Veterans Day 2015

Veteran's Day 3We remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice:

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

Laurence Binyon’s poem For the Fallen, written in September 1914

Harper-Mercer: Mentally Ill or on a Mission?

Alek_Skarlatos_with_French_President - Copy

It seems apparent that we may never learn the whole truth about the recent murders in Oregon. The official narrative seems to be that the shooter, Christopher Mercer (aka Chris Harper-Mercer), was a mentally ill loser who somehow gathered a “legal” arsenal, carried a rifle and 5 handguns into Umpqua Community College without being seen or stopped, and systematically, within 10 minutes, murdered 9 fellow students–shooting one man 5 times (or 7 times) and one woman 10 times–and wounding 9. As usual, various scenarios are offered.

Veterans Day 2014

Veteran's Day 3Today is Veterans Day:

An Act (52 Stat. 351; 5 U. S. Code, Sec. 87a) approved May 13, 1938, made the 11th of November in each year a legal holiday—a day to be dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be thereafter celebrated and known as “Armistice Day.” Armistice Day was primarily a day set aside to honor veterans of World War I, but in 1954, after World War II had required the greatest mobilization of soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen in the Nation’s history; after American forces had fought aggression in Korea, the 83rd Congress, at the urging of the veterans service organizations, amended the Act of 1938 by striking out the word “Armistice” and inserting in its place the word “Veterans.” With the approval of this legislation (Public Law 380) on June 1, 1954, November 11th became a day to honor American veterans of all wars.

Ebola Lola and the Pity Party

Can you take another post about Ebola? Just a few bits of new information and some commentary:

Yes, we can! 

Catch Ebola from surfaces, upon which the virus can survive for nearly two months! We can also catch Ebola from sitting next to someone on public transportation, from airborne droplets, and even from toilet seats. We can catch Ebola not only from the seats, but also from simply being in the same restroom with, or after it’s used by, a person with Ebola, given the particulars of how our modern toilets so rigorously flush, sending aerosolized waste droplets flying. Isn’t THAT special?

Yes, that is a stuffed Ebola virus “toy” in the photo above. Isn’t he cute?
