A Sunday Muse

Good afternoon.

I'm sure many of you spent this early fall day watching "handegg", or whatever it is those behemoths are doing on something called a "gridiron". (I use my gridiron to cook steaks, but I digress.)

ISIS Laments New Recruits
Author: velveeta jones    Date: 09/14/2014 13:18:21

A spokesman for the group ISIS took the media to task late last night for portraying their organization as "Godless". In the press conference a man calling himself Azhar said that the West is "Godless, we're not, but you are!" and said America and Europe would pay the price in suffering for "calling us bad names and teasing us about our flag".

I fucking ducked

Good Morning.

This past Thursday, I did something I have not done for thirteen September 11ths. I heard an aero engine overhead, and I looked up. I smiled at it, watched it in glorious flight, and continued on my merry way. I wasn’t sad, dismayed, or indeed…terrified.

There are few words
Author: Raine    Date: 09/11/2014 12:54:00

I wrote this 3 years ago. IT was not filled with anger or disillusionment. It was a heartfelt testament to the power of overcoming pain, finding friendship and love. And here we are, 13 years after that horrible day dealing with the blowback of horrible things done in reaction to that horrible day.

Video Killed the Football Star
Author: BobR    Date: 2014-09-10 11:02:17

It was the punch "heard" 'round the world. At the beginning of this year, Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice got himself in some hot water when a video surfaced of him dragging his unconscious (then) fiance from an elevator in Vegas. He managed to escape charges by enrolling in some anger management counseling and she later married him.

It seems like it was pretty common knowledge what he had done - punched her and knocked her out. Despite the video of him dragging her out like a duffle bag of dirty laundry, and despite the initial charges, the NFL essentially slapped him on the wrists with a 2 game suspension.

So, I had some ideas earlier in the week to tie in with my Bill of Rights series here, but of course I didn't bother to write anything down and now they're gone.
