To all who have studied romanticism in literature, you are sure to have come across what is called Southern Romanticism and it does take on a different flavor and history than regular romanticism. Once you become aware of it’s characteristics you see it popping it’s head up in every aspect of our lives. It developed its special flavor in the early eighteenth century south and can be seen in our politics, our religion and in how we see and experience the world.
Here are just some of the...

At least one of these three motives is the driving force behind every homicide, theft, burglary and robbery. In fact, these three motives lie at the heart of every conceivable crime or misdeed. Human misbehavior is motivated by: financial greed, sexual – or relational – lust, and the pursuit of power.

Today, it dawned on me the last 'Family Meal' I attended was at the last family member's funeral. I'm more than OK with that, good riddance to bad rubbish to the rest. I really, really...
