Wars are economic. Mars uninhabitable.

. . . we can concur that sound bites are highly malleable wedge issues. . . 

Wasting assets and false needs are clear and prescient dangers --- expedients of greed and fear, dare I say, detractors from social welfare, which is goal orientated toward good, self-actualized - sane - healthy human beings.

And our better angels.

Hence, the contra to social welfare is social warfare.  The circumstance a…

Astronomers Find Half of Missing Matter in Universe

Astronomers Find Half of Missing Matter in Universe:  In one of cosmology’s perplexing problems, up to 90% of the ordinary matter in the universe appears to have gone missing, and astronomers report that they’ve finally detected about half of this missing content for the first time.  So I’m guessing that means the other half is still misplaced?  Tell you what, I’ll keep an eye out and if I happen to see any of it, I’ll let you know.…

September at the Beach

Lots of folks like to visit the beach during the summer. I grew up on Long Island, where access to the beach was easy, and that's what we did as soon as school was over in June- we went to the beach all summer long.

No need to go swimming. I would go whenever I could until it was just too cold to be…

Sports Mag Calls Trump’s 73 Golf Score Patently Unbelievable

Sports Mag Calls Trump’s 73 Golf Score Patently Unbelievable:  Golfing experts are expressing serious disbelief at the claim that the President shot a 73 during a recent round of golf with Lindsey Graham at one of the President’s golf courses.  Yea, his score may be unbelievable, but then again, isn’t everything he says and does pretty much unbelievable?  To put it in golfing terms, Trump lying about himself is “par for the course.”  That said, he ought to be…
