This I Don't Believe

I’m an atheist. Coming out of the religious closet wasn’t easy, but living inside the invisible burqa-of-politically corrrect was far, far worse. What a fraud I am, or... Read more »

Is it ethical to eat meat asked the Ethicist at New York Times? Define ethical. As the red-covered dictionary sitting on my desk does, ethics is “a system of moral principles….” What system? Whose?

Next thing I knew my father had accepted a job in Houston TX. I was ecstatic, it was a foreign land in 1961 America. After high school graduation, my parents’ gave me a matched set of fawn-colored hardsided American Tourister luggage. Taking the hint, I went to college; well four colleges in five years--it was the 60s after all. Meeting a young hirsute anti-war, soon-to-be-Peace Corps volunteer, I fell in love. After finishing up college coursework for my degree, but before I even walking a graduation stage, I grabbed the paper airline ticket my boyfriend had sent me, my brand-new passport, and was off to the airport and Lima, Peru.
