Utah political commentary with a sense of humor, more than a dash of irony, and lots of moral fiber. (Yes, I suppliment my Republican family values with Western Family Rasin Bran to find just the right balance.)

Newspaper Article: Trauma of family separations may linger for FLDS children
I am a very imperfect person. Despite this glaring reality, during my life I have tended to be rather opinionated—editorializing as if I had all the answers. (Typical blogger!) I hope, however, that I am growing in humility.
I say this because the more I have learned, the more clearly I have been able to see how little I actually know. Plus, a lifetime of personal blunders has had a way of nicely undermining my pride beyond all repair.
I now find myself having very little confidence in either my own, or anyone else’s, wisdom. There is one notable exception. I have come to have a much stronger belief in the Lord Jesus Christ and his wisdom. For me, his ways and teachings have consistently proven themselves over time to be true. He is the only one I ultimately trust—my only hope.
In my weakness, I seek to serve him, my family, and my fellow man. I also want to have some fun if possible. In that spirit, I write what I do.
To the few folks who actually read my blog, I apologize for my imperfections. I am doing the best that I can. I hope you find value in what I have to offer. God bless you.
