Four regional signals alerted the Philippines to the arrival of Typhoon “Ompong” (Mangkhut) as it touched down in Luzon, home to the capital, Manila, in North Philippines at Baggao, Cagayan on Saturday morning. Bringing in heavy rains and gusts and winds up to 285 kph (pushing 178 mph), the category 5 typhoon promises to be

Breaking News: Supreme Court of India Strikes Down 150-Year-Old Anti-Gay Law

Just a quick comment to explain that I began to write this article immediately after the news came out yesterday afternoon. As a result, I may not have caught all of the references to “today,” referring to the 6th of September as I post this now on the 7th. My apologies. I want to get

John McCain: A Great Man is Gone

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC) and CNN quoted former President Jimmy Carter’s description of Senator John McCain as “a man of honor, a true patriot in the best sense of the word.” Few, if any, could have been more accurate. I loved the anecdote Mike Allen shared this morning. It epitomizes that strong sense of honor

Closing In On the Golden State Killer

Soon after Joseph James DeAngelo Jr., was arrested as the Golden State Killer in April, one comment after another began to open discussions in several Facebook groups and I’m sure elsewhere as well. After some time, I saw a brilliantly researched reference to the data I’d hoped to find–or rather the untimed data with the

The baby’s name will

While such honesty invariably reveals a boldly naked look in the astrological mirror of the mind, the person who has attained such a responsibly frank observation

Tragedy in Miami on the Ides of March

This is a quick news blurb I can’t put off. My plate is full, but there’s just too much to ignore here. Several are dead in Miami at this hour as a pedestrian bridge installed less than a week ago–on Saturday–collapsed. At least eight vehicles have been crushed, at least five people are in the

Envisioning and Reflecting, and Somehow It All Comes Together

I sit here on the morning of what the media are calling the “first Super Blue Blood Moon Trifecta since 1866,” shaking my head a bit at the word they missed–“eclipse.” But then how many types of “first” can you say in tandem before that mouthful reaches the point of the absurd? Perhaps this is

And Baby Makes FIVE…

Some articles will say a lot in few words. This is one of those fairly rare ones just to send warm congratulations to new parents! Baby girl West–Kim Kardashian and Kanye’s 3rd child–was born on Monday morning. January 15, 2018 in Los Angeles, California. No reason to guess what time she was born. Thanks to
