Get Ready for Stage 2 Exile

What is it? Well, it’s worse than Stage 1 Exile, I can tell you that. Steve McAlpine explains: In case you missed it, Exile Stage One began a few decades or so ago, budding in the sexual revolution of the sixties before building up a head of steam some 20 years ago.

The Unlearned Lesson from South Carolina

The developments in South Carolina over the last few days have produced enough object lessons to fill a lengthy sermon series.
