MBD is in the hospital. He'll be home tomorrow sufficiently recovered from his fall. But, I am afraid the curtain has risen on the last act....

Yeah, needing rehab is a major milestone. I don’t like the way the term “thoughts and prayers” is usually used, but I do think about you both a lot. My desire for you is that you have a sense of calm and peace. You deserve it, you’ve comforted your husband well.

In politics and media, bullying wars are fair game, apparently.

Even close friends in the peace and justice community
resort to namecalling and bullying to defend their turf. So it comes across
as VERY conflicted to claim "terrorists can be reasoned with diplomatically"
yet my own friends can't stand political opponents and resort to verbal attacks.
In a free country with "freedom of speech and press" we can use to make
peace through agreed solutions, but instead abuse it to cut other people and groups down.

Some kind of territorial pack-mentality
pecking order habit. Some tribes are not meant to mix
but repel each other. Others are the glue that connect
the groups together anyway. Until we agree where the boundaries
and limits are and map them out, people use bullying to mark their turf against invasive species.

Have people become so desensitized that they no longer realize that the phrase, “Don’t Let a good crisis go to waste” is a negative sentiment? It’s saying, let’s take advantage of the pain of others and exploit it to our benefit.

I’m sorry about this but I’ll be writing my motivations for this observation in a rambling post soon.

A special shout-out for whoever is responsible for warning me that a movie or program is going to include smoking.

I guess it makes sense that actors like Lori Laughlin wouldn’t be totally virtuous like their fictional characters; because then you’d be expect people like Alec Baldwin and Robert De Niro would have to be total jerks in real life... oh wait

I have to double up my tweets after learning the prosecutors in the Laughlin case used entrapment. In other words, the crime wouldn’t have been committed if it weren’t for the prosecutor.

So why can’t we leave cars running in poor neighborhoods and arrest anybody who steals them?
