Some Election-Time Serenity

A week ago, I jokingly posted this photo of Steve and me as we traveled to Winnipeg for a yet-to-be disclosed reason. I joked that, since Trump appears to be the presumptive Republican party presidential nominee, we were avoiding the mad rush to Canada. But, have you noticed, I’ve stopped posting much about politics these days? I’ve all but stopped… Continue reading

Offered without Comment

I honestly have nothing other than just sadness once again that we have to peer into the abyss of the depraved violence that we do to each other and the nexus of a just gaping racial wound that will not heal, yet we pretend doesn’t exist. And I’m confident, though, that by acknowledging it, by staring into that and seeing… Continue reading

The War on Christmas

This whole article by Mark Sandlin on “The War on Christmas“ is brilliant and needs to be shared! I encourage you to take the time to read it.

The Rally to Restore Sanity, being held by Jon Stewart, is slated for 10-30-10… Continue reading

I’m An Apple Fan Boy, But…

Even I have been growing increasingly wary of Apple becoming another loathsome, all-about-money, screw-the-customer corporation as it has experienced explosive growth and success in the past 10 years.  I’ve posted about some of these concerns before.  People seem to be increasingly sharing that concern.

A Fascinating Interview

Frequently Jon Stewart just rails against the lunacy.  But this interview with Republican Ron Paul is intriguing.  Regrettably Jon interrupted him a couple of times and didn’t let him get into any real substance of his thinking. I wish I had time to read the book!   The Daily Show With Jon Stewart Mon – Thurs 11p / 10c Ron… Continue reading
