Re: “Why didn't any white officials attend the Nehemiah Action?

Good commentary. I was there, too, saw the same things, and was deeply disappointed in our elected officials with pale complexions.

Re: “Herb Silverman's newest essay collection suggests how we can be "good without God"

Sorry, Ian Brett Cooper, but I believe that religious agnosticism is the only honest position to take when talking about "God." Since the idea of God--or gods--seems to have been around since before human language was first recorded (in stone or bone), it's hard to know exactly what "It" (that idea) refers to. We cannot know whether or not God (or gods) exist, nor how It/they are manifested, which is the essence of agnosticism.
I'm sure that Herb Silverman's book would be a worthwhile read, regardless of your belief system.

Re: “Walter Scott's death is proof the system doesn't work

Excellent article. People of privilege rarely realize the extent of their privilege. And those without privilege live with chronic deprivation and fear.

Re: “A retired Charleston scientist packs her bags to teach in South Korea, then returns to tell her tale

Thanks for the great review! You nailed it. And yes, the book was compiled in part from journal entries and emails written while I was in Korea.
