The Trouble for Bald Men
As our country goes to pot, I find myself more focused on personal matters, such as this item from ABC News: Scientists may soon find a cure for baldness.
As it goes, researchers were surprised to discover that balding men have the same number of hair-producing stem cells as men with full heads of hair. If scientists can find a way to activate these stem cells, baldies will have hair again.

And that is good news for fellows like me, whose hair is beginning to recede some. Hair is more important than ever. I think I know why.
For most of human history, you see, the roles of men and women were clearly defined. Since basic survival was so difficult, the division of labor was very clear and imprinted on our DNA.
Thus, men tended to perform the tasks that required size and strength. We wrestled bear and elk, plowed fields and defended our families from plunderers.
Women, on the other hand, tended to manage other important tasks, focusing on the homestead.

The more I follow the online discussions ... the more I follow the debates and disagreements in the Church about administrative unity, or the concerns expressed about the moral or personal or administrative or leadership failings of the bishops or the clergy, the more I become convinced that whatever might be the truth of these concerns, ALL of this is simply a distraction. No, itís more than that. Itís a justification, an excuse, for not helping each other and those outside the Church fall in love with Jesus Christ. How easy it is to talk about everything, but about Jesus hardly at all.
