One-Armed Bandit Captured in Florida: A bank robbery suspect caught police officers by surprise when his prosthetic arm popped right off during his arrest. Needless to say, the handcuffing didn’t go well. Police arrested and charged the man with “arm robbery.” …Continue

I’m tired of Italians in this country who either support the anti-immigrant/anti-refugee policies of the new ultra right wing administration in Washington, or who remain silent and don’t raise their voices in support of the immigrants being targeted.
Don’t these Italians remember or even know about their own family’s history in this country?
If you’re Italian and think that certain people, like Muslims or Syrian refugees, should be registered or…Continue

Truly privileged, Willfully ignorant
Trump favor(s) Sharia Law
Recently the President raped, (and) robbed with impunity.
But what about the average citizen?
They will unleash a barrage of social unrest, this one of the driving facts addressed by Trump that got him elected!
They will continue to support the assassination of police officers under the aegis of false narratives.
This is the new America, divided!

I wonder how many of us have forgotten what happened on January 28, 1986?

I grew up surrounded by females. My dad owned a women’s clothing store. Both of my sisters were girls, and my mom was a woman. We had two female cats whose names–Big Kitty and Baby Cat–could have been taken straight from a Eudora Welty short story. As far as I know, the box turtle in the basement was female, too.
As a result, I am uniquely well-equipped to…Continue
Is the US getting in its own way now?
When I was growing up (1950s and 60s), we could see the difference between western Europe which was beginning to prosper after the devastation of WW2 and eastern Europe which was stifled by communism. The lesson we drew was of how ideology could stifle progress - that sometimes a nation can’t get out of its own way.
In the years since, communism has disappeared. A few communist parties may survive, but where they do, in China and North…Continue

For those who do not have a military background it’s useful, perhaps, to look at the use of…Continue
Trump and Peña Nieto Talk on the Phone: Amid an escalating crisis between neighboring nations over a border wall, President Trump and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto had what Trump characterized as a “constructive” and “productive” hour-long telephone conversation. When asked to sum up his view of the conversation, Peña Nieto took a line from an old Pink Floyd tune, saying “all in all, he’s just another prick with a wall.”…Continue

most of the other steps are challenging for a Shut-In like me, but i'm going to check on addresses and such to see…Continue
I thought I would be at my hermitage for a week end retreat today. I reserved it soon after the election. This was my first free week-end and I knew I’d need it by now. I do but I’m not there. Last night a friend called. Her husband was put on life support and she’s given permission to take him off. “I need you.” I didn’t tell her my plans, how happy I was leaving work that day knowing the next morning I would escape for three days of quiet, walks in the woods, time to sleep, read, think,…Continue
