The Genealogy of Terah in the first printing of the 1611 KJV."I greet you, my brother." Biblical Ishmael is banished to "the wilderness of Beer-sheba," while the narrator of Moby-Dick wanders, in his own words in "the wilderness of waters." Beersheba is the name of the well at which Abraham and Abimelech took an oath (Genesis 21:31). LYRICS But for all the mystery and portent and references to eastern tradition that Hall’s built into the verses, the chorus couldn’t be more clear: “Slip into this house as you pass by,” Erickson exhorts us. And yeah, it’s clear even without having read Eye Mind that he’s talking specifically about turning on as a shortcut to enlightenment, which is at this remove from 1967 a notion that’s, at best, quaint. Heard only in that light, “Slip Inside This House” is pure anachronism.

There is a big disconnect between how republicans define leadership qualities (they tend to use words like authority, power, and emotional intelligence) while what is actually required is a person who can lead teams and working groups. In the Journal of Applied Psychology, researchers from Stanford explored which qualities matter most for performance and team success, and what can damage it. Republicans think the most common leadership quality is charisma, command, or character. People like Ronald Reagan, Billy Graham, and Jerry Fallwell are often named with a certain religious devotion in common.
