Two For The Price Of None

Two articles were added today to the Homnick canon by a pair of fine Editors. The one over at Jewish World Review may anger some by its willingness to concede the unlikeliness of Roe vs. Wade ever being overturned. A mordant critic might even compare it to conceding Gaza before a peace treaty has been signed, a comparison that would surely leave me devastated and distraught. But I am very concerned about that old bugaboo of the passionate - 'the ideal is the enemy of the possible' - thwarting our ability to get the Constitution somewhat righted.

Over at the American Spectator, I identify an important "unexamined premise", the idea that our ancestors' lives have a relationship to our own and that our lives, in turn, are linked (beyond the technical laying of their groundwork) to the lives of our descendants. In a brief way, I allude to an important philosophical/theological principle which I dubbed (not sure if this is original): "Time is horizontal."

And all this is FREE. (Well, kinda free; if I ever publish a book and you don't buy a copy, I will be mortally offended.)

It appears the move to registered posters hasn't stemmed the spam as well as had been hoped.

Tlaloc, are you trying to minimize my fan mail stats?

No not at all, but if you like these kinds of things I have a property you may be interested in down in Florida...

Is it in a development called Glengarry Farms? (Perk up Mamet fans.)

Will Pacino sell me a Lemmon?

I figured Roe wouldn't be overturned because the marriage of deeply religious middle America and giant soulless corporations couldn't survive it. Why deliver, when a promise to deliver will serve much better?
