Weir Only Human I guess, depending where they live or what education level they have, there may still be some bozos that discriminate against people based on their race.

Weir Only Human Robert Browning, the great English poet and playwright wrote, “A man’s reach should exceed his grasp, or what’s a heaven for?” I take that to mean, if we are to be truly happy we must not limit our challenges, we must challenge our limits. Throughout our lives we face challenges in many forms; from simply getting through …

Weir Only Human Every time I think I’ve heard the most outrageous example of cultural decline I can imagine, another one emerges to fracture any connection to common sense reasoning. The latest illustration of how distorted our educational institutions have become is the news that West Point High, a West Point, Virgina high school has fired a teacher because he …

Weir Only Human Sixty-three years ago this week, there was a day that began just like every other day in the life of the diminutive black lady in a southern city, where people of her color suffered indignities on a daily basis. It was December 1, 1955, and the struggle for civil rights was in its infancy. But it wasn’t …

Weir Only Human I’m not old enough to remember the mood of the country during World War 2, but America’s sentiments can be readily understood by viewing any of the movies made during the war against the Axis powers in Europe.

Weir Only Human How many times in our lives have we noticed that some people are above the law? As much as we’d like to believe otherwise, our experiences reveal that life in definitely not fair.

Weir Only Human We live in an era in which logic is often turned on its head and politics seems to control all thought processes. It doesn’t matter what you’re actually thinking when you speak or act, what matters is what others think you’re thinking.

Weir Only Human When I hear words like “Jews are the anti-Christ, the Satanic Jews, Jews are chosen by Satan, Judaism is a gutter religion,” and many more virulent anti-Semitic comments, I know exactly who’s speaking. There’s only one person in this country evil enough to utter such hate-filled diatribe, while knowing full well that he has immunity from public …
