Rumours of Grace: Why I am subscribing to the New York Times

What Does Kerra Seay?: This apple fell far from the tree and rotted

Rumours of Grace: The lost habit of rest and why we love Trump
We like our caffeine fixes. They get us moving each morning; especially if they are laced with fructose laden flavour shots and, of course, the well-established standby, white granulate sugar. Read more

Rumours of Grace: Weddings and marriage, are they overrated?

Reyno Rants: Giving the worst holiday this year the recognition it deserves

Rumours of Grace: Political gods and demagogues
