The Terrorists Have Won

Today, the news emerged that the clinic Dr. Tiller ran will be shut down for good.  There are rumblings that one of the other doctors there wishes to carry on, but we will have to wait and see on that.  For now, the clinic is closed, and the terrorists have won, and Ross Douthat, the… Continue Reading

My Life to Order

I am a great one for making lists.  No, really, I am.  The problem is in implementing the items on my list, but I find that a deadline really helps.  So.  If you recall, I wrote four things that I want to do with my life right now.  I was pretty broad about the list,… Continue Reading

Stalking the Enemy

It is funny, to me, anyway, that I am blogging about sleep rather than actually trying to sleep.  As I have documented in the past, I have a very rocky history with Lord Morpheus.  In fact, I have written a novel about it, including many of my more outre dreams in the three-hundred page epic.… Continue Reading

Destination Unknown

First, your video for the day.  It’s Destination Unknown by Missing Persons.  Why?  Because. Second, I’m going to tell you a little story.   Once upon a time, I used a typewriter.  I know, I know, so quaint!  I thought it was a big deal when I got a typewriter that had the key you… Continue Reading

I Matter, Part Deux

Ok.  In the last post, I detailed how I realized I mattered in relation to the abortion issue.  Go read it.  I’ll wait. Now, I am going to expand on it a bit as I cross over into my personal life.  As is my way, I’m going to tell you a long, meandering story about… Continue Reading

I Matter

I matter.  You matter.  We all matter.  Right now, though, I’m going to talk about the first one.  Why?  Because for far too long, I haven’t thought that I mattered.  Not in a global sense (such as, where do I fit in this world).  Not in a societal sense (such as, I am no benefit… Continue Reading

The Baser Side of Me

I’m still grieving.  I have read many things in lefty blogs about Dr. Tiller’s murder, and I can’t seem to shake it.  Partly because I was lulled into thinking that this kind of violence was in the past.  Partly because I am just so damn discouraged at how the GOP still gets to define how… Continue Reading
