  • The Cultural Elite vs The Power Elite - From my well-read wife I was sent an article that speaks to the sudden decline of the American Empire. From Creative Class War by Richard Florida: "For several years now, my colleagues and I have been measuring the underlying factors...
  • Last's "Price They Pay" - A couple of weeks ago a friend sent me an email with the text purportaly from a column by Jonathan V. Last. (You can find the full text of what I was mailed here.) It's the usual whining by an...

  • Vacation: Day 3 - The Phillies opened a new Spring Taining facility this season. The old stadium was back in a neighborhood, but we didn't find parking a problem and it was free. Today, it took 40 minutes to turn left onto the street...
  • Vacation: Day 2 - Missed the game today. But took a nice trip through the mean back streets of St. Petersburg. I did find the minor league complex for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays and watched a quick game of toss....

  • Innocents - No matter what any "freedom fighter," "revolutionist" or "terrorist" tries to claim...there are innocents and any act that kills an innocent damages the cause. In every political situation it is possible to effect change without killing the populace. Has the...
  • 2007 World Cup of Women's Baseball - Another in my list of "Reasons to Live in Canada" is the 2007 World Cup of Women's Baseball. American Women's Baseball will field a team. Profits from the tournament will go to a scholarship program for baseball players pursuing post-...

  • Lives in the Balance - You might ask what it takes to remember When you know that you've seen it before Where a government lies to a people And a country is drifting to war Jackson Browne released "Lives in the Balance" in 1986. What...
  • I do not want an echo chamber - I don't always have a purpose or direction. Sometimes I just follow links...from jennett.radio to fishbucket to This is My Body, This is My Blood where I read this: "Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about sex. Not in a...
  • Politically Correct - Is it politically correct to eat girl scout cookies while sipping tea from a Hooters take-out cup?...
