The New Year is almost upon us, so instead of writing some useless drivel about the changes in my life and blah, blah, blah... I thought I would share some of my favorite blog posts from this year. So, if you are new to my blog and want a sampling of my writing, here it is. If you aren't new, have a look and see if you missed anything.
I finally got around to writing about the causes and effects of The War of 1812, for my dear friend, Janet... I get a lot of hits from people seraching for info about this splendid little war... and even some unpleasant comments. I guess people are still touchy about it. Who knew?
I also wrote this Letter To President Obama concerning his cabinet choices.
I wrote The "End of Acting White" the day before President Obama was inaugurated... this was one of the ost heartfelt things (among many) that I wrote this year.
My review of The Bush Administration stands alone. Reading it again, I wouldn't change a thing.
This "Fatherhood Friday" post about "Daddy Dentistry", still makes me laugh.
Sometimes I blog about food, and in this instance I had a request from two of my readers for one of my favorite recipes: Shrimp 'n Grits, a la Gunfighter. Here it is... with pictures.
A story about parental pride
A Story aboutparental trust and worry
A post about being a Man
This post wasn't planned, but it was obvious, to me, that I had to write this post about Male Bonding
This was a Challenge from a really cool dude: A Sermon for Pentecost Sunday
Do you remember the Skip Gates Scandal? The President, The Professor, and The Lawman... a lesson in journalistic foolishness.
This was my description of The Perfect Workday for Fatherhood Friday.
A Letter To The President about his decision to escalate the war in Afghanistan.
and lastly, a post that I wrote in the middle of 2008, and didn't post until late this year. This one is called "An Angry Black Man"
Some of these posts were favorites for some of you... some of them you may not have read at all. In any case, they are some of the ones I liked best.
Happy New Year... be safe tonight.
