DIVIDED NATION: January 22, 2019 As the luminous Texas writer John Graves observed a few years back: “The Unco Guid and the Rigidly Righteous, in one or another not necessarily religious hue, dominate our time as shrilly as they ever dominated (Robbie) Burns’ Scotland. The conservative old and the arrogant young and the scratchily earnest of all ages are at one in this.”...

EXTREMES: January 14, 2019 One unremarked side effect of the uproar that goes by the name of Donald Trump is the hardening everywhere of hearts and positions.

CHRISTMAS: December 24, 2018 The religion, the faith, the belief-species owing its origin to the Babe of Bethlehem has experienced pangs and pains aplenty in the expiring year. Not necessarily in order: The mounting moral toll of revelations about clerical sexual abuse; the continued outflux of those who are bored, skeptical or, for one reason...

At issue this week...    PC Christmas As Cole Porter slyly reminds us: “In olden days a glimpse of stocking / Was looked on as something shocking / Now heaven knows / Anything goes ...” Well, you know, depending on the state of Puritan politics at a given moment. The Puritan habit of scolding — and gazing sourly...
