1. What is it with old people parking old cars at Sonic? Or is that mainly a Texas thing?
2. I just love the Problem of Evil.
3. Income over $75,000 per year leads to no additional happiness? Instead of complaining next time – remember that. But the COLA?
4. Our yearning for significance is exhausting. We have got to stop.
5. It is amazing, and heartbreaking, how many peers and friends I have already outlived.
6. You know how soldiers and athletes bond moving through difficulty as a team? I think being a parent can be like that too.
7. Why is work swag so sought after on the job, and then essentially turns to junk the day you get a new job?

9. A local financial adviser on the radio says: “I can get you growth – with no market risk.” I wonder if he knows how ridiculous he sounds.
10. Author and speaker Ravi Zacharias notes in his book, The End of Reason:
