A QUICK QUESTION ABOUT THE ECLIPSE

Maybe it’s just me, but… …why would I travel to somewhere I don’t actually want to be, and pay a wildly inflated price for air fare, hotel and meals, so I can see 100% of an eclipse I can see 76% of in my backyard for nothing?

DICK GREGORY: R.I.P.

Dick Gregory, who started his career as a stand-up comedian, and spent most of the last half of his life standing up for his beliefs, has passed away at the age of 84.  The cause of death was heart failure.

AN IMAGINARY CONVERSATION…

….with someone who just found out one of your (actually, my) two sons is gay. I posted this on facebook two years ago, and might have posted it here as well.  Regardless, it certainly is worth putting up a second time.  So here goes: Q. Your son is gay? A. Yes he is. Q. Really? He told you he was gay? A. Everyone who knows him knows he’s gay. He came out quite a few years ago. Q...
