Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger

on September 19th, 2017 by admin

We all remember the day when US Airways flight 1549 landed on the Hudson River on January 15, 2009.  That was not a good time for me or for the whole country.  I had just been laid off from my banking job, and was very fearful of the future.  This was at the height of […]

Emily Brontë’s Poetry

on May 30th, 2017 by admin

I am a big fan of the Brontë sisters novels.  However I had no idea Emily Brontë wrote poetry.  It wasn’t until after watching an excellent PBS movie about the sisters called To Walk Invisible that I was introduced to her poetry.  I was able to find an old edition of her poems at my local […]

Hillbilly Culture and America’s Future

on October 18th, 2016 by admin

I just finished reading an intriguing memoir about a segment of American society that is virtually ignored.  Writer J.D. Vance chronicles his life story in Hillbilly Elegy.  Vance highlights the terrible consequences of bad ideas passed from generation to generation.  These bad ideas include eschewing education, using violence as a means to settle disagreements, drug […]

The Boston Marathon Terrorist Attacks

on April 24th, 2013 by admin

The aftermath of the terrorist attacks at the Boston Marathon symbolizes the massive evasion perpetuated by the Obama Administration.  This was an intelligence failure from top to bottom-again.  As with all Islamic terrorism, the bombings at the marathon were an attack on hard work, dedication, success, and achievement.  In short, anything related to Western civilization.  […]

The Power Of Books.

on May 3rd, 2012 by admin

Via American Thinker, I came across an article about a controversy that occurred earlier this year.  A young girl named Jada Williams, a student in the Rochester Public School system, was inspired by an assignment to read Frederick Douglass’ autobiography Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave, to write an essay indicting […]

Richard Wright’s American Hunger.

on March 22nd, 2012 by admin

Richard Wright wrote a sequel to his seminal autobiography Black Boy.  Wright had intended American Hunger to be published in conjunction with Black Boy.  It was published separately in 1977.  I was introduced to Wright in my early teens, but American Hunger escaped my radar.  This was a painful book to read.  Wright was desperately […]

Dr. Gisella Perl, A True Heroine.

on June 1st, 2011 by admin

It has taken me eight long years to find Dr. Perl’s harrowing autobiography, I Was A Doctor in Auschwitz.  I cannot understand why this book is not being sold in bookstores!  Thanks to Amazon.com and its comments section I was able to contact the publisher and purchase the book.  Since childhood, I’ve found inspiration from […]

Progressive Education’s Destruction Of The Mind.

on March 1st, 2011 by admin

I just finished reading a disturbing autobiography.  Writer Walter Kirn discusses his traumatic educational experiences in Lost In The Meritocracy: The Undereducation Of An Overachiever.  Describing his life through the prism of education, Kirn tells a story of incompetency and profound anti-intellectualism that nearly destroyed him.  Kirn transfers to Princeton University where he is exposed […]

Inside The Playboy Mansion.

on January 31st, 2011 by admin

It’s time for some light reading.  I came across an interesting book that gives insight to Hugh Hefner’s Playboy.  Written by a former girlfriend, Izabella St. James, she calls her book Bunny Tales: Behind Closed Doors at the Playboy Mansion.  But I want to focus on the author, a woman who is highly educated (she […]

Happy New Year! Will We Finally Face Reality?

on January 4th, 2010 by admin

Happy New Year! In light of the protests in Iran and the aborted terrorist attack in Detroit, I wanted to direct your attention to a couple of books that will shed light on the coming revolution in Iran and the problem of Islam itself.  The first book, Not Without My Daughter is a shocking story of an American […]
