The Bridgehunter's Chronicles
If there is a word of advice to give to a person wanting to engage in the hobby of photography, it would be this:
1. Look the surroundings. What do you see beyond the naked eye? What is most unique about the surrounding that is worth photographing?
2. Choose an object and/or a person you find attractive. Why choose this subject and how unique is it from the eye of a photographer?

Oh Look! A Shiny Thing
I'm Lex Luthor and Emperor Palpatine and Magneto and The Penguin.
Best-case scenario, maybe I get to be antihero Beatrix Kiddo on her roaring rampage of revenge in Kill Bill. But that's on a good day.
Why am I turning into a supervillain? Well, if you believe the Myers-Briggs personality tests, I have an ENTJ personality. You can read all about Myers-Briggs here, and about that specific perso...

Healthy Thinking Minnesota
The world seems caught up in an endless cycle of attack and retribution. Whether on an intimate, national or global sectarian level, mankind seems hopelessly drawn toward answering violence with violence. But there is another way. My colleague from British Columbia, Anna Bowness-Park, explains how one young girl's example of forgiveness is having a powerful healing effect and leading us to peac...

The View From my Window
The truth is, life is easier when you dont care about sports.
This deep thought occurred to me Monday night as I finally admitted to myself that three minutes of game play was probably not enough time for the Oregon Ducks to make up their point deficit against Ohio State in the college football national championship game. It was painful to admit. But it was, sadly, true. Ultimately, the ga...

She didn't want to be weighed in front of her entire gym class, so 13-year-old Ireland Hobart Hoch said no. But instead of respect for her decision, what she got was a visit to the principal's office.
Her response to all the tsk-tsking, as reported in the Des Moines (Iowa) Register: "I really wasn't comfortable with anybody but my mom and doctor knowing my weight. For another person to know - ...

The Attorney is In
I admit it: the Grinch was acquitted of stealing Christmas presents and it happened on my watch.
He didnt even have a defense attorney.
It was not my fault, my witnesses got confused. After all, they were only third graders, and they had not actually witnessed the theft.
You see, every year the County Attorneys Office partners with the Worthington Police Department to give local third grade ...

Twins Rubes: A Local Angle on the Minnesota Twins
Last night in Kansas City, Twins fans came 2 outs away from seeing something we haven't seen once this year from the starting rotation: a complete game shutout. In fact we haven't even witnessed a complete game yet, much less a shutout from a starter. Canadian Andrew Albers made his major league debut firing fastballs in at a high of 88.6 MPH, and dropping in curve balls as slow as 67.7 MPH. Ja...
