Another school year has come and gone, and well summer is almost here! What are you going to do this summer? If you have kids, what plans have you made, vacation, educational trips, etc? If you don't have kids, what are you doing that's interesting?

The Meaning of Life

Posted by Chris Field on June 9, 2014 at 11:33am 1 Comment

When people hear that I teach philosophy in college, I’m often met with one of two responses: “Oh, I loved my philosophy class in college!” or “Ugh, I hated my philosophy class.” There are very few ‘tweeners, very few ‘Eh, I could take it or leave it’. And I can understand where each side is coming from. When pressed, most would say that their opinion of the class hinged on their assessment of the professor, not really the curriculum. I’ve had wonderful professors who took some of the most…

Loyalty to Bowe

Posted by Chris Field on June 9, 2014 at 11:31am 1 Comment

SGT Bowe Bergdahl has been in the news quite a bit recently. A week after his return to US forces, he still is the lead on many television news broadcasts. And everyone, and I mean everyone, seems to have an opinion on Bowe.

He has been called a hero who served honorably. He has been called a deserter. He has been called a traitor. Many have questioned the imbalance of ‘the trade’. Many object to ‘negotiating with terrorists’. Many have wondered whether this will act as an…

To Tell the Truth

Posted by Chris Field on June 9, 2014 at 11:29am 0 Comments

There’s a guy I know (or have interacted with online) who recently had an epiphany. He would no longer sacrifice honesty for diplomacy. He would no longer emphasize tact over truth. He felt that, owing to a profound sense of integrity, he wasn’t going in for mealy-mouthed half-measures any longer.  

For years, I guess, his comments were measured and deliberate. He headed up a military support group, and spearheaded an organization that offered counsel and fraternity to a certain…

A MORNING LIKE NO OTHER...

Posted by Alice Swan on June 6, 2014 at 9:32am 0 Comments

70 years ago, Americans were waking up to hear the news about the greatest military operation ever attempted. They heard how Allied naval forces, 13,000 paratroopers, more than 150,000 troops and some 11,000 flight crews participated in the landing at Normandy. Most of them probably had to check a globe, or the European map they had hanging on the wall to follow son Bill or Uncle Walt’s movements through the theater to see where those beaches in France…
