About Me

DU 2 to should be introduced and married to DU 3. They should produce offspring who represent the best of both parents.

Back in the days when I lived in Florida, I knew Governor Bob Graham was engaged with the constituency. He introduced state inspection (which at the time cost $3!).

I've admired him since, was sad to see him step away from the Senate, and salute his efforts today!

Post analysis finds few prosecutions among thousands of fatal shootings by on-duty police

Ref: Washington Post

Among the thousands of fatal shootings at the hands of police since 2005, only 54 officers have been charged, a Post analysis found. Most were cleared or acquitted in the cases that have been resolved.

I've been viewing posts and videos here, listening to what my fellow DUers have to say. Again and again, there are low post numbered therein…

Are the more "privileged" of color that silent? Have any of you written to the aforementioned police departments informing them that we are watching them closely? Or, are you afraid of being watched closely yourselves? Actually, I'm not afraid of that at all, since we are already watched closely.

May as well tell them what you think and how unacceptable you think this is.

Billy Holiday was born 100 years ago...

She was born exactly one year after my mommy. I never knew that her most affecting song, "Strange Fruit" was written by Abel Meeropol, a white, Jewish high school teach from the Bronx and a member of the Communist Party.

Here's the song and the story in remembrance of Billy Holiday…


Thank you for choosing to serve. Unfortunately, that Jury is full.

Enough, already! I've gotten a continual loop of this.

If I answer it ten more times, then I'll set a fucking record!

So, who is watching back episodes of Orphan Black as we wait for April 18th?

If you have Comcast, then you'd check in here: http://xfinitytv.comcast.net/watch/Orphan-Black/7064684981656793112/full-episodes#episode=6779150309143397112

If you are a subscriber to BBC America, you can get access to seasons one and two, which our family is enjoying online.

Meanwhile, I sincerely hope that Orphan Black is not over-looked for it's EXCELLENT content and acting. I want it to go beyond it's "3 season arc" writing.

Some leakers are more equal than other leakers, aren't they?

"Thanks, Mr. President! She wasn't going to tell anybody important, anyway!"

UGH - What a disaster!

I was SO looking forward to making what is supposed to be an exceptionally good korma from a long held Classic Indian Cooking book of mine. But, BOY, what a hot mess I made of it.

Now, all I can do is pick out the burnt onions and try to add a separate batch of onions. Breaks my heart.

Royal Braised Vegetables in Cardamom Nut Sauce (Shahi Sabz Korma)

I prepped all ingredients that were carefully chopped uniformly 1/4 inch x 1/4 inch x 1 and 1/4 length (potatoes, turnips, carrot). Where I screwed up was after the initial part, where the same uniformly cut paneer (Indian Cheese) was fried, then set aside. It called me to add the rest of the vegetable oil, and then on "high" fry onions, garlic, ginger root and green chiles for 10 minutes, stirring constantly.

Well, my stove is new (I know I was supposed to post pictures of my new kitchen, but I haven't yet). My burners must put out WAY more on "high", and in a very short time, I singed the MO-FO!

I can't stand it, but I'm much the wiser now. I don't think I'm gonna try this again until the spirit really moves me.

Equal Justice for Petraeus and Snowden?

The sweetheart deal the Justice Department gave to former CIA Director David Petraeus for leaking top secret information compared to the stiff jail sentences other low-level leakers have received under the Obama administration has led to renewed calls for leniency for NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. And no one makes the case better than famed whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg.

Ellsberg, the first person ever charged under the Espionage Act or any other statute for leaking the Pentagon Papers to Congress and 17 newspapers, told me on Thursday: “The factual charges against are not more serious, as violations of the classification regulations and non-disclosure agreements, than those Petraeus has admitted to, which are actually quite spectacular.”

Equal Justice for Petraeus and Snowden?
March 6, 2015

The Justice Department’s decision to let ex-CIA Director Petraeus off with a hand slap for giving his mistress highly sensitive secrets raises questions about the harsh punishments meted out to lower-level leakers/truth-tellers — and the threat of a long prison term for NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, writes Trevor Timm.

Is it me, or can't people distinguish what our government will do to a person's whistle blowing after discovery of unlawful spying programs versus a decorated general who can't keep it in his pants providing his girlfriend top secret information?

What does 5.5% unemployment translate into, Mr. and Mrs. America?

Would you like me to super-size that? How about a side of fries with your order for an extra $1.50?

I see we are supposed to be elated over job growth, but the mall had a shooting by an 18 year old, and 18 year olds and under must be accompanied by an adult on Friday and Saturdays.

What's in the mall?

21 Forever

Theaters playing Sponge Bob, Duff and Disney film coming attractions

More tween stores and young, frustrated people offering tea samples…

Where are we going here?
