Texas: Fighting A Losing Battle

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 29, 2015 in News & Opinion |

There is a saying that the battle may be lost (or won) but the war is not over, and it is exactly this fact of life which many people in the United States should take to heart. The Supreme Court may have the final word on same-sex marriage as far as the law goes, but […]

The Darkest Days Of Humanity

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 27, 2015 in News & Opinion |

It is hard to believe that some count the last hours as being the darkest ever. I do not mean in a natural light sense – sunlight, daylight saving time and all that – but in the sense of a set back for the human race, a turnaround in the wrong direction, a return to […]

Review: Getting Colder

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 22, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

Some people live in the past, either because they’ve never managed to come to grips with modern life, or because there are too many good things still left, they believe, which make it worth hanging on to.

If there is one thing bound to raise the roof, bound to be contentious, bound to get people shouting at one another, it is the subject of marriage. Heterosexual partnerships – the norm in most countries – are accepted as being the only form of lasting, living together, sharing love and saving on taxes contract […]

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 23, 2011 in News & Opinion |

It’s amazing how some people are capable of twisting something completely out of proportion, and keeping a straight face while doing it.
