  3. Brett Kavanaugh

    Has anyone here been following the events regarding the US Supreme Court hearings? After watching both Ford and Kavanaugh, I find it difficult to imagine Kavanaugh on the SCOTUS. Kavanaugh's behavior strikes me as that of a guilty person, and also that of an alcoholic. Also, the antics of...

  20. What Does the Word "Hero" Mean?

    When I called Captain Phillips a hero for saying; "take me rather than my crew", I wasn't able to say what I wanted to say.
