Below are what I believe are my most note-worthy and interesting articles over the last month and a half.

Below are a few general rules that I’ve given myself as I’ve put my nose to the grindstone of the all important task of planning my family’s road trip playlist. After the rules, I’ve included some sample songs from my family’s playlist and my reason(s) for including them.

It’s time for another round of links to some of my favorite PJ Media articles. Below are links to eight articles that I’ve written over the last couple of weeks. Some of them have proven more controversial than I anticipated while writing them. However, some of them met my expectations for controversy, especially my article about evolution that has over 600 comments, many of them angry.

I write between 25 to 50 articles a month for PJ Media. In the past, to help my blog readers keep up, I used to link to the articles. I don’t remember why, but for some reason I stopped doing that.

The thing is, over the last few months I’ve written some articles that I’m proud of and would like to share with my blog readers. Below are fifteen links to articles that I’ve written over the last six months or so that I believe are worthy of your time. Using the comment section, please let me know which articles you find most interesting and/or compelling. Thank you for reading.
