July 4. 2021 I have recently found the delightful views of one Ben Shapiro, a prominent Jewish contributor to current American conservative thinking. He postulates that the cornerstone of American freedom and unique position in world progress and well being comes from Greek science and Biblical religion. While i agree with his premise, I also see a world in which many Biblical values he omits have contributed as much of more than the ones he has spoken for.

I am a public defender who became a real lawyer more than 50 years ago. Graduated from Emory College in 1964 with high honors, and from law school 3 years later after becoming the editor in chief of The Journal of Public Law. Somewhere along the way I taught school in Baltimore Maryland, was an alcohol and drug counselor, faught forest fires in Idaho, ran an educational program for federal employees engaged in Johnson's War on Poverty, agitated against the War in Vietnam, studied Hebrew and the Judeo-Christian heritage for seven decades and survived many years of drunkenness. I am a lover of baseball, dogs and cats, guitar music and a certain lady in Baltimore I have not seen in 40 years. I live in the lovable small city of Statesboro Georgia. Four times a week I attend a meeting of a famous fellowship for drunks and try to get to Mickve Israel every Saturday in Savannah. I do not hate anybody and am a passionate American patriot.
