My Spilled Ink
22-28 May 2023
It’s time for another occasional roundup of everything I have been writing around the web in various places. The short story I intend as my first paywalled content here is coming along bit by bit. Time is not of the essence, for the subscriber count is still getting to critical mass. My summer writing schedule is getting jammed up with projects. When I see a break in the weather I will likely disappear for a day.
On Monday 22 May, I published this account of the homecoming, memorial, and funeral of my uncle John, lost in World War II and unidentified until last year. Projects are in the works around this event and I have been asked to advise them. Stay tuned.
When I had time to get a first read of the Ukrainian Russian invasion of Russia that was happening while I flew home to Alabama, I wrote this quick take. It mostly stands up, more than a week later.
Then I wrote about a Stonewall witness, retired policeman, and gay liberation legend, as well as his opinions on the state of the American Civil Liberties Union. I am helping some people hold a protest at the Capitol in Washington, DC this August amd my coverage is focusing on the reasons why we fight.
The next day I shared my thoughts on the new Top Gun movie.
The day after that, I posted an explainer on the paralyzing politics of “gender self-ID” in the Scottish National Party.
On Friday, I shared some thoughts on Republican presidential nomination dynamics. Also, a sense of doom about Joe Biden.
On Saturday, my friend Theo Jordan published this piece, which is my reaction to a podcast of Stephanie Winn and Josh Slocum talking about death.
Then I listed five tangible differences the F-16 will probably make in Ukraine.
Today, I published a paywalled digest in my ongoing examination of wokeness and “gender indentity” as an historic episode of faith formation.
Another busy week spilling ink lies ahead.
