You And I Are Not Above Saying, “I love you.”

Please, please listen to one another. Before you blow that off, look around you.

Can't Wait To Get 'Back To Normal'?

Can’t Wait To Get ‘Back To Normal’?

I mentioned this a couple of weeks ago: Stop Pretending. The U.S.A. is never going to be “normal” again … as if “normal” is a good thing. A microscopic entity is doing what no politician, banker, physician, philosopher, attorney, arm-waving televangelical or madman could do.
