If you’re anything like me, the phrase “defund the police” certainly gets your attention. It’s a hot button in society at the moment, and is at least one proposed way to reduce racial disparities in policing.
With that being said, I absolutely want everyone to be treated...
I was at a truck show recently when a driver, obviously distraught, approached me with a question. It turns out the driver’s truck had been broken into over the weekend, and he wanted to know what was going to happen with getting his belongings replaced.
The truck was parked next to his h...
Those of you that read my columns may remember that I recently wrote on free speech and social media. As I mentioned then, I am a BIG free speech guy and feel strongly that no idea should be free from scrutiny, criticism or mockery. As I also said then, an unexamined thought or belief is not worth h...
Throughout the course of these columns, I have discussed the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights (amendments 1-10) and the additional amendments. Ever since I memorized the Preamble to the Constitution (big shout-out here to Saturday mornings and the “Schoolhouse Rock” preamble song!),...

I am not sure why I feel the need to tell you all that, other than to let you know that it is fresh on my mind. I understand that the mere fact that the tit...
Believe it or not, I actually like being an attorney. Granted, some days I like it a lot more than others, but I think is that probably true with any profession.
I get to interact with people — help them solve problems and see a little justice served. And, I get to say things like, &ldquo...
Let’s get this out of the way up front: I am a big free speech guy. I mean BIG. I believe that no idea should be free from scrutiny, criticism or mockery. An unexamined thought or belief is not really worth having.
When you combine that with my slightly dark sense of humor and contrarian ...
Thanks goodness it is finally here. Election Day! I am writing this article on the morning of November 3rd and I am the happiest I have been in a quite some time.
Why am I so happy? I am happy because the election is finally coming to an end. I have grown so sick of all the personal attac...
