortion.

I'd wager it would be more critically and commercially successful than the misadventure which is the most  Recent Installment  in Marvel Comics' mutants movie franchise. … Continue reading The X-Men Go To Church

The Converts – A Book Recommendation

This 1967 novel opens a wide, picturesque window onto life in the Roman Empire in the 5th Century. Curiously, if not eerily, the view is a mirror to our own time. The window the novel provides for us to peer through are the sharply intelligent eyes of Alypius, the young, sensitive friend of Saint Augustine … Continue reading The Converts – A Book Recommendation
