The Observer: Let's call Critical Race Theory precisely what it is

I support the York select board's Proclamation Against Racism, Discrimination and Bigotry and urge others to do so. Not everyone will agree. Resistance to the proclamation has been associated with viral criticisms of Critical Race Theory. One line of attack against CRT employs a classic propaganda tool called the straw...

Voices: Revisiting the New Testament and slavery

In a previous article, I condemned attempts by some American Christians to justify or excuse the hideous sin of American slavery. I focused most my attention, however, on the single passage of 1 Timothy 1:10. Given space limitations, I was unable to treat the broader question of slavery in the...

The Forgotten City review: a lean mystery that builds Rome in a day

Picture the scene: you wake up at the side of a river and a stranger, who is reluctant to tell you their name, is like, "Can you go into the ruined city and find my mate please?" Five minutes later and you find yourself stuck in a time loop in a small Ancient Roman settlement from 2000 years ago. It's not just you who's trapped, either. There are several people stuck in this underground city that you fell into, and you're all under the threat of turning into gold statues if even one of you does something wrong. This is the situation in The Forgotten City, a time loop mystery adventure that does not, unfortunately, feature a dialogue option for constantly swearing and weeping as a reaction to the situation. 0/10 for realism.

UVa, Wokeness, and Rooms on the Lawn

Once upon a time in a galaxy far far way, it was considered a great honor among 4th-year University of Virginia students to be selected for residence on the Lawn — the architectural heart of the university designed by Thomas Jefferson and now designated a world heritage site. The accommodations were less than luxurious — most memorably, the 47 rooms were not equipped with their own bathrooms. There were offsetting advantages. The rooms had fireplaces, and the University provided a plentiful supply of wood. But living on the Lawn was mainly about status. It conferred recognition of a student’s accomplishments in his or her first three years.
