"Our Name Says it All"

Trying to find the core belief within a political party is a little like looking for an item in the refrigerator; brands change and the location within the ‘fridge changes, but butter is still butter and…

Question for a Tuesday

"Committed to being America’s best first job"  is the trademarked slogan for the

McDonald's ad campaign to counter the labor movement for a $15.00 per hour minimum wage.



They've poured millions of dollars into national advertising and lobbying all levels of government in an effort to surppress the upward pressure on the minimum wage rather than taking the same money and distributing it to employees.



All of us have had experience with that very first 'real' job and… Continue

Yellowstone Supervolcano 2.5 times Larger Than Previous Estimates

Yellowstone Supervolcano 2.5 times Larger Than Previous Estimates:   A new study shows the supervolcano beneath Yellowstone National Park is actually about 2.5 times larger than previous estimates, suggesting that an eruption could very well doom all of humanity.  Scientists theorize it would be nearly impossible for most life forms to survive such a cataclysmic event, with the possible exception of cockroaches or perhaps a few of the…

Fake Your Way With Biz Cliches

If you want to get ahead in business, it is not enough to be intelligent, hard-working, and decisive.  The Great Plains of Commerce are littered with the corpses of men and women who possess these qualities, and who were nonetheless stung to death by a swarm of buzzwords.…

RIP

I'm still trying to wrap my mind around Chris Cornell's death. He was 52 when he decided to cash out, roughly 2 months younger than I am. Sometimes when I attempt to put myself in the mind of a person like Cornell right before he hung himself, or Kurt just before he pulled the trigger, or any one of the millions of anonymous people out there who chose to stop living rather than face that darkness any longer, I can, almost, understand what they were thinking in those last few minutes or seconds.… Continue

Girls Just Want to Have Fun - Dance Parade, 2017 NYC Part 2

A great song but please don’t take the title too seriously.  It certainly does not mean that girls don’t also want success or to be respected.  But the song kept coming back to me as I watched the Dance Parade yesterday.  The event itself was overwhelmingly female. …

The Human Car Wash of Self-Esteem

It was one of those dinner parties where everyone had had a little too much to drink, and the conversation around the table had grown more . . . shall we say, spirited. Changes were being rung on the usual male-female antinomies–shopping, burping, etc.–when one of the wives went a little too far.



. . . and don’t get me started on his back hair!”

 

“Jeff doesn’t know which end of a hammer is up,” a woman named Sally said with a laugh, which the…

Idolatries of the Mind and Spirit; A Sunday Meditation

“A person will worship something, have no doubt about that. We may think our tribute is paid in secret in the dark recesses of our hearts, but it will out. That which dominates our imaginations and our thoughts will determine our lives, and our character. Therefore, it behooves us to be careful what we worship, for what we are worshipping we are becoming”

(Ralph Waldo Emerson)

 

Forgive me for a few moments while I tell you a little…
