By Cam Rea General Publius Ventidius is probably one of the most overlooked, if not completely forgotten, generals in military history. Maybe it is because Ventidius grew up poor like most Romans… Or perhaps it was due to the reports that he sold mules and wagons before joining the Roman army. Despite this, Ventidius wouldRead More

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as: - Knowing when to come in out of the rain; - Why the early bird gets the worm; ... - Life isn't always fair; - And maybe it was my fault. Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies, don't spend more than you can earn and adults, not children, are in charge. His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition. Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion. Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims. Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault. Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement. Common Sense was preceded in death, by his parents, Truth and Trust, by his wife Discretion, his daughter Responsibility, and his son, Reason. He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers - I Know My Rights, I Want It Now, Someone Else Is To Blame and I'm A Victim. Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on.

I've been speechless for 12+ hours.

Anyone who knows me knows that's almost impossible to fathom.  I talk constantly.  Mostly to myself, but I talk.  A lot.  

We were watching QI on DVD at home and my Mom called with the news that Robin Williams was dead of an apparent suicide.  Speechless doesn't begin to cover how I feel.  

I cried.  Honestly.  Celebrity deaths typically don't affect me other than, well, that's sad.  This one is different.  The last time I cried about the death of someone I wasn't either related to or intimately familiar with was Dale Earnhardt.  

I grew up with Robin Williams, I watched Mork and Mindy religiously. His stand ups are just genius.  When I had children they watched Aladdin.  Repeatedly.  

Good Morning Vietnam was amazing. (And still one of my all-time favorites.)  Seemed like he had no limits to what he could do.  Comedy, drama, you name it.  

But, he had his kryptonite.  Addiction.  Cocaine, alcohol.  Which was (most likely) the cause of his depression.  I know what that is like.  Depression is a walking nightmare.  It's not something you can just 'smile away' or 'suck it up'.  It took antidepressants to get mine controlled.  That was 10 years, but I can still remember feeling grayscale in a world of color.  

It's a dark and rainy day here in Chapel Hill.  Fits with my emotions.  

RIP, Robin.  You may have lived in the shadows of your own mind, but you made everyone else enjoy life and love and happiness.  Rest now, your fight is over.

Wow, this is fascinating. I got they find out more about this ship.
Tree rings in the waterlogged ribs of a sunken ship found at the World Trade Center site revealed that the vessel was likely built in 1773, or soon after, in a small shipyard around Philadelphia.

If you want an open internet, one NOT controlled by the idiots at Verizon, Comcast, TimeWarner, et al., then petition the FCC and Congress NOW.

RIP Casey Kasem. One big voice in my childhood gone. Watching Scooby Doo won't be the same. Never really thought I'd see the day the voice of Shaggy would be gone.....
