Essentially, the article was insulting to the asset-challenged and there was confusion regarding who are the poor and who are […]
So apparently rich people are all nutrition experts and fitness gurus . . . while the poor, God bless ‘em, are lazy couch potatoes who spend their days munching salty chips in front of reality TV shows. I got home from work a few days ago and discovered the article 20 Things the Rich do […]
The blogosphere is abuzz again with another controversy which I consider trivial rather than “significant”. This is why i shifted into semi-retirement. OK. Mark Driscoll.

Heaps more talks. I need to dig around and upload them. And if you happen to have any recordings of my talks them please let me know so I can put them here.
I am not accepting as many invitations to speak as I used to but the occasional worthy event can tempt me. Money is not an issue. I have never requested an honorarium. But a gift, or a couch to crash on, or some help towards the airfare is appreciated [although not mandatory].
