The Religious Wrong

So Brittany Maynard was diagnosed with terminal, irreversible, and inoperable brain cancer. She suffered increasingly frequent and longer seizures, and increasingly severe head and neck pain, and even stroke-like symptoms.

Telephoned Campaign Propaganda

I just got a recorded phone call saying that Wendy Davis, (Texas’ Democratic candidate for governor) promotes abortion, “at any time, for any reason”, and that she opposes “common-sense” legislation limiting abortions after 20 weeks, “when the fetus would feel excruciating pain”.

John Fitzgerald Kennedy was president of what was then the most scientifically advanced country – in world that still had not been to the […]

I wouldn’t say I loved Lucy

I’m doing a movie review AFTER everyone else has seen the damned thing.  Can you believe, I couldn’t get anyone in my family to go see Lucy with me?  I finally saw it on my own alone at a dollar movie. Why wouldn’t anyone see it with me?  Because it wasn’t remotely real.  We seem […]

My schedule at the moment

I just confirmed my flights for the Unholy Trinity Down Under.  I tried to arrange an overnight stop in Los Angeles, but that would have cost another $800.00.  So when I board Quantas in DFW, I won’t get off that plane until two days later, once I’m on the other side of the world.  That […]
