A Timeless Love Story

It's a timeless love tale:  over-the-top controlling President fumes at bona fide dictator.  Angry exchanges occur.  Then come letters.. many nice, loving letters. All while the required rom-com nemesis (this time, the evil press) tries to keep the lovers apart.

Wisdom for Life

  • Death is the #1 Killer in the world.
  • Life is sexually transmitted.
  • Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one could die.
  • Give a person a fish, and you feed them for a day.  Give a person the internet, and they won't bother you for weeks, months, maybe years.
  • Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in the hospital, dying of nothing.
  • All of us could take a lesson from the weather.  It pays no attention to criticism.In the 60's, people took acid to make the world look weird.  Now the world is weird, and people take Prozac to make it look normal.
  • Don't worry about old age: it doesn't last that long.

Art TELLS Life

This 16th century Flemish [Belgian] painting takes a dim view of what happens when we humans turn on one another and devour one another.  This is happening right now, when uncaring and unfeeling economics are leaving too many workers in the U.S. with too few resources. 

(from the Chicago Art Institute---that city's museum):


The words of the First Amendment, immortalized on the wall of the First Amendment Building, Northern Arizona University.

Notice what is says about religion:  the government should neither try to create a state religion nor repress citizens' rights to hold their religions.  Both "sides" in the Cultural Wars have it wrong. GLAAD & the LGBT community aren't going away, the Southern Baptists Convention isn't going away.  Evolutionary scientists aren't going away and creationists aren't going away.  Etc., etc, so we might as well learn how to agree to disagree.
