I read that and couldn't, and can't, stop an old Queen song from playing in my head ..... "Another One Bites the Dust".

I've been fighting a head cold for the last three days.
First one in 10 years. That's a record I didn't want to break.

So in a nut shell, everyone is talking about it except Keith Olbermann.
Interesting. I think I'll forgo speculation and wait for him to say why he left.

My heart goes out to the child's family, because they have to deal with what I almost did 18 years ago. To them I send my thoughts and positive energy. Maybe that isn't much, but I hope it will help in some small way. On the other hand; Be of good cheer, Lady Joolz. There is a bright side to this tr...

This is what upsets me most. My God. An innocent CHILD was KILLED today -- a beautiful little girl was brutally shot in the chest in an act of senseless violence. Why? All else pales beside this cold, tragic, and truly monstrous fact. I'm with you on that, Joolz. Please God, no death penalty for th...

Joolz wrote; It's long past time to rein it in. Will we NOW? Certainly not. This is America. We, as a people and as a country, are not pro-active. We're re-active. And when we do react we go way overboard with it. On 9/11/01 a bunch of terrorists hijacked three airliners to use as bombs. Reaction; i...

I'm curious, did your guides give you any instructions regarding this kind of ethical "dilemma"? Was there a provision for emergency extraction of an injured caver? I don't really remember any instructions, just that knee and elbow pads, and of course a helmet with a light were required. I do remem...

I can only speak from my own experience: Kinda-sorta spelunking in Inner Space Caverns. It was a dream adventure for me, doing a think I had wanted to do for a very long time. And all went well. But IF someone had been hurt ... I'd have done whatever was necessary to help get that person or persons ...

Perhaps I'm wrong, but wasn't he, more or less, considered a hero figure a year or two ago?

Just asking.

September 11. In my mind; It doesn't matter so much to me how it happened or why. What does matter is that on that day 3,000 lives were snuffed out of existence for no good reason that I can see. And millions more lives, to this day, still feel the effects. To quote an Eagles song; "There's a hole i...
