Brian's Brain

by Brian George Hose

In case you missed it, the new season of “American Horror Story” has begun. This, coupled with the arrival of sweater weather, makes this one of my favorite times of the year. I’ve been a fan of “AHS” for years because there’s a lot to like. The award-winning show has given us some incredible performances and memorable storylines, all while illustrating and commenting on the horrors of American life in smart, sometimes subtle ways.

Should We Tolerate Intolerance?

Should intolerance be tolerated? That question has weighed on my mind since the events of Charlottesville. It’s a paradox: If you think of yourself as tolerant it means, by definition, that you tolerate opinions and perspectives that are different from your own. Otherwise, by not being open to all perspectives and opinions, including ones that are intolerant, it would seem that you’ve become intolerant yourself. So, what’s a tolerant person to do when faced with intolerance? The answer may surprise you.

The Big Move

This week I’m writing to you from the edge of sanity and reason. You see, I’m moving and now understand that moving is one of the most stressful life events that a person can face. Everything about moving is stressful – finding the appropriate number of boxes, figuring out what will go into said boxes, and then actually moving those boxes from your old life to your new life. The things that don’t make the cut, the stuff that won’t be joining you in your new life, still need to be moved and dealt with. Factor in the July heat and humidity and you have a recipe for an experience that will make you hate everything.
