Save 100 Today…Lose 1000 Tomorrow, by Andre Joppa

  While the release of fifty hostages must be celebrated, there are a myriad of other thoughts that must accompany this event. I will state those as a series of discrete thoughts that, I believe, are worth considering. I totally reject a comment that I recently read, “The release of fifty hostages today is worth the concerns for a thousand …

An Ashkenazi in Saudi Arabia, By Andrew Joppa

Anecdotes seldom matter. What follows is an anecdote that I believe has something to say.   While I was raised a Roman Catholic, as my life events unfolded, I became aware that my “birthing” father was an Ashkenazi Jew…never knew him…couldn’t have cared less. That is a very long story that I won’t relate to you here. Ancestry.com listed me as …

“The Wisdom of The Wise,” by Andrew Joppa

Stupidity: The Enemy of The Good, By Andrew Joppa

  Dietrich Bonhoffer, in his Letters and Papers from Prison, offered what might be considered The Rosetta Stone that defines the source of almost all American problems. He wrote, and I submit his comment in its entirety:   “Stupidity is a more dangerous enemy of the good than malice. One may protest against evil; it can be exposed and, if need be, prevented …

The Long March Towards Mediocrity, by Andrew Joppa

  With the recent Supreme Court ruling eliminating race as a basis for college admission and presuming this ruling will have extended implications in other environments for the future, I thought that some thoughts on the unconstitutional concept of Affirmative Action were in order. I have found that most of the discussions on this topic tend to produce more heat …
