Rosetta Spacecraft Crash Lands On Comet

Rosetta Spacecraft Crash Lands On Comet:  The Rosetta spacecraft ended its historic mission by crashing on the surface of the dusty, icy comet it has spent 12 years chasing in a hunt that has provided insight into the early days of the solar system and captured the public’s imagination.  NASA says that upon landing on the rocky object, the spacecraft will then transition from Rosetta to “Rosetta Stone” and begin teaching the comet simple phrases in…

Questions

My counselor asked me today which is bothering me more, the PTSD or the depression. How do I tell them apart?

I'm sitting on my sofa right now anxious about going to bed, as I am almost every night. That is the PTSD.…

Great Americans Have Ever Said: "...and Check Out the Sex Tape!" (Part I)

Mr Trump is hardly alone among great Americans, as you'll recall from your no doubt stellar grammar school educations, in pointing out what really matters.

"Government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth, and check out  the sex…

I am an Independant

I am an independent.  I think it's every person's right to be idealistic and hold out for a better world, even if it means rejecting the "old" one.  I'm proud of my daughter for being that way.

My generation started the attitude as it now persists.  We said politics is rigged, the system is warped, and all politicians are wicked.  The Viet Nam war turned us into a gang of cynics by the age of nineteen. 

Then, we watched the likes of Nixon elected, and G. W. Bush, and…

It's a Crime

My Dear Friend,

I’m writing because I can’t seem to reconcile the controversies I’ve been seeing in the news about police brutality, violence against police, Black Lives Matter, All Lives Matter, black, white.  Especially here in “Chi-raq,” these issues have a palpable presence.  I took the time to look into the Black Lives Matter movement and I’ve been following the stories in the news as often as time allows.  It is about fighting racism and police brutality, to give a voice to…

Back to Texas – Part Five, First Week in Bastrop

Life in the Comfort Inn was convenient.  Mama’s Kitchen was located in an Exxon Station a hundred feet from my door - hamburgers, fried chicken, breakfast burritos and breakfast muffins, and in the lobby of the motel were Danish pastries and coffee.  Except for beer runs I could hole up with MSNBC and HBO all week, which is pretty much what I did.  It was Thursday, September 22nd before I found the listing on Craig’s List, a room available in a house a few miles north of Bastrop…

My Bossa Nova Years

It is no coincidence that the bossa nova craze coincided with the years in which I achieved my greatest romantic success–first through sixth grades. No music is better suited to inspire thoughts of love than that associated with the Portugese term translated roughly as “the new thing or trend or fashionable wave or something.”

It was perhaps the Fates who decreed it–they have had nothing to do since the demise of the ancient Greeks! I was prepared as no…

Un Efecto Inmediato del Debate Reciente

We know that Mrs Clinton's chances increase to the extent that our Latino citizens vote. We also know that a recent media narrative suggests that enthusiasm for her in Spanish-speaking communities has lagged. This may have changed and perhaps as a result of Monday night's debate. …

Five Tools For the E-Vote Obsessed

Friends,
 
 
These are "aggregation" sites. This is to say, they report on polls...

They are independent and have no connection to any candidate or party and they have very good track records.
