August 19, 2015

      I saw this graphic on Facebook.. had to share it. Can police be trained to such a degree that they will never act in a way deemed unseemly or unprofessionally when they are forced to deal with untrained, feral human animals?

PERSISTENCE, GRIT AND CONFIDENCE TRIUMPH OVER INTELLECT AND TALENT

August 19, 2015

I was doing research for an article on the ethical duty to develop strong moral character. I had recently read Lionel Trilling’s essay The Moral Duty To Be Intelligent. Re-reading notes and articles I’ve saved over the years, hundreds of them…maybe thousands…it’s so much easier to do with a computer… I located material written by […]

August 19, 2015

I just read this posting on Character Building Project, the website of my friend, Michael J. Kerrigan. See www.characterbuildingproject.com The forces intent on destroying the individual are pervasive, unrelenting, heavily financed and morally perverse. To me, the money quote of the brief article is: If young people come to believe that making something of themselves […]

Schools, the Moral Duty to be Intelligent and the Cancer of Relativism

August 5, 2015

While leapfrogging around the Internet a few weeks ago, probably in my incessant effort to avoid accomplishing anything, I found this essay: Restoring Our K–12 Schools by M. D. Aeschliman, published October 18, 2013. http://www.nationalreview.com/node/361574/print I read the article and was intrigued, intrigued enough to buy Leon Wieseltier’s anthology of Lionel Trilling’s essays, The Moral Obligation […]

Success: A Spirit of Inquiry and a Culture of Curiosity

July 16, 2015

I just read this article by Rachel Sugar about super star Hollywood producer Brian Grazer. I had to share it. http://jobs.aol.com/articles/2015/07/15/brian-grazer-superpower-shaped-his-success/?SiteID=cbaolcompromotion_july_57&icid=maing-grid7%7Cmain5%7Cdl9%7Csec1_lnk3%26pLid%3D1453732511 Most important sentence: Luckily for the rest of us, everyone has the potential to be curious. The skill, as Grazer sees it, isn’t having curiosity — it’s using it.  And that  requires effort. “You have to […]

The Poor and the Imperative of a Public Moral Culture

July 14, 2015

To me, the article’s vital  message transcends comparing the […]

SPENCER TILLMAN SPEAKS ABOUT FAMILY, HUMILITY, LEADERSHIP AND GRIT

June 29, 2015

He wove a rich tapestry of football experience, family, religious faith and business success into an engaging and uplifting talk. Not easy to do. He did it. Mr. Tillman is a man […]
