The Petri Dish
Author: Raine    Date: 08/04/2022 12:49:02

A little over three years ago, (April 2019) a state Supreme court ruled that its state constitution protected a woman's right to abortion care. It was also in that state where George Tiller was murdered. Dr. Tilller was the Medical Director of one of only three clinics that proved late pregnancy termination. That State?

We're not in Kansas anymore
Author: BobR    Date: 08/03/2022 12:26:36

Yesterday was yet another primary day in several states in our inexorable march towards a depressing midterm election. Along the way, however, things didn't turn out quite the way that most people expected. Yes, I am referring to that abortion ballot referendum in Kansas.

Good Morning.

You're probably aware that Boston is a giant college town. We've got somewhere around 75 institutes of higher learning in Boston proper and the surrounding communities. Some larger than others, some highly specialized. A prominent one is Catholic (Boston College), but none of them are Evangelical.

In The end, Keep it simple.
Author: Raine    Date: 08/01/2022 12:49:30

Sometimes we make things more complicated than we have to. Usually it's because the issues are quite large. I had a great conversation with a loved one over the weekend. We don't always see eye to eye on issues, but she's not a fascist, so there is that. I'm kidding. She's a true and honest independent. We actually have far more in common than not. I hung up with her and thought about why some people, when talking about complicated and uncomfortable things use the exception to the rule, to debate an issue where we may not completely agree. It's as if one is inadvertently excusing the discomfort of the subject. This is where things always get complicated in socio-political issues.

I don't have those discussions with those that are lost to a far out-there ideology, to be upfront. There are very distinct differences between the Democratic Party and The Republican party in the year 2022. Maybe it's time to clarify them in very simple terms. Actually, it's two words: 'For' and 'Against'. Let's start.

The Slow Arc of Justice
Author: BobR    Date: 07/27/2022 12:50:36

They've been hinting around the edges, saying things like "no one is above the law". When asked about a Jan 06 criminal investigation, the DOJ has not been exactly detailed, and Americans who want justice have been getting itchy. It looks, however, like the DOJ is playing it close to the vest up to this point.

Last night in an interview with Lester Holt, AG Merrick Garland repeated the assertion:
