The complete lack of evidence is the surest sign that the conspiracy is working

Conspiracy Theories Everyone I meet seems prone to imagine conspiracies.  There are always the flashy ones like, "9/11 was an inside job" or "The moon landing was fake," and then there are the more grounded ones where [Fill In The Blank Group] is manipulating [Fill In The Blank System] for some agenda, secret or otherwise.  … Continue reading The complete lack of evidence is the surest sign that the conspiracy is working

House M.D. Finale

I have loved a lot of television shows over the years.  Stone cold classics like The Wire, Breaking Bad and Mad Men; cultishly beloved comedies like Arrested Development and Community (yay for a 4th season! #sixseasonsandamovie; nay for no Dan Harmon!); and plenty of other shows that are less officially cool but still had compelling characters, … Continue reading House M.D. Finale

In Support of Jessica Ahlquist

I recently wrote on the prayer in school debate.  My opinion on it, in my mind, seems pretty … Continue reading In Support of Jessica Ahlquist

You Got Your Gay Marriage Debate in My Prayer in School Debate

This video has been making the rounds, so chances are you've seen it, no matter where you stand on the issue of gay marriage (whether you're for it or wrong). I don't want to focus on that aspect of this video too much, though, because I've already written extensively on this topic. I will say … Continue reading You Got Your Gay Marriage Debate in My Prayer in School Debate
