    The Problem with Blackmail – Thought of the Day

    This Sony hack and media frenzy around the un-release of The Interview this Christmas Day has got me thinking. The hackers have now sent Sony a new message thanking them for cancelling the release of their movie “The Interview” and saying that they will keep all of Sony’s stolen intellectual property to themselves unless the…

  • Why Gay Matters

    It’s tiresome to hear again and again in the news about so and so coming out as gay or lesbian. There are three main ways to react to this news (spoiler alert: only one of these reactions is worth talking about): You don’t care if people are gay, straight, or anywhere in between. You’re happy…

That being said, I thought it would be interesting for me (and hopefully for you) to look back at where I came from, and how it…

How in the world could anybody not see that as the same thing?…

    I’ve been told throughout my life that I don’t have many friends. I’m certainly not one to mind being characterized in that way, but I started wondering if that is actually true, or even if there is a tiny bit of truth to a statement of that nature. I’m sure there are lots of people…

    I have written before on the idea that we can all learn very important life lessons from our parents, and how it is important to let our elders influence and shape our relationships and understanding of the world. I made the argument here that there is no real need to take what our role models say…
