Around the Horn

Around the Horn is back after a hiatus due to more pressing matters. So without further ado …

At first, here’s an article giving “5 Reasons Why Gay is not the New Black.” These are things that should be pretty obvious. While all humanity should be treated with dignity because they are in the image of God, we, as a society, need to stop with the nonsense. This article helps to point us in the right direction.

At second, here’s a story of a man who was offered $50,000 for his twitter handle, refused it, and then had it stolen from him. What’s the biggest lesson here? If someone offers you $50,000 for your twitter handle, give it to them. Now. Why? Cuz Twitter handles are free. So take the 50G before the other guy finds out.

At third, here’s a couple of articles on parenting (article 1, article 2). I’d like to insert here that I have made none of these mistakes. Today at least. (My kids are still in bed, which makes it easier.) Of course letting them sleep until 8:00 a.m. on a non-school day may be a sin, but I will ask them about it when they get up. Parenting is challenging, to be sure. Thankfully, everyone and their mother has an opinion on it. So check these out and see if they make sense to you. If not, remember I am just posting links.

And the home run, here’s a good idea for those who like to eat for free and don’t mind airport security. A man bought a first-class ticket, and spent the next year going to the airport, checking in for his flight, eating in the airline’s VIP lounge, then changing his ticket to another day. Then he would do it again. Time after time. Give the man points for creativity.
