Very nice poetry,  Suzanne.  I like that you offer vivid images, the grounded airplane as metaphor,  the water the skies no longer want, the watch you do not wear, the bees swarming to their sugar -  I would not know where to begin which is why I feel safer but also a bit cowardly being its critic than to risk being its parent.
I get sick of their banter Their meaningless exchanges of words Tossed back and forth the way words should never be tossed Frivolously, avant-garde Phony normality meant to calm the nerves of minds like mine? With cynicism an...

THE GOLDEN RULE AMENDMENT...Someone dug deep and came up with a gem of an idea!!
 
UNEXPLAINABLE, INEXCUSABLE

I challenge you to read this and NOT have the will to click share.

No one has been able to explain to me why young men and women serve in the U.S. Military for 20 years, risking their lives protecting freedom, and only get 50% of their pay. While Politicians hold their political positions in the safe confines of the capital, protected by these same men and women, and receive full pay retirement after serving one term. It just does not make any sense.

If each person that reads this will click share, in three days, most people in the United States of America will have the message.. This is one proposal that really should be passed around.

Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution: 

"Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States ."

It seems plausible....but If only two of the S.F. Mongolians could be traced to "Genghis Khan" that means their ancient common ancestor was not found...so we'd have to test more people to make certain major populations are not left out of the study.

It was not that only two Mongolians could be traced to this hypothetical G. Khan, but that only two of the men in this bar could be. They came up with the genotype of hypothetical Khan by finding the most common Y chromosone genotype in the population.

Missing your China updates!  Is Christmas at all "in the air" Chinese-style or is everything geared up for Chinese New Year's?

In Hamamatsu, the loudspeakers on the vans were so loud I had to stop the class till they past. And it wasn't advertising either but pure rightwing angst.  For a newly arrived foreigner it was a bit unsettling but for the Japanese it was just the way things were.
*no camera cord for now. but a ton of amazing pics to come! Well, now that I am finally in Jinyun I wish I wouldn't have been so apprehensive about coming. What a wonderful time I am having! Seriously, I needed this trip more...

On 11/11/11 I recognized the contribution of a burlesque dancer Paula Price whom I met in Tennessee performing in a night club.  Her birthday falls on this day. She was unique while in the business because she only perfomed sex scenes wih her boyfriend for the camera.  She was hurt on the job when she caught fire on stage and left the adult business and is now a soccer mom. Thinking of Price and Christ's dual suffering allowed me to move beyond my own bad experiences with pain in order to help our government focus on proactive measures to stop plots and reduce risk.

Just your average prince.
Introduction
I am Prince Blake from the United States. After college I moved to Japan where I opened a language school near the Inland Sea called Alamo.  I'm a bassist for Planet Erthe, a blogger and a former reliability engineer at Awtec, a GPS navigation company.
Bragging rights
As a reliabilty engineer I set about trying to repair a policy error I'd witnessed in Japan - the Bojinka response error - which would lead to disaster if uncorrected. Bojinka is likely pronounced 'BOYNKa' relating to the original plot which targeted 10-12 BOEING airliners. I was aware that concern over a re-grouped project BoY2Ka (read 2 as the letter 'N' rotating) was completely lost in the media frenzy surrounding the Y2K scare. I reported this error advising that the 'BoY2Ka' or 'Bojinka' plotters were the real threat. Televised reports of airport screening failures out of Boston surfaced in the LA news market amid other indicators. I asserted the plotters were likely in our flight schools where they should be stopped before they plowed planes into our buildings. I felt like a prince for recognizing and reporting the problem. I purchased the domain princeofearth.org. The counselor asked, "Why .org?" I explained that stopping the plot needed organization and that's what had brought me to the center. I felt like popping a champagne bottle and sharing this victory with the world. But instead of the plot being foiled, it thickened. After I began pleading to stop the plot, Awtec's lawyers came to the center at the Boeing Building to put pressure on the counselor for my signature. I reminded them they already had my signature allowing them to share information with law enforcement and should have already done so in regards to the information I'd given them about the Bojinka plot. I agreed to sign only after the counselor also agreed to give law enforcement the information about our Bojinka response error, and my plea to look in our flight schools for the plotters. This was my second request to forward the information to officials. The counselor agreed and confirmed with me, "You want the plot stopped," "YES!" I replied. The final time came at our last session. I told her I felt they were leaving it up to us to stop the plot and that we should continue to press the matter using the centers protocol for reporting matters to law enforcement. I said if they weren't responding we should not give up but go up the chain, telling anyone who would listen. Philip Zelikow recently stated that the BoY2Ka plotters success on 9/11 reflected some wild phenomena - guys coming from an area that didn't have running water executing a plot on such a massive scale. The wonderment Zelikow describes is shared by many on the left and preceded the plot. It is an impediment to overcome because it glamourizes pure evil. The plotters all had modern conveniences growing up, none lived a life of abject poverty so prevalent in many corners of the globe. Poverty of thought caused 9/11 not lack of financial resources. A New York law school offered a lecture series called 'Lawyering at the Edge' where for a hefty price tag members could attend the lecture of the key speaker, WTC terrorist's attorney Lynne Stewart. Lawyers may find it thrilling to lawyer from the edge but their client's suffering victims would beg to differ. My efforts to correct our course finally paid off in August 2006 after I once again pleaded repeatedly to stop the Bojinka plotters. Not only did we stop the trans-Atlantic BoY2Ka plot just in the nick of time, but we finally undertook serious measures to counter future plots.
