My wife and I travelled to Barre Vermont for a sort stay. We enjoyed ourselves in the way we usually do, which is to walk about and see what there is to see. It was a warm July day with a sparkling blue sky. Hot too, but hot for Vermont is maybe 10 degrees less than hot in Dover NJ.
We passed a quaint park in front of the town hall, with a gazebo and a with wedding party…Continue
“You’re not going to try and stay up late with us, are you?” my wife said apropos of a little soiree we were having for her ballet friends Saturday night. “You need your rest for the work week,” she said, her face a veritable picture postcard of concern.
“Dear God, please don’t let him stay up and make stupid ballet jokes!”
“Actually, I think I’ll take a long nap in the afternoon so I can keep up with your fast crowd,” I said,…Continue

I can't retype it, and I can't recapture it. I can tell you only, with no backstory and none of the journey bc I cannot do it again, HOW Trig was like my brother.
More like my brother than anyone else on this site or Open ever was. I loved James, and I loved Scanner, and I won't ever get over either one of them being gone, but they were beloved friends, not brothers.
Because, like my real life brothers, Trig had the power to hurt me enough to just close the door. But always,…Continue

Yesterday, Sean Spicer, white house press secretary resigned when someone was brought in from the outside to serve as communications director, the position Spicer hoped to be given. I can’t imagine anyone wanting that job, or any job in the Trump administration, but then I can’t imagine a world of alternative facts, and the belief that any news that does not agree with your concept of reality is “fake news”.

No. At least it won’t be easy. Leave alone any consensus about what behaviors are racist.
I give you St. Petersburg mayoral candidate Paul Congemi.
He went on a racial tirade Tuesday when he told members of the Uhuru Solidarity Movement and backers of rival candidate Jesse Nevel’s campaign to “go back to Africa.”

For months now, I've been thinking ...oh, 99% that's pretty close, close enough anyway.
I'm not so sure now. I've been doing my googling and 'they' are saying, just that one percent makes the difference between interesting and totally awe inspiring. Life changing, even.…Continue
