Dean Smith and Wallace Wade: Teachers of Life, Not Just ‘Coaches’

How were Dean Smith and Wallace Wade most alike? ‘They saw themselves as ‘teachers’ first and foremost’. ‘What’s that you say? 2 of the most successful collegiate coaches in the history of college sports in America thought of themselves as ‘teachers’ first and ‘coaches’ second?

Race, Ferguson, Assault Statistics and Perspective

One of the toughest things to do in America today is to have a ‘conversation’ about race. If you are white, you are almost immediately labeled as a ‘racist’ if you disagree with any of the statements by activists such as Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson. If you are white, you are told that you […]

Legislative Supremacy and Suing the Executive in the White House

I am not a constitutional scholar. But I have been around enough of them to know what they are and what they might say from time to time. I am not a big fan of President Obama. I thought there was a slight glimmer of hope the more I watched re-runs of his truly great […]
