The Dignity of Human Equality for All People

My take on the SCOTUS’ ruling for marriage equality today is a little bit different than most people’s I think. You see, I suspect that today’s ruling will help further unshackle “traditional” marriage from the inequality inherent in the institution’s misogynistic roots. Let me explain… “We hold these truths to be self evident that all men [people] are created equal…”… Continue reading

Fascinating! Completely Fascinating! But What Does It Mean?

On Friday, January 12, 2007, about 1,100 people passed by a street musician, in the D.C. subway, playing a violin. Very few people hesitated, let alone stopped even for a couple of minutes, to listen to him play.

While neither of us have probably ever seen him before, odds are high that we have heard his voice. El is the voice of AOL‘s “You’ve got mail.” and “Goodbye.” Presented below is biographical information from his website. He also runs… Continue reading

NPR Is Awesome!

So today, this man in Atlanta got to hear a man in Washington D.C. play a Tuscan Medici Stradivarius viola manufactured in 1690.  Not only did he (me) get to hear it, but everyone who tuned in to NPR just before 9:00 A.M. got to hear it too! NPR is the greatest!  This important media outlet does not just focus… Continue reading
