  • Continuing Mystery Of Missing Flight 370

    Continuing Mystery Of Missing Flight 370
    Glib use of the word globalization leads us to believe that humans have overrun the whole planet. We haven't. Vast areas remain unexplored and inaccessible. Chief among these are dark abyssal plains beneath sunlit seas. And of these plains, the most...
  • Snow Drifts Raise My Cosmic Consciousness

    Snow Drifts Raise My Cosmic Consciousness
    Last week, deep drifts of cold snow buried my domestic universe. Within them were specks of dust from treated roads and residues of carbon from exhaust. Flinging this stuff around my inner space with a shovel reminded me of last year's noteworthy comet...

    Can 'Realistic Romance' Still Be Hot And Steamy?

  • The Great Climate Change Denial Industry

    The Great Climate Change Denial Industry
    Last month, I had the displeasure of attending a lecture-slide show titled "Climate Change in the American Mind." My unhappiness came not from its presenter — Anthony Leiserowitz, director of the Yale Project on Climate Change Communication —...
  • Boy Scout Leaders' Actions Top Stupid List

    Boy Scout Leaders' Actions Top Stupid List
    Last year, I kept a file of stories about the most stupid events covered by the national media. I'm sharing one with hope it may help prevent a copycat from appearing in 2015. My favorite contagion of stupidity began when some macho Boy Scout leaders...
  • Being Grateful For Non-Material Riches

    Being Grateful For Non-Material Riches
    "I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual. It is surprising how contented one can be with nothing definite — only a sense of existence. ... O how I laugh when I think of my vague indefinite riches. No run on my bank can...
