    High Stakes in the Immigration Battle

    The presidency of Donald Trump has made some things many of us suspected for a long time perfectly clear, as a former president used to say.

    Homesick in America

    “Darlin,’” she said, “I’ll get that. Go ahead and take it.” She was a weathered-looking woman with mousy light brown hair drawn back in a bun and the plain, honest look of one of those faces you see in Depression-era photos from the Dust Bowl, faces that don’t smile—they are just themselves, making the best of circumstances as they are.

    Sing Me Back Home

    Merle Haggard was a real American. At its best, his music was folk art, Americana poetry, each song capturing a snapshot of his people’s story. There was nothing phony about Haggard, and his music and songwriting showed what country music can be.

    Never and Always

    I turn down the soothing voice of “Gentleman Jim” Reeves. He looks at me from the CD case, a face thought of as handsome in his day, though Jim seems too mature and, maybe, just a bit innocent, even naive, for our jaded time.

    A Manner of Speaking

    My father’s manner of speaking is dying out. Not just the blunt honesty, but his accent, syntax, and vocabulary. I don’t mean saying “ya’ll”—young people still say that in Texas (and I thank the Lord for small favors)—but something else.

    Trump Pulls It Off

    Trump’s victory will likely energize anti-globalist, patriotic forces in Europe, building on the Brexit victory and perhaps giving the West at least a hope of saving itself from being drowned once and for all under a demographic tidal wave of immigration unleashed by the Davos cabal.

    In his latest novel, Derek Turner, author of Sea Changes and Displacement, takes his readers on a seriocomic journey with a latter-day Holy Fool.

    Palm Sunday

    On Palm Sunday, I took a walk. It’s the first day of spring, and the sky is china blue, decorated with small cotton-like puffs of clouds. Flowers are blooming, and the ducks at the pond have laid their eggs.
