I recall a lot of confusing information being broadcast when this awful event happened. Of course, not everything we heard was accurate, so this is a good chance to clear up some things.
We make it very hard to live in a peaceful stable society if we are lashing out at the very things meant to help and protect us.
It has been a great challenge to hunker down and keep sane while besieged by the unhinged ravings and actions of our unfortunate President (of the United States). I have been at a loss for words during most of this, but every now and then something happens that prevents me from remaining silent. I trust […]
I was rather displeased to find this video in my daily dose, if not binge, of YouTube news. The headline alone is rather inappropriately sensational, as though these seniors were yanked off a bus, Freedom Rider-style, in Georgia for being black. That is very much the image that is purposely suggested. I have much sympathy […]
It has taken a bit of time for me to digest the Kavanaugh Saga. Any time I wanted to write something down, new stories arose, prompting me to absorb more information before responding. I think much dust has settled from the previous skirmishes let us call them, although the battle and indeed the war are […]

I really think this is one of the most important dialogues between the US left and right since The Great Divide, we’ll call it, aka. The 2016 Election. If Republicans were thinking […]
The 2016 Presidential Election was an unpleasantly shocking experience. For those of us on the left, this has been a stark reminder of the George W Bush days when we marked a reputation for ourselves that has left an everlasting stain on the world’s conscience, and now we seem to have re-initiated such a dark […]
I have been at a loss for words for the past few months. Since completing the series, my mind has been in a state of stasis—frozen in uncertainty after being bombarded by an amalgam of ideas that I have encountered many times before in many other stories, histories, and re-tellings, but simply not in this […]
