The home of Uncommon Sense: Providing Clarity, Promoting Intelligence


Christmas is right around the corner, and I hope you are looking forward to a memorable Christmas season. My Christmas gift to you is this latest issue of Uncommon Sense.

The Self-Development column covers the power of listening, as well as the consequences of not listening.

In The Elephant in the Room column, we continue with Christopher Rufo’s unpacking of the transgender madness. Part 3 of 5 is found therein.

The From Ara’s Journal column touches on a concern I have about popular “experts” dispensing advice that is foolish or problematic.

And if you want to up the ante with your ability to express yourself in powerful ways, go to The World of Words column and utilize the word I highlight there.

OK, let’s get started.
