The New York Times estimated Trump […]

By George Mitrovich On Sunday, June 24, Jeremy W. Peters of The New York Times, wrote 1,891 words on how 90 percent of Republican voters embrace Donald Trump; not just embrace him but are furious because media abuses their president, misrepresents their president, is unfair to their president, and lies about their president — never […]

Remembering Bobby

By George Mitrovich “Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down […]

Picked Up Pieces from Facebook Postings

| May 10, 2018 | 0 Comments

By George Mitrovich Mostly my columns are about a single subject, as the previous 161 would prove, but not this month. Let me explain: I do several postings a day on Facebook, essentially because it is my blog. Friends have suggested I have my own blog, but even if I did, it is almost certain […]

Jesus, Am I a Christian?

| January 2, 2018 | 0 Comments

By George Mitrovich On the day before Christmas, Nicholas Kristoff’s column in The New York Times was entitled, “Cardinal, am I a Christian?” To haters of The Times, who believe it inherently and disgustingly liberal, Mr. Kristoff’s column may seem odd, but it shouldn’t, as the question of Mr. Kristoff’s “Christian standing” is one he […]

Alabama in the Mind of America

| December 2, 2017 | 0 Comments

I was recently the guest preacher at the First United Methodist Church of Montgomery, Alabama: a historic and key church in Alabama’s capital city. The invitation to preach came from Dr. Jeremy Pridgeon, the church’s senior minister. He had extended the invitation last spring, when he called to ask if I would come to Montgomery […]

Save Our Children

| November 3, 2017 | 0 Comments

My wife and I will survive the consequences of Donald Trump’s presidency. Our three children, possibly, our grandchildren, will not. If you think that’s just our circumstance, unrelated to yours, you are mistaken in your judgment. I will come back to this, but first: Trump is president. He wasn’t my candidate, possibly, not yours. But […]
