Blind Tadpoles Able to See After Eyeballs Are Attached to Their Butts: In what is considered a stunning new development, researchers at Tufts University were able to give sight to blind tadpoles by grafting eyes onto their rear ends. Well, they do say “hindsight is 20/20.” On the other hand, we have a chief executive who talks out of his arse. My concern is that these poor tadpoles won’t know whether they’re coming or going.…Continue
Larry was 49 when he died January 13 while in Costa Rica.
I only found out after the memorial service. Because he had been a great swimmer, my first thought was that Larry might have drowned while on vacation.
I had not heard from Larry since he left NY Life to work for AIG-US Life - just before the financial…Continue
Interesting claim by Larry Kudlow, Trump advisor - "“Why shouldn’t the president surround himself with successful people?” Kudlow wrote. “Wealthy folks have no need to steal or engage in corruption.”'
Apparently Oversight Committee Chairman Chaffetz…Continue
We stand at a critical moment in Earth's history, a time when humanity must choose its future. As the world becomes increasingly interdependent and fragile, the future at once holds great peril and great promise. To move forward we must recognize that…Continue
Evelyn Farkas, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Ukraine and Russia may very well have stumbled upon her very own admission of guilt on the part of the Obama administration by admitting to Joe Scarborough and Mike Brzezinski that intelligence gathering had been directed against the…
There are two types of people–those who “get” poetry, and those who don’t. My immediate family and all of my close friends are proud to be included in the latter group.
I’m a member of the former group, but not by choice. My relationship to poetry resembles that of Patty Hearst, the newspaper heiress, to her abductors.
You may recall that Hearst was kidnapped in 1974 by the Symbionese Liberation Army, a band of leftist revolutionaries, at a time when she led a life typical of…Continue

Yi Ling has connections with a…Continue
Scientists Find Unexpected Entanglement Origins in Photons: Researchers have found that particles, once thought to have to originate from the same place, can actually come from different locations in the phenomena of “entanglement” - whereby particles can be separated by billions of light-years and be instantly affected by the quantum changes in one another. Fine, but frankly at the moment - I’m more concerned about the “entanglement” of my frigg'n…Continue

My rant - the US isn't perfect, and yeah, our government can do horrible stuff, usually at the behest of corporations which are a layer that…Continue

DONALD TRUMP RULES BY DECREE
Donald Trump as a phenomenon is a trinity of Mussolini-Hitler-Stalin. In his "signings" of Executive Orders, Trump behaves like…Continue
Ever wonder why we can't have nice things like the "Medicare for All" single-payer healthcare system that almost 60% of all American adults want? (the number is probably much higher now then reported in the 2016 Gallup…Continue
Inspired by Koshersalaami's post Conservatives: Anti-Family, Anti-Christianity, Anti-Country, my brain has emerged from the fog of depression lite autopilot and I'm posting something for the first time in a week. When I was a kid I loved literature, movies and TV that depicted heroism that chose to follow the path of what…Continue
I have a friend who can't figure out how to do anything. That wouldn't be so bad but he knows I can, and since nobody has to walk to a phone booth anymore he doesn't see anything wrong with calling at any hour.
I would complain more but his uncle who had an agricultural business in southern Oregon, if you get my drift, actually named me in his will a few years ago. I didn't know he was going to but he remembered all the time I had spent helping him build his house and being…Continue
