Racking My Brain

Lingua Franca

I am supposed to write a Newswithviews column today, but I don’t know what to write about. Scanning the news of the week so far, we find an embarrassment of poverty. I mean, do I really want to write about drag queen shows at Nellis Air Force Base being held up to us as morale boosters and part of military readiness? How far could I go with that without tossing my cookies? If we ever have to fight a war against someone who can fight back, we’re done for.

I notice in the cartoon that the poor brain is positioned where the 8-ball would normally be. As Edgar Rice Burroughs once said, to be behind the 8-ball and out on a limb at the same time is very bad business.

Look, I’ve got to go pick up my laundry. If you’ve got any suggestions, I’ll read them as soon as I get back. And then I really must write something.

  1. You could write on guilt, especially white guilt, and how it is behind the success of CRT. The blood of Jesus cleanses us from all guilt, and we are all one in Christ so no distinctions between the races and the sexes.

  2. Thewhiterabbit has an excellent suggestion. I have seen nothing but discouragement in the articles (or should I say headlines- I rarely read the whole thing) but one stood out to me this morning, and that was that some school was threatening a student with failure if he/she didn’t shut up about Bible truth and stop saying the text book was wrong. NOw, that really tears it.
