Four hundred glaciers globally have simply melted into Earth’s atmosphere. Water cannot remain suspended forever. It will return to Earth in the form of floods as we have seen over decades globally.  The ocean is rising one inch per decade. In May 2019 the Mauna Loa laboratory in Hawaii registered unprecedented carbon dioxide levels at [...]

Another Suicidal Showdown At The Yalu River Near North Korea?

Gladys and Billy were an impoverished couple living on M.L. King Blvd. in Dallas. We met during 1989-1992 to consider their family issues. After a half hour of talking about intractable problems, I sheepishly suggested we go down the street for a milkshake. Suddenly family problems would be superficially minimized by sweet milkshakes. Both are [...]

Original Thought Is The Greatest Pleasure Known To Us

Roman Epicurean and/or hedonistic philosophers would quickly define the greatest pleasures as “eating, drinking, merry making.”  Emperors cleverly built coliseums in every major city from Rome to European colonies. Their sadistic games were held in “Circus Maximus” (the great circus) by which the masses were narcotized and immunized to the fact Rome’s empire was collapsing [...]

Christmas 2016 – Warnings, Migrant Births & Assistance From “Doulas”

The Berrigan brothers were prophetic leaders in the peace momentum. They followed an example of Gandhi, who read Jesus’ Beatitudes (Matthew V or Luke VI) every day. Like the uncertain number of arrests that their peace movement has endured, similarly could the Berrigans not enumerate their Pentagon visits.

NYC Slows Down To 25mph To Save Lives – Would Lafayette?

Although traffic jams could easily slow the flow of vehicles to the point where walking was faster, no mayor had the gumption to pass legislation reducing the speed to 25 m.p.h. Mayor John Lindsay in the 1970’s challenged residents by declaring, “You have every right to enter NYC, but you do not have a right to bring a ton of metal (before plastic was a vital component of cars) with you.”
