  • The face of war

        I see the face of war, the one who went for me; the soldier, sailor, airman, the one who served for me.  The flash of exploding bombs, the crack of guns, the terrible screams of pain. 
        Most of us experience military service only through the eyes, ears, and efforts of others—our father, brother, son, uncle, aunt, sister, or mother.  But mostly men and often friends as well as relatives.

  • Roy Moore: Alabama’s fruit salad fanatic

        There was a hilarious article recently in “The New Yorker” about the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in Alabama, God’s own Roy Moore.
        Moore, whom we know from his Ten Commandments obsessions, defeated Senator Luther Strange in a Republican primary. This is the election to replace Jeff “Beauregard” Sessions, unfortunately now the U.S. Attorney General.

  • Talk radio didn’t do it

        Last month, I was talking with a group of people who I believe were mostly liberal “Democrats.” A major topic was how our society came to be so polarized. They blamed it on conservative talk radio.

  • A matter of prayer

        We have been reminded once again this week of the depths to which some men’s souls can fall.
        Last Sunday our nation was thrust into another tragedy when a deranged man entered a small Texas church and opened fire on those in attendance, killing 26 and injuring many more. The man was killed in a subsequent pursuit by an armed neighbor of the church, but the horrific damage had already been done.

  • Sports Day-ly: The NBA Superhero Comparison: Part II

    Welcome into round two of the Superhero and NBA team comparison. Essentially a couple hundred words of me completely nerding out with my slightly above average knowledge of superheroes and my elite level of basketball knowledge. Maybe elite is not the right word to describe my basketball knowledge, that seems arrogant. We'll call it semi-elite in an effort to express my humility.

  • Liberty can't hang on

    Liberty's mission was simple, finish the season with a win and guarantee a spot in the playoffs. The Minutemen had to go through the Rustburg Red Devils to accomplish that task.
     

    While Liberty was unable to come out victorious, falling 25-20, the Minutemen's season will be continuing with a berth in the Region 3C playoffs.
     

    On the first play from scrimmage Rustburg managed to jar the ball loose from the Minutemen. The Red Devils picked up the ball and took it in for a touchdown to go up 6-0.
