Necrosis? Ah, erythema. Looking at medical conditions via photos turns me morbid! Every time.
Paint Your Wagon . I love that film! The King and I and South Pacific chart not far behind.
When I saw these signs in film and photos, I thought of Peter Robinson and the story of how the line 'Tear down this wall' made its way into Reagan's speech. I thought of the German woman who spoke with Peter about the Berlin Wall and how it should be torn down. Also, I thought of the resistance to the line being included in the speech. Now, I wonder, does Colin Powell remember the crafting of the speech and that time he worked with Reagan? What does he think when he sees the vets at whimsy barrycades affronting them at the National Memorials?
My heartfelt condolences to Jonah, who undoubtedly feels the real loss of a fine being, the dog, Cosmo. Hugs.
It's a good thing to resist the the uneven, unequal and unfunded ACA . It's a good thing to fight it and to leave a historical record that shows resistance. Not many people actually want it, so let's show that.
I saw an interview on BBC's Hardtalk the other day where Kasparov said to Steven Sackur that Putin's KGB men are now the Russian Mafia, and that Putin will use them to fight the West with banks instead of tanks. Interview on Youtube, as well.
Junkies wouldn't like the feds to know who they score from. But you know, with all the drugs available to pop stars who record in LA (from the studios, they say), there has been no hint of snooping on how drugs move around in that milieu. You would think the temptation would be huge to snoop on that drug trail.
Hah! So funny! I love the title, too, Yes, We Scan! This motto should reverberate throughout Dem hangouts wherever they are found.
I think codes of ethics need to be updated to reflect the insidiousness of political power couples when they are journalists and political advisors. Newsmakers/news writers alliances should have no stranglehold over information.
Brilliant! What a great image! HRC looks so dopey and remote.
I still can't get the painting of the Tsarnaev brothers escaping out the Aladdin's lamp/pressure cooker out of my head! I want a copy of that in digital form.
I quite like Pope Francis. He has a ton of courage and character. He may wear a white frock, but he is one macho hombre.
How I wish Romney had won!
It shouldn't be unusual for candidates to return to political venues to make speeches or even to shape policies. It happens all the time outside the US. I frankly don't see Romney's appearance at the CPAC convention as an occasion to pile on him.
Though I am not Catholic, I admire Pope Benedict XVI and Pope John Paul II. I think the current pope worked hard for the last one while he became infirm and barely lucid, so has been responsibe in the highest offices for a long time, and has helped make the Catholic Church vibrant.
Pope Benedict is known for being a moderniser, and I think he shows modern thinking in his decision to resign. In this day and age of shredding leaders through tweets, or even paragraphs taken out of context, he is wise to leave his office for a younger, quicker soul. Issues such as gay marriage, pedophilia in the church and women to be ordained to the priesthood are hard issues that hardball types will crucify an aging pontiff over. He is right to leave the stage if he can't deal with this crazy world of constant communication and counter-communication.
Is that Paul Krugman handing Spanky Ben Baby the money?
