Leah Greenspan can rest assured that that her mush will not make it to scroll form.


Had to laugh out loud at that video. Perfect!

Ed Peters

Regan is a riot. We love his stuff.

Lauri Friesen

Ahh, the sweet callowness of youth. I hope she lives well and long enough to cringe with embarrassment someday.


"...the local newspaper had an op-ed piece ... written by a student ... "

Really, I don't want to be snarky, but this says enough.


Give the girl credit, when she shovels it she uses both hands.

Charles E Flynn

For the record, the student newspapers at those universities that are allegedly the finest in the USA routinely run articles that remind me of the adjective a priest applied to a paper I wrote as a sophomore in high school, in which I criticized Pope Paul VI's speech at the United Nations:



Perfect post. Had to tweet.

The "force" is strong in this one :-)

Alexis Mauldin

Oh good grief. That piece sounds like it was written in 1971 by a high school student who'd just been introduced to Thich Nhat Hanh. But I was a senior and was still 'sophormoric'.

My students try to invoke this 'be true to yourself' mantra. I remind them that Hitler did that, too. He followed his passions, did what he loved.


How right you are Alexis. Sadly, that is in vogue now. May God have mercy on us all

David K. Monroe

The Buddhist monk who is able to go for extraordinary amounts of time without food or water does not do so because he has "experimented with his passions" or followed the advice of "close your eyes, take a deep breath, and go for it." He has done so by practicing a lifestyle of asceticism that the author of that confused and superficial article would certainly find inimical to her "self-discovery."

Scott R. Lucado

Well, it's silly stuff, but let's hope that she continues to be a "seeker of truth"--because sooner or later, maybe she'll stumble on the Fullness of Truth and see it for what it is. It can happen to anyone. It happened to me.


Scott, well said. May God bless this woman's journey and may He have mercy on us all.
