Be Like David... Not Like Mike.

One does not have to be a sports fan to know that induction into the Basketball Hall of Fame is a tremendous honor.  Whatever your field, there is nothing like being recognized as one of the best ever to do it.  Recently, several legendary basketball players received this honor.  Among them were David Robinson of the San Antonio Spurs, and Michael Jordan of the Chicago Bulls (full disclosure:  I grew up in Los Angeles loving the Lakers and despising both the Bulls and the Spurs... and I’m still getting over it).    There was a stark difference between the two ...

What He Must Be Conference Followup

Should We Chalk Up Another One for the Anti-Marriage Crowd?

South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford is beginning to take on the look of a punching bag in the press these days (until he was rescued by the news of Michael Jackson’s death).  After going A.W.O.L. over Father’s Day weekend, it was discovered that the Sanford was actually in Argentina with his mistress.  Though it sounds like something from a James Bond movie (the governor being tracked via cell phone pings... his aids telling security to stop tracking him), the unfortunate reality is that this is an all-too-familiar tale of boy meets girl... boy marries girl ...
