"I am thankful for people. I am thankful for my family. I am thankful for the few friends who have stayed friends with me -- as difficult as that may be- over the years. And, although I miss my friends more than I can possibly express, I am thankful that most of them are just an email away when I need to reach out- even if I usually decide to not bother them."

"A suicide bomber attacked a British Embassy vehicle in the eastern part of the Afghan capital Thursday, killing at least five and injuring more than 30, according to law enforcement officials. It’s the latest in a spate of assaults targeting foreigners as most U.S. and international troops are preparing to withdraw by the end of the year. Authorities said the attacker detonated a car filled with explosives near the British vehicle, killing one British citizen and four Afghans." (11/27/14)

"American political rhetoric is often like American politicians themselves: bland, oblivious, tone-deaf, and inimical to the cause of liberty. Whenever they say stupid things, we mock them for it, and justly so. But there’s another type of political rhetoric less entertaining but often far more harmful: the plain speech of the authority figure refusing to do anything which might in any way challenge the structure of which he is part. This is what we saw last night (Nov. 24) when St. Louis County prosecutor Robert McCulloch announced to the press that the grand jury convened by his office had decided there was no probable cause to pursue charges against police officer Darren Wilson for the fatal shooting of teenager Michael Brown."

"An Egyptian court has sentenced 78 minors to between two and five years in prison for taking part in demonstrations calling for the return of ousted president Mohammed Mursi. The authorities have engaged in a crackdown on Dr Mursi's supporters since his overthrow by the army last year, with hundreds jailed in mass trials which the United Nations has described as 'unprecedented in recent history.' On Wednesday, a court in the city of Alexandria sentenced 78 teenage boys aged from 13 to 17 for joining Muslim Brotherhood rallies during the past three months, a judicial official said."

What do the facts and reality have to do with it?

"The headline for the lead news story in RRND today reads: 'MO: Grand jury gives cop killer a pass.' Obviously, the author of that headline thinks that the cop who shot Michael Brown in Ferguson Missouri on August 9, 2014 is a murderer who got off scot free for the crime. ... Facts, evidence, reason, logic, truth -- the entire reality of existence go flying out the window in situations like this when otherwise intelligent human beings experience a knee jerk emotional reaction to an event. White cop shoots black teenager equals murder no matter what the reality. Well, that simple equation just doesn’t add up in this case." (11/26/14)
