I recently rekindled one of my favorite pastimes. Playing poker. Not that I ever stopped playing; I just haven’t had the time or opportunity to play much in the last few years. Last week, I found myself at my favorite local card room, Running Aces (which I highly recommend checking out), where I managed to […]

PersephoneK writes about anything and everything that moves her, but usually she can be found skeptically discussing Liberty, Religion, Workplace/Government reform, Philosophy, and pop-culture.

Recommended Must Read
Economics is one of the most critically misunderstood disciplines in a democracy. Your ignorance is peril for us all. Sowell explains complex topics very simply.

If you can only pick one book to read all year, pick this one. I rank it as one of the top 5 books all humans should read. It will be time consuming as its long and dense, but its also easy to read, and filled with gobs of nuanced facts and analysis to show how the world is better today than at any other time in history. Life is good, and Pinker has the proof.
