The home of Uncommon Sense: Providing Clarity, Promoting Intelligence


Welcome back to some serious issues impacting our nation. Glad you are along for the ride. Issue #310 of Uncommon Sense will give you much food for thought! Let’s see what’s in store for you.

I continue my peek at strategy in the Self-Development Column. Therein are some examples from just a few days ago as well as from a few centuries ago. You are about to get a mini-lesson in this important topic.

In the previous issue (#309), I raised some questions about Gay Pride Month. That led to some opportunities to interact with some of the activists in that particular demographic. Details are in The Elephant in the Room column.

There are times it is prudent to look back at our past and remember where we came from. But doing so can be an exercise in nostalgia. I share some personal observations in the From Ara’s Journal column.

The English language continues to dazzle with its endless collection of words that can often be the perfect express of an idea or notion. The World of Words column does it yet again with an elegant and sophisticated word that will make you sound, well, elegant and sophisticated. Go for it!

OK, let’s get started.
