Anger can cloud the mind. Generally better to seek calm. But anger can also tell us when we’ve let things go long enough. Isn’t anyone else angry? Really?

I tried to find a way to stand up for Al Franken. Really.

Has anyone else noticed an odd omission from all the recent, harrowing accounts of sexual assault and outright rape of young women in the motion picture and TV news industries by older, powerful men?

How many U.S. Marines does it take to hold a hill?

Thursday, October 26th, 2017

I had meant to re-post this yesterday, Oct. 25 -– as I used to do, every couple of years. (Have six years really sped by?) But of course our friends at GoDaddy chose the evening of Oct. 24, this year, to shut us down for 44 hours as they “migrated this site to a new […]
