About Me

I love logic and respect feelings. My aspiration here is to engage in reasoned discourse. I believe that Truth Leaks. It may take the time span of a Grand Canyon to wear away at human deceit and denial, but truth always carves its own path.

Happy Birthday, Susan B. Anthony!

Let's hear it for the girl!*


* Yeah, I know. It should be "woman", not "girl", but I was thinking of the song.

The Original "Lady in Red"

Susan B. Anthony's birthday is February 15th. Ms. Anthony was known to wear a red shawl as she traveled around the country on her speaking engagements.

If you have a chance to get a hold of a red shawl, consider wearing it between now and Valentine's Day. When people note the color or ask if it related to the lover's holiday, you can bring up the subject of the famous Suffragette.

It's a small way to bring history and women's rights into a conversation. It helps people to think about the way the world has changed and how hard people worked in the past to affect those changes.

Remembering a mighty American hero is never a bad thing. Especially now, we need to hold on and celebrate the memory of all those heroes whenever we have a chance.

Thank you, Susan B., Sojourner, and Lucretia. Thank you for being the sort of "outrageous" women that Republicans would decry and for making it possible for even women to become stupid Republicans.

When Don Jr. made a comment about Satan quoting Scripture. . .

. . . To suggest that Nancy Pelosi lied when she stated that she prays for his father, I knew that he was incorrect.

My Bible-believing days are behind me, but I did remember that in one of the Gospels Satan quotes Scripture to Jesus.

Well, thanks to this article at Huff Post, my memory was jogged with a brilliant insight.

The story of Satan's temptation of Jesus is related in three of the four Gospels. But what is really interesting is that the point of the story is that Satan tries to get Jesus to use his Super-Savior powers to pump up his own (Jesus') profile.

Satan is basically telling Jesus, "Come on, Dude. If you have it, flaunt it. Enough of this humility act."

Since that perspective pretty much sums up the Trump Family Credo, then Junior being in ignorance of this particular moral lesson from the New Testament is rich in irony supplements.
