I totally spaced and forgot it was Monday. This was the first weekend we could go without a mask.

To me, boxing is like a ballet, except there's no music, no choreography, and the dancers hit each other.

The Truth Shall be Spoke
Author: Raine    Date: 05/13/2021 13:05:48

Good morning and happy Thursday! Well, happy as one can be while witnessing in real time a total authoritarian acquiescence by the party that claimed to be Republican.

The Emergence
Author: BobR    Date: 05/12/2021 11:52:02

Spring is here... the days are getting longer and warmer. After a cold dark winter, and even longer time spent in self-imposed isolation, it's time to emerge and flourish. It's time for the cicadas.

Yes, after 17 years in the ground, slowly growing toward adulthood, the Brood X will emerge in the mid-Atlantic (ground zero for your humble writer) and drive everyone nuts for a month. It's almost as if 2021 told 2020 "hold my beer".

These are their stories

Good Morning.

We all know the acronym. "LGBTQ". Even on our side of the house, it's sometimes all too easy to disassociate the person from the acronym. If I have my labels right, as a cisgender heterosexual male, it would be all to easy for me to dismiss those different from me. But I choose not to. You're probably aware that one of my oldest friends is gay; he stood for me as my best man 25 summers ago with hardly an eyebrow raised.

Another longtime friend recently came out as transgender: Once Chuck, he is now Cheryl, and has actually walked away from much of a former life, although still retaining a new presence on facebook. There was little backlash there as well - despite his former existence serving as a nationally-prominent leader in a well-known youth group.

When is Now.
Author: Raine    Date: 05/10/2021 13:04:27

Thursday, I wrote a blog about defending our small d democracy. While the topic was mostly about a certain congressional representative from Wyoming, it touched upon a bigger problem than the 'big lie' and the opposition party. While much of the media focus on why they are doing this, most are missing what I consider to be the bigger, and far more concerning, picture.

Defending Democracy
Author: Raine    Date: 05/06/2021 12:59:50

There has been quite a bit of handwringing over the past few months from liberals about being forced to defend Representative Cheney (R-Wyoming) for her stance on refusing to fall in line with "The Big Lie". I'm not one of those handwringers. I am not defending her for her stance with the Republican party.

Liz Cheney is what she is. She's not a moderate member of that party. She voted for TFG 92.9% of the time. Her likely successor, Elise Stefanik, only voted at 77.7%. Her politics are the polar opposite of mine, she's hardcore GOP. Who she is and what she politically represents is not the issue at all. It's something much larger than that.
