The Essence Of Han- Understanding the Korean Psyche

Just after the United States began the invasion of Afghanistan I wrote an essay describing the history of conflict there and the reality of the socio-political structure of Tribal peoples as opposed to nationalistic entities in establishing peace. Today, sixteen years later, the reservations I had then about our military success there have been […]

Can Drones Fly Under Porch Roofs?

I’m having a hard time trying to envision how a drone can deliver a package at my doorstep.

My front door is set back from under a porch roof a good eight feet. Can a drone fly under a porch roof to safely deliver a package at a doorstep? If the drone cannot get in […]


The New Paradigm and Workforce Issues. (2009, historical but applicable in 2017)

An Outing for Evan

My experience,as a tough parent, has been holding my tongue while the little ones run wild and the parents do nothing but use their inside voices to ask, not demand, that the kids sit down. But it was mid-afternoon on a sunny Saturday and […]
