  1. Unindependence Day!

    Needless to say I have decided that I will no longer be celebrating the 4th of July aka Independence Day. In our house we started referring to it as National BBQ Day. I had actually come to this idea before it became an actual poplar movement. I think it is kind of cool that as soon as I thought of doing this, everyone started talking about doing the same thing online. But me reasons are slightly different than that of most people.

    The majority of people who are talking about boycotting ...

  2. There and Gone and Back Again

    Yes it has been a long time, and a lot has happened, but I am still alive, I did not fall into a black hole, and in spite of my many efforts to summon Cthulhu I have not become lost in the vast abyss. It is possible though that I have fallen through a rabbit hole or two and had to attempt to navigate a mad mad world. And maybe for a while I have lingered in the land of the lotus eaters.

    So now I am going to attempt to re-enter reality...or was I in reality before and I am now attempting ...

    Up until a few decades ago, women controlled everything, and they did so by indirection. They did not hold top positions in government or business, at least not for the most part, and they didn’t control through government or business. They controlled through nature.

    From a young age, women, girls even, learned and still learn that they must control themselves, and that might be why they develop a lack of self-confidence by age eight. Maybe they realize how difficult it will be to ...
  4. Ignorance Over All Else

    I was going to write about the predilection of people in scientific positions to ignore facts and follow things that were common beliefs before the science was discovered. Then I saw a column from the Boston Globe regarding a push to change the name of George Washington University, because George Washington had owned slaves, and that reminded me of the move by ignorant bigots to give “reparations” to people whose ancestors may have been slaves.

    I understand the disapproval of slavery, ...
  5. Sustainable population

    In addition to the pressure on farmland by the rising population, the amount of arable land that could be lost to oceans as sea level rises with further global warming is huge, and low-lying lands are some of the most fertile.
    If all glacial ice melted, then it is estimated that sea level would rise 230 feet. Since the last glacial maximum, sea level has risen about 400 feet, but different sources give a variety of figures. It has been estimated that sea level will rise by about twenty feet ...
