My Newswithviews Column, Nov. 4 (‘On the Road to Lunacy’)

Bing and Bob–could we go with them instead of with these idiots?

Where’s Bob Hope and Bing Crosby when you need ’em?

While truly major problems loom over us, needing to be addressed, we keep ourselves busy with stupid stuff. Abyssmally stupid stuff–like selling vegetarianism, shaping babies’ heads, and promoting transgender and abortion. It’s impossible to imagine anything stupider than a slogan like “Abortion is our future!”

On The Road to Lunacy

Yes, it’d make a pretty funny Bob & Bing “On the Road” movie, but in real life it’s not so funny. And most of it is done by nimrods with college “educations”.

Nothing’s all that funny when you have to pay for it–in more ways than one.

‘American Atheism, Vintage 1960’ (2014)

I was 11 years old in 1960 and wasn’t allowed to stay up on Friday nights to watch The Twilight Zone. So every Saturday, Bobby across the street would tell me what I’d missed. And I have a very vivid memory of him telling me about this episode, Long Live Walter Jameson.

American Atheism, Vintage 1960

I thought it was a cool story at the time; but now, very many years later, now that I’ve finally seen it–good grief: we let this into our homes?

The story, written by Charles Beaumont, is nothing less than full-blown atheism. And yet it went down without so much as a raised eyebrow. Was America’s Christianity already on such shaky ground?

Given everything that happened later on in the Sixties, I think we have to say, Yeah, it was.

We have to be better stewards of our heritage.
