Beware of scary situations.

So much of life is about whether or not one’s parents took care of one. And yet it’s so hard for the parents to know what the right thing to do is. Well, we are all rocked in God’s arms if we want to be.
Maybe even if we don’t want to be.
Back in L.A. Now, this is pitiful. I am hobbling around like the old man I am. I fell because one of my wife’s cats tripped me and the fall contused my right knee. The pain when I walk or swim is cruel. I had an MRI today and confirmed the injury. By the way, I loved being in that MRI tube with all of the loud noise. I don’t know why, but I loved it.
Then Alex and I drove down to the desert. Why not? We made fantastic time because we didn’t start until 9 PM. No traffic at all. For a while we were going 120. I swam in my pool when we got there but my knee hurt so much I could barely get out of the pool. Scary. Weird.
I took my immense quantities of fiber and watched very old episodes of Perry Mason and The Untouchables on ME-TV. They are great drama. Nothing high tech, but great insights into human nature. How I loved Perry Mason. I wish he were my lawyer.
My life has changed a lot lately: limping pitifully, in litigation, it’s not what I precisely wanted it to be right now. But I pray a lot — constantly — and it will all work out.
I am reading Anne Applebaum’s book about the Gulag. To think that EVEN NOW in Hollywood, the horrid people in Hollywood who were on Stalin’s side are considered heroes — it’s amazing. Unbelievable. Stupid, stupid people.
But wow, am I grateful to live in America. I have nothing to complain about. It’s all glittering and wonderful in my life, sitting outside for a moment watching jet contrails in the moonlight in a free country. I think I’ll have some more fiber. What the heck. Fiber all around!
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
