I thought I would sound erudite and educated in the old-fashioned way today and try out some Latin on you. We’re all familiar with e pluribus unum but how many know what it means? Not too long ago I ran into Quid omnes tangit debet while working on the iconic Dominican priest Bartolomé de las […]

There’s a Hispanic Living in My House

Years ago, when growing up in Lima, Peru I knew more or less that I was a little gringuito. That’s gringo in the diminutive or little gringo. If you still don’t know what a “gringo” is, that’s what we Americans are called in Latin America. It’s a common term in the Spanish and Portuguese-speaking world […]

White Racists, 2022 Update Over the past several years, the University of Alabama’s Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion vigorously denied it teaches white racism is inevitable, endemic, and cannot be changed. But is this what they teach? A couple of summers ago DEI at UA hosted a “common read” of the New York Times […]

What Were You Doing in 1965?

April 8, 2022

What Were You Doing in 1965? Over the past few months, I have read a lot of newspaper articles—most on the front pages—about the marches from Selma to Montgomery in 1965. In fact, I didn’t read much more in my local newspaper other than articles celebrating Black History Month. Which is fine. This is, after […]

Social Justice

March 22, 2022

“Social justice” is a phrase bandied about these days, largely by politicians and idealogues of the Left when trying to come to grips with what they believe and espouse. Those of the Right also have their challenges when defining terms like liberty and freedom. Most of these words like justice, freedom, liberty, etc. have lots […]

The Bernardo de Gálvez Building at The University of Alabama

March 16, 2022

A few years ago, we entered a renaming spree at the University of Alabama. I noticed it when someone suggested we needed to dump the name of Morgan Hall named after John Tyler Morgan. Morgan was an old white racist, and it was a disgrace to have a building named after him, so went the […]

The “Great Resignation”

March 16, 2022

0

“The Underside of the ‘Great Resignation’” by Mene Ukueberuwa appeared on Jan. 22-23 in the “Opinion” column of the WSJ and I was curious. What in the world was the “Great Resignation?” Perhaps it was someone fed up with their job who resigned to answer the call to something better? Bubba just had a “great […]

Revising History: The Not-So-Subtle Ways We Interpret the Past

February 8, 2022

We play with our children with words. “Roses are red, violets are blue, sugar is sweet, and so are you.” We learn, in fact, to communicate. Then something happens along the way. Someone says, “hey that’s not always true, we have white roses,” or something equally silly that challenges what the words say. Some of […]
