A Life for a Life

Last month, I spent a week on a jury in a criminal trial. The charge was murder, and the jury rendered a guilty verdict and a life sentence.

The One Percent and the 99 Percent

Aug 05, 2022 by Larry Jordan
I have a unique perspective on politics. For 25 years, I lived among the “one percent.”  Today, I live among the “99 percent,” driving a van and helping low-income families with their taxes.

How Many People Believe...?

Aug 04, 2022 by Larry Jordan
The other day, an elected official told me that 30% of the electorate will vote for a dead guy. Later, a medical doctor told me that 30% of medical professionals will not get a vaccine. Today, the pollsters are reporting that 30% of Americans still support Donald Trump.

It's Mathematical; It's Not Philosophical.

I used to help local governments when they borrowed money. Sometimes, I had to advise them to raise taxes to pay for it. Someone always said that we should not raise taxes. "Fine," I say, "Which employees will you fire? Which services will you cut?"

In the wake of yet another killing of an innocent Black person by a rogue police officer, a lot of my family and friends are posting that they back the blue.

Social Media Personal Hygiene

Aug 04, 2022 by Larry Jordan
Lately, I have seen a number of friends partially dial back or totally get off of social media. At times, I have been tempted to do the same thing myself, so I started cleaning up my feed.

Social Media Rules of the Road

These are my "rules of the road" for posting on social media. Please keep me honest, and let me know if I break my own rules.

"A Fuller Spectrum of Reality"

Jul 27, 2022 by Larry Jordan
Ten years ago, I read an article by an attorney who abandoned his conservative views for more liberal views when he glimpsed what he called "a fuller spectrum of reality." My journey was much the same, changing my politics, my spirituality, even my personality.

"I Really Don't Give a Sh*t about Anybody Else"

Jul 27, 2022 by Larry Jordan
I'm haunted by a recent conversation with a close friend, who said, "I care about myself. I care (a little bit) about my family and friends. I really don't give a sh*t about anybody else."
