Foxes Herald Nature’s Resurgence in Suburban New Jersey

For most of my life the only time I saw a red fox it was probably a raccoon. They have those same glow-in-the-headlights silvery eyes.

But a few years ago, I began to see a once-rare piece of roadkill with greater frequency. No matter how flattened the rest of the fox was, it’s bushy-tail would blow around in the highway draft of cars and trucks as they raced past.

I assumed the ...

A Failsafe in a World of Falling Safes

I subscribe to the “Falling Safe” philosophy of life.

A person walks down a city street, perhaps inexplicably happy or modestly content, or maybe consumed by the routines of their day or bothered by life’s little annoyances.

High above them, in the upper reaches of a skyscraper under construction, work is being done. A crane is lifting beams or huge HVAC units, glass ...

“ The End of the American Century”

The above title has been listed with a number of journals and other perspectives.  This one above comes from The Atlantic!

Stop Playing Along with the PC Police and Stand-Up for Italians

I am writing to you in response to Glen Rock's proposal to make Columbus Day a new day in Indigenous People's Day, and effectively white-washing history for a false narrative that destroys one of the biggest contributions an Italian has given the Western World.

Christopher Columbus, despite his faults, should be celebrated for his discovery of America over 500 years ago, not cast aside ...
