Lollygagging and dilly-dallying: The Art of Procrastination

Here’s a story I’ve never told.

Word nerds rejoice as Merriam-Webster adds 370 new words

For many word nerds, the Merriam-Webster Dictionary is America’s dictionary. It settled arguments during Scrabble games. It was used to hold the door open on windy days. It taught us how to spell naughty words. If you don’t love Merriam-Webster, then you hate America.

The greater trial

I cry to you, O God, but you don’t answer. I stand before you, but you don’t even look. You have become cruel toward me. You use your power to persecute me…If only someone would listen to me! Look I will sign my name to my defense. Let the Almighty answer me… — Job 30 – 31

Karen and Chad are ruining restaurants with their rudeness

Some of you forgot your mama’s manners, and it shows.

Lingering effects of COVID on work; Indiana’s state response was almost wholly focused on the wellbeing of Hoosiers

It has been two and a half years since the COVID pandemic pushed the United States into recession. The national economy remains burdened by the pandemic, particularly in labor markets. While the unemployment rate is low, levels of total employment and labor force participation have failed to return to pre-COVID levels. New data is beginning to offer a better understanding of why that is the case.

Baseball, nostalgia and the Cincinnati Reds

One of the best parts about baseball is the nostalgia. The stories of the greats and the not-so-greats. The once-in-a-lifetime plays and the blunders that fans will talk about for years. I’m not interested in the statistics and the numbers; I love the stories, the achievements and the banter between the announcers.

Common ground

“When I am with those who are weak, I share their weakness, for I want to bring the weak to Christ. Yes, I try to find common ground with everyone, doing everything I can to save some. I do everything to spread the Good News and share in its blessings.” I Corinthians 9:11-27
