• Generation gaps

    I recently participated in a series of leadership conferences where you go through all kinds of self-evaluation exercises, listen to leadership gurus, find out what your personality type is and then, imbued with these newfound insights, in a perfect world, implement all this wisdom knowledge and become a Zen-like master of management.

  • The game’s afoot

    Sherlock Holmes books were some of the first “serious” books I read and it was love at first sight. They were a little complicated but not impossible to follow and the stories were perfect fuel for stoking the imagination of a young reader. I revisited some of the books later in my dotage and found them just as enjoyable.

     

     

  • Feeding frenzy

    If you think you’ve seen your quota of blood and tearing of flesh in a generation’s worth of Shark Week, think again. For the hunting and feeding habits of your typical Carcharodon Carcharias pales in comparison to your average television newsroom when it comes to covering tragedy.

     

     

  • Strange indeed

    Whether it was guys wearing animal skins hunkered around a campfire or Boy Scouts out on their Jamboree, the ghost story has been a staple of human entertainment. Now, there is a lot of caution bandied about, as I have bandied myself, about the occult and how careful we should all be when approaching it for entertainment purposes.

  • Honestly funny – comedian Jim Gaffigan blends faith, humor in new TV show

    God and comedy clubs are not generally something most families throw together; then again, most families don’t create a cable comedy show either.

  • Excess baggage

    In its opening weekend, the fourth installment of the “Jurassic Park” franchise brought in a world-wide box office income of half a billion dollars. That’s billion with a “b.”

  • Tuning in to Jesus

    Say the word “televangelist” in a crowded room and you might just as well have yelled “shark” at the beach. The word didn’t always evoke such a near universal response of disdain … until Fulton Sheen.

  • The Devil You Say

    Lucifer is no laughing matter, though movies, television and pop music are saturated with various riffs on the Prince of Darkness. Not wanting to be left out in the cold — or heat — Fox television is launching a series with the Devil himself as the lead character in a weird kind of cop procedural show called — what else? — “Lucifer.” Talk about your ultimate “bad-good guy.”

  • Talk talk talk

    Trying to tell millennials about Johnny Carson is like trying to tell them about The Beatles. It only confuses them and reinforces the stark reality that as a baby boomer, I am well beyond the puppy stage.

  • Post mortem: The end of ‘Mad Men’

    After seven seasons over the course of eight years, AMC’s award-winning series, “Mad Men” has closed its doors. In a show filled with just about every vice and human failing known to man (and woman) all woven into the fabric of almost every character, I did not expect so many tidy endings to so many untidy lives.

Voices

The healing place of silence

Father Ronald Rolheiser, OMI

A recent book by Robyn Cadwallander, “The Anchoress,” tells the story of a young woman, Sarah, who chooses to shut herself off from the world and lives as an anchoress (like Julian of Norwich).
