According to the Washington Post, London police this morning have declared another incident a terrorist attack following an explosion on the tube at Parsons Green near Wimbledon (BBC story link).

Farewell, Dick Gregory, We’ll Miss Your Voice of Truth and Irreverent Humor!

Of all the voices out there when civil rights and race issues were at the fore, Dick Gregory was too. He confronted when no one else dared. He said the words when no one else could.

Minnesota Mosque Bombed – Had You Heard?

This past weekend the bombing of a mosque in Minnesota nearly escaped my attention. Thanks to CBS News for its reporting, I managed to catch a quick comment enough to have it embedded in my brain to search for it this morning before doing my work for the day. I don’t want this report to

I had seen Paddington the Bear, an adorable brown bear with a sweet face, raincoat, boots

Despite all my efforts on Tuesday–well, I started writing this on your day, dear Björn–it seems there was just so much I could do just to get this out before the day had actually passed. I didn’t make it, but at least you’ll know a fan thought of you and wanted to create this special

Manchester, We Mourn With You – May 22, 2017

“Music,” it’s said, “soothes the savage beast.” And if some 20000 who attended the nearly packed Manchester Arena last night in the United Kingdom had been able to tell you after the show was over, perhaps all but one of them might have believed that old, misquoted adage.

Who Needs the Soaps?

I used to think the drama of a few daily soaps on TV made real life carry a bit less of the “wow!” factor. That’s what got me hooked on two soaps several years ago–and they still catch my attention in particular when I’m home. It doesn’t really matter if a month of soap opera
