Here’s why HBO’s Perry Mason is returning to a gritty LA for new series

Perry Mason has been a TV icon since the 1950s, the archetypal courtroom lawyer whose incisive cross-examination inevitably saves the day.  The character was created by the author Erle Stanley Gardner. A lawyer who advocated for the disenfranchised, immigrants and people of color, Gardner later turned to writing, starting with pulp stories and novels in the 1930s on his way to writing 151 books and selling 325 million copies. Gardner, who lived and worked in Temecula for more than 30 years, h...

Podcast #619: What Driving Tells Us About Agency, Skill, and Freedom

According to Silicon Valley, self-driving cars are the future of transportation. Instead of owning and driving a car, you can just summon an AI-operated vehicle with your smartphone and have this superpowered computer taxi you to your destination. No more car maintenance, no more traffic, no more accidents.  It may sound great on the face of it, but my guest today argues that shifting from being a driver to being a mere passenger represents an existential risk in and of itself, as well as a s...

Dodgers coach George Lombard tries to honor the work of his activist mother

The Federal Bureau of Investigation monitored the mother of Dodgers coach George Lombard over parts of nine years. The dossier on Posy Lombard is 313 pages long. It’s a page-turner. The Ku Klux Klan tried to thwart her from demonstrating in Mississippi in 1965 (page 96). She was suspected of abetting an accused terrorist in 1969 (page 224). In April 1974, around the time Hank Aaron was breaking Babe Ruth’s home run record, the FBI was still gathering intel on Lombard’s various political affiliat...

What does a bird symbolize?

Sunrise, captured at its predictable time — it was 5:19 — with the sudden appearance of a bird.

Decrypted: DEA spying on protesters, DDoS attacks, Signal downloads spike

This week saw protests spread across the world sparked by the murder of George Floyd, an unarmed Black man, killed by a white police officer in Minneapolis last month. The U.S. hasn’t seen protests like this in a generation, with millions taking to the streets each day to lend their voice and support. But they were met with heavily armored police, drones watching from above, and “covert” surveillance by the federal government. That’s exactly why cybersecurity and privacy is more important than e...

Don’t Resist the Simple Tasks of Everyday Life

If I cook all the meals and do all the laundry, but do not have love, I am nothing but a noisy gong. If I help with all the homework and go outside to play together, but do not have love, I lose. If I share my opinions on social distancing and shame everyone for not having the same experience as me, but do not have love, I am like crashing cymbals. If I share a meal with my neighbor and give to those that lost their jobs, but do not have love, I gain nothing. My version of 1 Corinthians...

Black Liberty University Alums Suggest Falwell Step Down After Blackface Tweet

NEW YORK (AP) — Nearly three dozen black alumni of Liberty University denounced school President Jerry Falwell Jr. on Monday, suggesting he step down after he mocked Virginia’s mask-wearing requirement by invoking the blackface scandal that engulfed the state’s governor last year.

Will Being Humble Heal Us?

I’m on the phone with my friend, and she’s crying. “I’m sorry,” she apologizes. “But I’m so angry.” (Anybody else felt that emotion in recent weeks?) But before I reply, my friend gets quiet. “No, actually I’m afraid.” Indeed, our whip-sawed emotions have been through the wringer. Dare I even mention the word “pandemic” – aware that more than a few are weary of hearing about it? Still, my friend is afraid. Her close relatives are hospital workers. “Two nieces and a cousin – all on the front line...

How ancient Christians responded to pandemics

Ancient Christians knew epidemics all too well. They lived in a world with constant contagion, no vaccines, medieval medical practices, and no understanding of basic microbiology. Hygiene was horrendous, sanitation sickening. People shared “toilette paper”(a sponge-on-a-stick). Besides that, in the second and the third centuries CE, two pandemics rocked the Roman World. The first, the so-called Antonine Plague, was perhaps a strain of smallpox that, with intermittent outbreaks, persisted for dec...

A Beautiful Scar to Remind Me of My Daughterhood

Do you have any scars? Most of us have at least one. Each scar tells a story. Take for instance this two-inch scar on my right hand. “Everybody hustle so we can make it in time for church,” I called out to the empty hallway. Five kids tumbled out. As a newly single mom, hurrying my children seemed to be my chief occupation. Never mind the fifty-plus hours a week I spent as a senior book editor at a major publishing house. I longed to sleep in and rest. But worship together was a priority. We all...

Should churches be considered essential businesses?

Over 1,200 pastors in California claim they're opening their churches this week against state orders. While church leaders demand independence from governmental oversight, 9,000 Catholic churches have received small business loans. A number of re-opened churches shut back down after members and clergy became infected with the novel coronavirus. Last week a group of over 1,200 pastors signed a petition to announce that their churches will be open for business beginning on May 31. This announcem...
