The Rowboat (Part 6: Home Again)

Jack H. Schick

My first months at the junior high school were so traumatic that memories of the experience are etched as vividly into my brain as are the photographs of slithering beasts and snarling gargoyles carved on the walls of a Sumerian tomb I saw in National Geographic when I was a youngster. I was so scared and tried so hard to not screw up that I can still remember my schedule, my teachers and where my seventh grade rooms were. First was...

kevin ashton

The Big Society and other stupid phrases Big Society......Quality time....... Deplaning...............I'm going to give it 110%! Are these catch phrases dreamed up to shift the focus away from the real problem? Let's face it "The Big Society" paints a vaguely rosy picture of us all (in the UK) being better more caring citizens....but by the looks of it won't be funded by anyone and thus will...



To Touch BETRAYAL... slightly FAIL... then bail... in order to face and THEN... reflectively PREVAIL!

Honoring Veterans: The Thayer Hotel At West Point

Wayne and Judy Bayliff

Yes, I Nominated Donald Trump for Presidency Since 2013! But There Was a Small Catch...

Heba Hosny

I did it! I nominated Donald Trump to become Egypt's president back in 2013 as I was hoping he'd utilize his superior leadership skills to hire the right candidates for key positions. In the meantime, I was so eager to hear Trump shout out loud "You're FIRED!" to former Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi. I guess I was the first one to see Trump as a "president material" even before he did! You may...

It broke my heart, twice, because neither investigator knew the other. ..

Our Legacy from the garden of Eden

Ella Camp

“ She bound her ankles in chains of gold And danced in the moonlight to the music of the dark one’s flute. Onlookers thought her crazy. The cup of venom she laughed as she drank; From a chalice studded with glittering gems of erotic pleasures. Blinded by the dark one, who has already seized him, he sees not the antidote within; Forewarned with the knowledge of his...

David Leonhardt of the New York Times recently sent out an email to subscribers introducing himself and asking what we wanted to read, even providing an email address. I replied.
