Honesty is it truly missing?

On my drive into the office this morning I got to thinking about how much I hear these various phrases in conversation:

To be honest



To tell you the truth

and I started wondering if we've declined so much as a society that we now have to advise people when we are making a factual or truthful statement. Have we become so good at lying to one another that it is the rule rather than the exception?

Is it so easy to speak in flasehoods and… Continue

NCAA Football

I meant to post something a few weeks ago, but real life interfered and now I'm behind.

I love college football. Big school, small schools, intermediate schools. The fans at the games are usually pretty enthusiastic, and the players themselves are trying hard, at the very worst. Only a small proportion of the players will ever make it into the professional ranks, and most of them know it. For those players, they know that college football is, at best, a way to get their degree paid… Continue

Napoleonic Card Game?

Is there any interest out there in a card game of the campaigns of Napoleon?

The Kuomintang Strikes Back!

The BBC today reported on a newly revealed postscript to the expulsion of Chiang Kai-shek and his Nationalists to Taiwan at the end of the Chinese Civil War in 1949. It should not be a surprise that Generalissimo Chiang longed to return to the Mainland. What might be surprising is how far along the planning was, as late as the 1960's. The People's Republic suffered a severe famine, due to Mao Zedong's rapid modernization and the… Continue
