still catching up on history posts
Topic: History

Started reading this blog a few months ago.  A LOT of long posts.  A LOT of heavy deep thought.  But well worth the visit.  Suggest you add it to your reading list. 

Were There Dark Ages?

WHAT WAS THIS APE DOING IN EUROPE OVER NINE MILLION YEARS BEFORE HIS FAMILY LEFT AFRICA?  Probably standing on the corner, minding his own business, but all the same… 9.7 million-year-old teeth could ‘rewrite’ human history.

THEN: A Trump Meltdown For The Ages:

It was a display that will renew questions about the suitability of Trump’s temperament for the presidency, and at a time of increasing tensions around the world that will exacerbate fears he will be unable to control his emotions at a time of crisis as commander-in-chief. . . .

“This week it’s Robert E. Lee. I noticed that Stonewall Jackson’s coming down. I wonder, is it George Washington next week? And is it Thomas Jefferson the week after?”

NOW: George Washington’s Church Says Plaque Honoring The First President Must Come Down.

Christmas movies 4
Topic: Movies
1938 A Christmas Carol.  June Lockhart. A delightful Tiny Tim.  Eery Ghost of Christmas yet to come.  My favorite telling of the tale, but no one elses!  And no, the George C Scott version doesn't make the list!

still tryig to catch up
Topic: Media

on media stuff, but they're basically one long youtube video of clowns stepping on rakes.

CAN HE MOVE ELSEWHERE NOW?  Chuck Todd Seems to Think the Declaration of Independence Is ‘Very Fundamentalist’.  China, Cuba, Venezuela seem to align with his beliefs that rights are something the government giveth and the government taketh away.  He should be happy there.

UGLY: CBS Legal Exec: No Sympathy For Vegas ‘Because Country Music Fans Often Are Republican.’

LAYERS OF EDITORS AND FACT-CHECKERS! CHECK OUT THE CORRECTION TO THIS POLITICO PIECE:

DAVID HARSANYI: 10 Times CNN Told Us An Apple Was A Banana.  I'm pretty sure that ad campaign lasted about 20 nanoseconds.

APPARENTLY FOOTLOOSE DOES NOT PRESENT AN ACCURATE DEPICTION OF FLYOVER AMERICA:  Former NPR CEO opens up about liberal media bias.  Shocked, shocked, shocked. This is my shocked face!

State Licensing Laws Are Mostly Awful; Sen. Mike Lee Might Have a Solution

Adi Astl just wanted some stairs on a steep hill in Toronto's Tom Riley Park. City officials told him it would cost $65,000 to $150,000 to build stairs there. So he went in and built his own for $550. Officials then declared those stairs a hazard and tore them down. They now promise to build a set of stairs there, and they say it will only cost $10,000.

Christmas Cheer
Topic: misc

I'm getting my Christmas Spirit back.

It's been gone for two decades and recognizing why it was gone helped me find it again. Which is amazing for an old single guy not named Scrooge.

My Christmases have gone in roughly 20-year cycles. The first 20 years was the childhood Christmas, glowing now in misty memories like one of those videotape Hallmark holiday specials. Grandparents house. Family. That tree. Those rooms. That flow. That was the 60's and 70's.

And then the older generation died. Literally. And the scene shifted to my parents house. The rooms changed. The people changed. No longer just family, our holiday no reached out to family. Boy and girlfriends. High school, college and business associates. Neighbors. That was the 80's and 90's.

Then came marriages and grandchildren. One would think that would strengthen the pull of Christmas joy. But it didn't for me. In over two dozen years of gift giving I rarely made my wife happy. Money was tight. My judgment was awful. It was Shane Falco quicksand. The worse it got the more I struggled and that meant the worse it got. Family obligations were just that: obligations, not joyful opportunities. That was the 00's and the 10's.

But now we enter a new age. Divorced. Living alone. Parents aging. Neighborhood drop ins are dwindling. The children are grown and bringing their own boy/girlfriends/spouses – and dogs. Money is …. OK. Nobody has any gift expectations. Hell if I get em ANYTHING they're surprised and pleased. How many more of these will we have at mom and dads? Three? Two? And after that, what? I'm not going to pick up the traces and pull the wagon. My sister will try but it won't be the same. The continuity won't be there. It won't be a flow but forced.

So I've already decided that, health and finances allowing, when my parents pass, I will spend my holidays volunteering. Secret Santa. Serving meals. Visiting hospitals. Trying to lighten the load of others. And all of this came to me this morning on the way to school while listening to Bing sing White Christmas, as it should be.
