After awhile dad sat, even though more people packed onto the bus than got off --- a festive atmosphere --- en route to the parade. Self-consciously he left the cooler in the aisle next to him, more embarrassed whenever the bus jerked or swayed, clamoring the glass and cans inside. We shouldn't have packed the whole icebox, I thought he'd be thinking. Well we got downtown, and they were right, throngs of people hurried in a controlled rush. I waited until my…Continue

I leaned out through the gloss varnished walnut framed window, almost the mahogany color of the bow on a Criss Craft, resting my hands on the sunlit, green painted outer frame---some of the paint had a rougher, alligator feel. There was a steady breeze --- a summer wind --- out of the west, as a man on stilts walked by to hear me shout, "Hey!" and he heard me, looking up and waving as he adroitly began a zig-zag pattern holding his balance, yet able to…Continue
This post was the first Editor's Pick I received over at Open Salon. I wrote it in 2010. On re-reading now I see how much I'd change it, the writing style, the length of it ~ but the essence remains the same. I likely will edit this and post it again, elsewhere, some day, but thought I'd re-post it as is this week, for this last week of OurS.…Continue

Ah, the MIC, not being “they” to me; more like demented old aunts and uncles, who are hanging on to power out of fear. These once brilliant old folks are losing our shirts to con artists and extortionists while the world burns.
I knew them. I could always read their displeasure. They let me live in their world, and I am grateful. I don’t know them now, and don’t care too. I have grown up and moved on.
The Saudi’s behead and dismember. The MIC…Continue

My aunt's ashes made it to North Dakota today. The folks drove in from the Lakes and picked them up at the Fargo post office. Special delivery.

UK Health Group Says Too Much Cleanliness Not Bad for Health: According to The Royal Society for Public Health, the notion that too much cleanliness can be bad for your health and that children need to be exposed to germs is a “dangerous myth.” Oh hell!

I doubt that there has ever been a Trump appearance where some Trump supporter hasn't accused Obama of being born in Kenya.
It must get kind of embarrassing for them all to have such a poor grasp of geography (not to mention facts), so I have gone ahead and solved their problem for them.…Continue

After last week's gaffe and dust-up with Senator Booker, the polls are indicating that Joe Biden is holding his substantial lead over the field of Democratic hopefuls. He remains the front runner for the Democratic nomination as the candidate to run agains Trump for the Presidency.....
Personally, I'm not happy about the prospect of Biden as the Democratic standard bearer for the next cycle but, if it should come to that, I'm prepared to soldier on in the knowledge that if Trump and…Continue

Jim Bakker Warns Followers Christians Will Be Killed if Trump Loses: Jim Bakker recently shocked his followers on his TV show by proclaiming “I’m going to say something I probably shouldn’t say,” and then warned that if Donald Trump isn’t re-elected in 2020 - Christians are…Continue
A few of us seem to be getting through the gauntlet of BindleSnitch. There are a lot of instructions, and the wizard of BS is working out the bugs.
My one test bit got up but only with Alan’s tweaking. Kosh, Amy, and RP are up once too.
I have no clues how to save any of my Our Salon bits. I guess they are going to be buried in Utah HQ. I should be so lucky.
So much for leaking! How’s the borscht?
I hope you're all doing well.
I just wanted to let you know that I've finished copy/pasting Steve S and James's posts and will hopefully have free sites up for them soon. I will keep you updated via various channels - emails for those of you whose contacts I have, as well as via Twitter and by asking some of you who are in contact with other OSers, to help spread the word.
Just so you know, if you ever commented on a James post, I'm going to be including the…Continue
