The Last Stop on Your Earthly Ride

Posted on 11 October 2010

Let’s pretend for a moment that I’m the compassionate, slightly ghoulish son who inherited his father’s business in the hit series Six Feet Under.  Let’s pretend also, that the cosmos, or perhaps your doctor, has tipped you off to the fact that you aren’t long for this world.  Gently, but with a salesman’s deft touch, […]

When it becomes incumbent upon a society to instill what should be innate critical thinking skills in its students, that society is headed down the log flume to hell.  But when those children grow up bereft of critical thinking skills, that society has landed smack dab in the middle of Satan’s barbecue.
