About Me

I joined DU following the election melt down that produced the second George the Lesser Term of Office. I am outraged by war, by out-sourcing of jobs, by Corporate control of both parties, and enheartened by my fellow citizens who are bravely part of "Occupy!"

A Thanksgiving Tale... An anthropologist proposed a game to children in an African tribe.

He put a basket full of fruit near a tree and told the kids that who ever got there first won the sweet fruits.

When he told them to run, they all took each others hands and ran together, then sat together enjoying their treats.

When he asked them why they had run like that as one could have had all the fruits for himself they said: "UBUNTU, how can one of us be happy if all the other ones are sad"? BUNTU in the Xhosa culture means: "I am because we are".

A silver lining re: Sandy and Rockaway beach

Seems with all the beach re-arranging that Sandy did, there is this one upside - fossils might now be easier to find:
