As a Jew, my times in church are very limited. Weddings, funerals, etc. But frankly, my time in a synogogue is pretty much the same. From the time I was roughly 8, I couldn't figure out why everyone thought their own religion was "the 'right' one" - as I knew that everyone could not be correct! Though when younger I saw far more negative associated with religion than positive, now I feel it is more neutral. Religion can be used as a force for good - or - not. It is up to the people practicing it, and their specific beliefs. As a proponent of 12 steps for over 12 years now, I do believe in a power greater than myself. But, I do not need to enter a house of worship to be grateful for spiritual assistance nor think about it. That being said, unlike some, I am not the least bit critical of those who receive comfort and satisfaction from their religion. And this much I know for certain: I am very glad that, Keith, that you were able to find Katherine and have her as an integral part of your life. If going to church helps to enhance your marriage and life - I'm most supportive of your high attendance!

The brother of the first real estate client I ever had wrote the screenplay. I haven't had a chance to see the film yet. But - looking forward to it reaching the cheapie (yet nice) theatre I usually utilize!

Great shot, Professor!

JUST beautiful! And utterly NOTHING AT ALL like it is here in the frozen tundra!

Couldn't agree with you more about Martin Luther King, Jr - fortunately for us. As for our president...you need only to open your eyes, Richard.

Not sure exactly how old I was - but I was a small child. I think that the first time I flew was with my family to Florida for a vacation. Back then (in the Dark Ages!) flight was fun and exotic and elegant. Passengers were treated like royalty. Although it's wonderful that flying is available to so many today, I still often think wistfully of the times when getting on a plane was a most special adventure.

Alas. These are not from The Onion - they are from our federal government. If we don't have a ton of people who are really really really upset about that - then we are in deep doo doo (to use the technical term).

Just Rush's sense of humor, Professor. Something utterly lacking in this president.

Translation: The president lied and the masses fell for it. We know what's good for you and by God - whether you like it or not - you're stuck with what we think you oughta have. Free choice? Abortion only.

The press is a mountain to climb. I contend that is the biggest hurdle conservatives and libertarians face in winning elections.

Beautiful vista, Keith.

I wish I could be around 75 years from now, to see the commentary on this. Well - perhaps with the glories of Obamacare, I'll live that long, Professor - LOL!!!

Thank God when I attended UW Madison it was not like this. The stirrings were beginning - but - nothing like this. Not sure whether to laugh - or weep - or both.

Indeed, Keith. I love the line "We will rue the day that Mr. Obama came to Washington the second time around." "Came to Washington"? It isn't like the guy woke up one day, and said, "Gee; think I'd like to keep on being president - so - I'll just show up." Millions like Seth Borg voted for him.... That is how he "came" to Washington again. They elected him. Maybe next time around, even liberals could be more careful and not fall for a guy who is better suited to be acting in Hollywood than on the world stage.

If some of these philosophers who happen to be women are indicative of the quality of thinking among them - then perhaps we are well served by having a lower percentage of female philosophers than male. Call me a bigot, if you wish. But it's the truth!

MLK Jr is my #1 American hero of the last century. An amazing man who did so much for our nation.

Keith - reading this letter made me almost lose my cookies on my laptop screen. You add WARNINGS to some of these posts!

Richard is exactly right. Good advice for ALL!

Growing up in Skokie, Illinois, the city with more Holocaust survivors than anywhere else, I knew many whose parents essentially lived through this. People like Schindler were incredible for saving the lives that they did - at risk to themselves.
