The estimates are necessarily fuzzy because biologists still know precious little abou... Read More...

October 19, 2010 17:46 by Bradi


  • Opening: I was struggling toward the climax of my none-too-polished sermon that Sunday night back in 1972 when disaster struck. It was both pathetic and laughable all at once.

The Brooklyn Tabernacle—this woeful church that my father-in-law had coaxed me into pasturing—consisted of a shabby two-story building in the middle of a downtown block on Atlantic Avenue. The sanctuary could hold fewer than two hundred people—not that we required anywhere nea... Read More...

From reading mainstream coverage of Venezuela, one is often left with the impression that President Chávez is the sole mastermind behind all that is taking place in the country, with or without the support of the Venezuelan people. Chávez has cert... Read More...
