VIDEO: 11-year-old Indians fan styles for Miguel Cabrera
By Dan Calabrese Wednesday, June 24, 2015
I sometimes think it’s not fair that I’m a Detroiter. Not fair to the rest of you, that is. Oh sure, we have the shootings, the bankruptcy, the corruption . . . but we also have the pleasure of enjoying Miguel Cabrera on a daily basis. Not only is he the most amazing hitter I’ve ever seen - probably the best hitter in Tigers history with all due respect to Messrs. Cobb, Greenberg, Kaline and Trammell - but he’s also an amazingly joyful human being.
Scott Walker and Academic Tenure
By Bruce Walker Friday, June 12, 2015
Scott Walker is advocating a reform in Wisconsin which could have a more profound impact on America than anything we have seen in a long time. Establishment leftism depends upon institutions which support and promote its philosophy and agenda using our money. The most obnoxious offender is Big Education, especially tenured professors who mock our values even as they rob our pockets.
Why a certain 14-year-old’s traditional school career ended today
By Dan Calabrese Friday, June 5, 2015
I try not to wade too much into the use of this forum to tell personal stories, because I’m sure you really don’t want to know that much about me. But I also thought you might find some insight and inspiration from a decision we’ve made that today takes my son in a very unconventional - and we’re convinced, very positive - direction with his education and his life.

By Robert L. Rosebrock Wednesday, June 3, 2015
LOS ANGELES - On January 3rd, Rafer Johnson—the legendary Olympic Decathlon Champion and iconic leader of major Civil and Human Rights issues over the past 60 years— spoke before the Los Angeles Neighborhood Council Coalition (LANCC) and declared:
VIDEO: Parents walk out as principal rips police in graduation speech
By Dan Calabrese Monday, June 1, 2015
Maybe we should just do away with graduation ceremonies altogether. If anyone says something worthwhile at one of them, the result is so much shrieking it hardly seems worth it. And the flip side of that proposition is that graduation ceremonies give a voice to knuckleheads like this guy, who thinks it’s his big moment in the sun to rip the police for their psychopathic propensity to murder black men:
Is it Time to ‘Abolish the Family’?
By Matt Barber Sunday, May 31, 2015
I appreciate it when leftists get off script, dispatch with the propagandist talking points and say what’s really on their minds.
It’s time to shut down campus shouter-downers
By Guest Column Thursday, May 28, 2015
MADISON, Wisconsin—With increasing frequency, especially on college campuses, speakers presenting unpopular views—or views unpopular with a vocal minority of the audience—are being disrupted or “shouted down” until they leave the stage. This has happened at my own campus and many others.
Saved from a world of negativity
By Herman Cain Tuesday, May 26, 2015
Some days we get callers to the Herman Cain Radio Show that are not quite connecting all the dots, and are in denial of the failed policies of the Obama Administration. They usually spend their minute on Rapid Fire accusing me of being anti-Obama, denying the truth, and bringing up any and every past failure of Republicans and conservatives.
The Jefferson Davis ‘Memorial Day’ Funeral Train

Five-Year-Old Boy with a Lesson for the Entire World—And a Lingering Question
By Rev. Michael Bresciani Thursday, May 21, 2015
The news is rife with sad stories, tragedies and other matters not just hard to ingest, but hard just to watch.
Like a shooting star or a beautiful sighting of the occasional firefly on a summer night, a story or clip will flash across the waves of the worst behaviors of mankind. It is these kinds of stories that spark the depths of the human heart, where, although deeply buried and desensitized, hope, kindness and the better nature of decent people resides. We may be brought to tears, inspired or re-warmed by the best things humans can do instead of the worst.

Please note this Boston U prof who detests white men (but do not fire her or demand an apology)
By Dan Calabrese Thursday, May 14, 2015
I present to you, Saida Grundy, an assistant professor of sociology and African American studies at Boston University - and apparently quite the piece of work insofar as she wants more open discussion about what a gigantic problem white males are on college campuses. But I also rise in defense of Assistant Prof. Grundy, because I believe she should suffer no consequence and pay no price for saying what she said.
Need more Needles?

Always! At least my dearest thinks so. Of course, I’m referring to knitting needles, what else?
