Recently I pointed out how spontaneity undermines self-absorption, how the leap of faith allowing individuals the illusion their perceptions define truth is undone when obsessive self-reflection is abandoned.
I was driving down the road the other day and on the radio comes this commercial for this super-duper miracle diet plan. This woman is recounting her life story, about how as a kid she was picked on and kidded because she was fat. Now as an adult she has lost 80 pounds in a matter of months and her whole life has been turned around.
Well, I've messed up again, it seems.
With presidential candidate Howard Dean facing a shrinking lead in New Hampshire polls, many are counting him out in tomorrow's primary. Dean finished a surprising third in the Iowa caucus last week, and Sen. John Kerry is hoping to capitalize on his momentum tomorrow.
Our government's system for granting the privilege of driving to citizens is a bloated and inefficient mess. It would take a team of excavators countless years to remove the puss that festers in the boil of our DMV, traffic courts and insurance regulators.
Judge not, that ye be not judged" (Matt. 7:1). A valuable admonition; one I too often find myself forgetting.

In this week's issue of Time Magazine there was an article concerning the piracy of movies via "camcording" and hi-speed Internet. It seems the big Hollywood studios are cracking down and have done everything short of hiring Tom Ridge, director of Homeland Security, as their official adviser. Studios are now able to track film prints to specific theaters and pinpoint where this great film robbery is taking place. I applaud Hollywood's efforts, and not because I love the suits and neckties that run the studios, but because I respect the art form and its intended form of exhibition.
I spent last weekend glued to TV Land as much as I could given that I was living in a motel, traveling back to Aiken to prepare for a move to Fayetteville. The reason? Carol Burnett, of course. The classic television network has brought the comic genius to its line-up of nostalgic viewing and making me happy in the process.
