The Bookworm Beat 11/19/17 — the illustrated edition

November 19, 2017 Bookworm 0

There’s something for everyone (at least everyone with sound common sense, an informed mind, and a good brain) in my latest illustrated edition. I had a post I wanted to write today, but haven’t yet figured out how to do it without violating someone’s privacy. So, while I wrestle with [Read More]

The Roy Moore drama escalates but I’m not convinced *UPDATED*

November 13, 2017 Bookworm 1

As the Roy Moore drama escalates, because I distrust those doing the escalating, the new information actually makes me more disposed to believe the judge. I’m watching with fascination the kill and then overkill with Roy Moore. The GOPers (especially McConnell, McCain, and Romney) are even more hysterical than the [Read More]

[VIDEO] The Left uses sex scandals to wage war against all men

November 13, 2017 Bookworm 0

The Left is using Hollywood sex scandals to paint all men as complicit, with the hope that guilt-ridden men remorsefully embrace Progressive ideology. When the sex scandals first came out of Hollywood, I have to admit to wallowing in schadenfreude. After years of seeing Hollywood’s premier Leftists use their unbelievably [Read More]

[VIDEO] Michael Medved tells the real story of the Pilgrims

November 13, 2017 Bookworm 0

If you’ve been paying attention to Progressive tales about the Pilgrims, you won’t be surprised to learn that just about everything they tell you is wrong. I’m reasonably well-versed in American history because I had the good fortune to learn it before the Left really got its tentacles into the [Read More]

Once again, a hypocrisy check, this time about Judge Roy Moore

November 12, 2017 Bookworm 1

The difference between Roy Moore’s situation and the Hollywood story, the unreliable accuser, and the WaPo’s manifest bias, means I currently believe Moore. Sorry for the long silence, but it’s been an all family, all the time few days, interspersed with a quick-turnaround legal research project. I’ve been a bit [Read More]

Katha Pollitt writes the feel-good article of the week

November 8, 2017 Bookworm 0

I’m not usually a person who revels in Schadenfreude, but I have to say that a primal scream from Katha Pollitt against Trump-land is incredibly gratifying. Katha Pollitt didn’t set out to write a feel-good article. In fact, she feels terrible — but it’s the reasons behind her feelings that [Read More]

[VIDEO] An outstanding salsa trio on Dancing With The Stars

November 7, 2017 Bookworm 1

Although I’ve been watching Dancing With The Stars this season, I haven’t blogged about it. This salsa, though, is worth writing about. Because this season of Dancing With The Stars coincided with a change in my migraine medicine, the slightly lower energy that change produced has meant that, while I’m [Read More]

A cursory look at some of the day’s most interesting news

November 6, 2017 Bookworm 0

Every day lately brings some interesting news. This post sums up a few of the top stories, along with my opinions about why they matter. I’m watching, fascinated, as events unfold in Saudi Arabia. I suspect Trump has a hand in it and I certainly hope the Crown Prince’s modernization push goes [Read More]

The Bookworm Beat 11/4/17 — Day of Rage edition

November 4, 2017 Bookworm 0

As I’m still groggy from fighting migraines, Wolf Howling wrote this Bookworm Beat, a glorious potpourri showing that the good guys are mostly winning. Today was supposed to be a big day, with Antifa raging in the streets and less-violently inclined Leftists screaming at the heavens. When I search for [Read More]
