UNCOMMON COMMON SENSE - NOVEMBER 2015
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice Is also great
And would suffice.
I think people are crazy. That’s a big problem.
Tianguis market beckons me,
Your Wednesday’s camaraderie,
Your vivid palette to behold,
Your produce ripe, your colors bold,
Your spirit young, your manners old.
THE GIFT OF “THE DONALD”
Your last graph is particularly insightful, Clare. Yes, the Spiritual Bypass beckons but not for me or thee. A well-written article that expresses our deepest concerns--your gift to understanding the problem and the solution. Thank you...
“...greater harmony, for collaboration and cooperation, for compassion and solutions” TRUMP? Let’s just look at his statement that Mexicans crossing the border are rapist and criminals. Don’t think money is intelligence. Trump is an idiot. More an uncompassionate manipulator creating disharmony for his personal gain.
I’m afraid I don’t see how you got from The Donald to cooperation and compassion. Given Lell’s comment, I must be missing something.
THE DANGEROUS BOOK FOR BOYS—And the Death of Childhood
I was a boy raised in a funeral home. I loved the outdoors for obvious reasons. The snow we got in Ohio during the Battle of the Bulge was glorious for our trench and tunnel warfare. I doubt that 1-in-10 women around age 80 even remember it. I rest my case. I so enjoy L.S.’s ability to crank our engaging stuff.
NOTES FROM THE QUEBEC WILDERNESS
Good story until you got to the part of killing the bears.
Bears are hunted in the North. That is a fact. It is not as though I approve, although I understand that this helps control the population which might otherwise become a menace.
SOMEONE WAS GOING TO DIE
Good story! Kept me on edge throughout, with a terrific surprise ending.
UNDOCUMENTED MEXICANS AND THE 2016 U.S. ELECTIONS
Just last week, the auto makers said they are shifting more small car production down to Mexico. If this turns into a Business trend we may see “majority” U S citizens seeking work permits in Mexico.
