I've been reading some of the male "denizens" here making "non-excuse" excuses, rationalizations for unacceptable behavior and tossing strawmen around so much I expect to see Dorthy and Flying Monkeys, FFS!

I don’t know about the universe, but I do have trouble understanding why places like Cleveland exist. …Continue
I'm not maligning or trying to diminish ME TOO stories because I've got quite a few of my own. as I wrote in a comment recently - I do not know one woman, NOT ONE who has not had a ME TOO moment or experience in the form of an errant tongue, words, or a hand put to the body in the most unexpected, unwanted, untoward and very uncomfortable manner.
and yet this wasn't that. but what it was, I have never been able to explain even to myself, except it bothered me that he went…Continue
hi all. as one of my favorite modern authors hedges wrote in his book, "war is a force that gives us meaning". hedges is highly educated, a sharp/ cutting/ acute/ piercing critic of the "institutionalized insanity" of modern society along the lines of Gore Vidal, and writes about war and economics, coincidentally some of my own areas of focus.
ISIS was a fearsome force the last few years and the tabloid headlines were very scary. ISIS is one of the most feared modern terrorist…Continue

Pearl Harbor survivors remember those killed 76 years ago
nothing like seeing hell on earth
I do this w some reluctance bc I like to draw the line between the public and the personal.

And yet for love and necessity this is a moment when I cross the line.…Continue
