    1. Hunting Hunting was a hugely important skill for much of human history, but in light of the rise of cheap and readily available factory-farmed meat, hunting’s relationship to the food we actually eat has disappeared for the overwhelming majority of the population. If you grew up in a rural area, there’s a good chance you learned to shoot game at some point, but as much as many contemporary guys fantasize about being able to kill a wild animal and eat it (Mark Zuckerberg, anyone?), particularly if you live in a big city, there’s really not much real-world benefit to...

    Mine eyes do fail with tears, my bowels are troubled, my liver is poured upon the earth, for the destruction of the daughter of my people; because the children and the sucklings swoon in the streets of the city. They say to their mothers, Where is corn and wine? when they swooned as the wounded in the streets of the city, when their soul was poured out into their mothers’ bosom.(Lamentations 2:11-12)The United States of America has long considered herself “the land of the free and the home of the brave”, for she has an incredibly honorable martial history, and...
  • It's Not Hateful To Say That Bruce Jenner Is Not A Woman

    This past Friday night, I tweeted out, “My heart goes out to Bruce Jenner, & when he says, ‘I am a woman,’ I hear him saying, ‘I am deeply confused & hurting.’ Let's pray for him!” The responses to this tweet were as ugly and profane as anything I have ever seen. Why the extreme and even irrational hostility? Some of the tweets included these gems: "f--- you you disgusting saliva gerbil" (to be honest, I’ve never been called that before) "you cranky scheming mustachio'd clown" (this was also a new one) “F--- YOU. I don’t have the patience for...

    Last night’s interview with Bruce Jenner by Diane Sawyer on ABC’s 20/20 turned out to be very revealing … in a much different way than many thought. By this time, a relentless series of media reports had made it quite clear that Jenner had embraced a transgender identity, at least privately. The big reveal turned out to be that Jenner also identifies as a conservative Republican: When Sawyer asked if Jenner cheered when Obama became the first president to even say the word “transgender” in a State of the Union address, the 65-year-old replied that he “would certainly give...

    Bruce Jenner was once hailed as the greatest athlete in the world and later became a reality television star with one of the world's most famous families. Now, the former Olympian is revealing a secret that has caused him turmoil for decades. "For all intents and purposes, I'm a woman," Jenner told ABC's Diane Sawyer in an exclusive interview that aired Friday in a special two-hour edition of ABC News' "20/20." "People look at me differently. They see you as this macho male, but my heart and my soul and everything that I do in life -- it is part...

    President Barack Obama introduced first lady Michelle Obama at the annual White House Easter Egg Roll as “the one truly in charge” and the “powerhouse” of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. “I want to wish everybody a wonderful Easter. And we are so thrilled that all of you could join us here today,” Obama said Monday on the South Lawn at the White House. “My job is very simple. It is to introduce the powerhouse of the White House, the one truly in charge, as Malia, Sasha and Bo all know: the first lady of the United States, Michelle Obama!”

    There's a not so funny side to the thoroughbred who could win The Triple Crown. AP Photo Unlike Secretariat and other superstar sires, Funny Cide is a gelding. That means he can't reproduce, costing his owners millions of dollars in stud fees and ending a champion's lineage. But a scientist who recent helped clone a racing mule believes Funny Cide could probably buck the odds right now. "I feel quite confident that technically it can be done. It will be a natural extension now that we've cloned the mule," said Dirk Vanderwall, assistant professor in the Department of Animal and...
