For the Public Good
Author: TriSec    Date: 04/07/2018 11:59:32

Good Morning.

Last Tuesday, I spent most of my day hanging around the Middlesex Superior Court in Woburn, MA. I was called for jury duty, and like a good citizen I made my way to the courthouse to do my civic duty.

In the pool waiting room, there was an extensive display about past cases and legal precedent, and I was able to kill about an hour of the long day looking over some local historical cases that had repercussions for the rest of the United States.

Schooling the Teachers
Author: BobR    Date: 04/05/2018 14:14:12

Yesterday, the last wounded victim of the Parkland school shooting left the hospital to go home. He has been lauded as a hero for using his body to block a door, likely saving many of his classmates' lives, and inccuring 5 bullet wounds in the process. He is an immigrant from Venezuela.

Back in Dec 2012, the Sandy Hook school shooting horrified a nation. Twenty children and six school employees were killed. Of those staffers killed, some were protecting the children and lost their own lives doing so.

In between these events, as well as since the Parkland shoot, there have been discussions about how to protect the children in our schools. Various ideas, such as clear backpacks, armed guards, metal detectors, and even arming teachers and staff have been tossed around. All but the first idea would cost money - in some cases a substantial amount. We want our teachers to teach our kids the basics, not teach them controversal topics, and protect them with their lives. What we apparently don't want to do is pay them a living wage.

Ask a Vet

Good Morning.

Just a brief entry today - I'm off to Jury Duty this morning, and I am unfortunately expecting to find a very low or even flat tyre on my vessel this morning, so I've got work to do.

Springing in with a whine
Author: TriSec    Date: 03/31/2018 11:41:36

Good Morning.

Maybe, just maybe, we've made it into spring. March came in like a lion and roared for many weeks here in the northeast. But the last few days have been mild, and we're expecting brilliant sunshine all day and fairly benign conditions.

Fabulous Friday
Author: wickedpam    Date: 03/30/2018 13:01:42

Spring has sprung and so have the Cherry Blossom and flower festivals all over the world. Soak in a little of the beauty spring has to offer. Take a fresh breath and a moment to relax. We all need a little down time, even just a few hours or a day, to be able to move forward in the battle for the soul of our beautiful nation.

Survivors are Still Victims
Author: BobR    Date: 2018-03-29 13:04:18

So I was going to write a blog about how the kids from Parkland - despite being "survivors" are still "victims" and should be considered as such. However, Heidi Hollen (friend and fellow Resistor Sister to Raine) posted this on Facebook, and pretty much summarized everything I was going to write:
