#justsayin takes a look at Google

This week, Ford Williams adds to the hoopla surrounding Google’s abrupt termination of the Harvard PhD engineer who dared to question the company’s diversity policies and postulated the “male –female disparity in tech could be attributed to biological differences.” Ford’s cartoon series, #justsayin, is in its second year of publication.  The irregular and slightly irreverent cartoon series reflects the world ...

BEN WILLIAMS — The one U.S. Supreme Court opinion to read in 2017

The U.S. Supreme Court’s regular term ended Friday, June 30, 2017, and the nine lifetime Justices began their summer recesses. A vacant seat and a perceived 4-4 ideological split clouded expectations in October when the court term began.  Six months into the session, Justice Gorsuch joined the bench in a televised swearing-in ceremony conducted by swing-vote Justice Kennedy at the ...

BEN WILLIAMS — Gorsuch: The one Protestant

On April 10, 2017, the unorthodox 6-year, 11-month, 21-day drought of a Protestant on the U.S. Supreme Court presumably ended.  With his English wife of 20 years by his side and left hand resolutely on the family NIV Study Bible, Neil Gorsuch accepted the second lifetime appointment of his brief forty-nine year life.
