Bass Reeves: Forgotten Hero of the Old West

I grew up on a steady diet of weekly television westerns: The Lone Ranger, Gunsmoke, The Rifleman, Bonanza, Big Valley, The Wild Wild West, and The High Chaparral were some of my favorites. Things were either right or wrong; there was no middle ground. All could be made right with the world within an hour. But after watching hundreds of episodes, I can honestly count on one hand the number of black gun-totting heroes that appeared on the small screen. At the time, it didn't bother me because I didn't know that men like Deputy U.S. Marshal Bass... Read More

"Some think to call a terrorist a terrorist is too harsh; Jack the Ripper a criminal worthy of death too un-redemptive, and this letter to you lacking love. For the naive, when you have crossed their path they will be wiser, and I pray for their protection."

Pastor of Trinity Baptist Church, Norman, Oklahoma,

When I was a little boy in the days after my father left us, I did my best to follow my older brother wherever he went, at least in his pre-motorcycle days when all it took was tennis shoes and determined stalking. We lived... Read More

“Where is God? ...Go to Him when your need is desperate, when all other help is vain, and what do you find? A door slammed in your face, and a sound of bolting and double-bolting on the inside. After that, silence.”– C.S. Lewis, after the death of his wife.

God is omni-present; but it seems every now and then He is omni-absent. The sign on the door says "Gone Fishing," the lights are out, the doorbell dings in an empty room, the No Vacancy sign is on . . . drive on down the road . . . alone. Yes, I know that is not true; He never leaves me; He never leaves you. He’s right there.

Wolviela has crawled out of her den from the hibernation called Grad school. Library school if you must know :) It also helps that I got a source of inspiration to write something.

Yesterday was Martin Luther King’s Day, and unlike most of the general population I had to work, but it was sometime in the evening driving home that I had the most interesting thought and it solidifies that animals are smarter and more intelligent that human beings.

For about the last year I’ve been the parent of a sweet, but stubborn Shiba Inu. Every weekend before he was fully inoculated we faithfully... Read More

España fue una de las cunas del catarismo. Precisamente en España vivieron los últimos Perfectos, la presencia de los cuales creaba la atmósfera de la inefable bondad y del servicio mutuo en el amor. Guilhem Belibaste, el último Perfecto, quemado por los inquisidores, predijo en el 1321 que al pasar 700 años el laurel reverdecería nuevamente. En el siglo XXI, los cielos han considerado llegar el tiempo para que esta profecía se cumpla. El Grial vuelve nuevamente a los que lo buscan. ¡El catarismo está vivo!

La perspectiva y la visión misterios de Juan De San Grial (gran profeta cataro... Read More

“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” -- Matthew 22:36-40

Christians do few things worse than share the love of Christ and the reality of healing and forgiveness with the sexually-disses among us. That would be the disoriented, the disappointed, the disturbed and the roundly discussed and often... Read More

A blast of frosty air greeted me as I stepped through the doorway and onto the landing of my soon to be prison. The damp darkness of the cement cellar walls enveloped me as my captors forced my descent down the musty stairs. Once at the bottom, a sudden and lingering chill came over my skin when the reality of my fate began to sink in. Brrrr. Did you feel that? Even as I sit here now, safely at home, on my computer, in my stuffy, overly warm office making that up- I don’t feel so stuffy and overly warm any more at all. I can imagine my hand or arm brushing against the cement walls... Read More
