Quite...

I think you people are stone cold silent about this flood, because really, there’s no agenda to push. There’s no side to take. There’s nobody to blame. So even though you don’t seem in the least bit curious, here’s what’s been happening around here since you left.”

Cross went on to praise the Cajun Navy, as well as other citizens who’ve stepped up to help the community in their time of need...

Wouldn't efficiency and better, more sustainable living be more important?

How about local living rather than flying jets across the globe? Video-conferencing rather than business travel? How about solar cell farms rather than oil and natural gas powering turbines? Salt water conversion for our use that is cleaned in wetlands and allowed to refill aquifers? Oh, the possibilities...

There are lots of things we could do to improve the planet that has little to do with the number of children everyone has...

Of course, reproductive rights do need to be discussed-only so much space here...


For some climate activists, the personal decision to have a child is also fraught with moral consequences: the negative impact on the environment, and on the quality of life for those children.

Interesting...

"The ethical question boils down to whether the commercial interests of humans should be allowed to outweigh the vital interests [in this case, rest] of dolphins," Dr. Rowland tells The Christian Science Monitor by email. "The fundamental precept of the animal rights movement is that commercial interests of humans should not be allowed to outweigh vital interests – even if those interests belong to nonhuman animals."

Is rest, or other "viral interests," more important than life?

See that?
A federal agency is proposing rules to keep humans farther away from dolphins, a move that sets animal welfare and Hawaii's tourism industry at odds.

Consuming the Carolina Reaper is “kind of like eating molten lava.”

After 13 hours...

Perhaps Niantic's softban might also help get players out of the game and back into, well, life.
Pokemon GO cheaters are a huge problem for the game. The tools that they use are a drain on the servers, and their antics normally end up being a serious i

Step up and help...
Before he took his own life, Daniel Fitzpatrick wrote a final, heartbreaking letter lamenting that nearly no one tried to help him.

Diabetics are portrayed as idiot weaklings in this show... Incorrectly, I might add.

Avoiding carbs significantly reduces insulin requirements.

Diabetics do not forget to give insulin-even in emergencies.

It would be nice if portrayal of a group of people could be a bit more accurate...

He has the freedom to speak, and that freedom should be protected-for everyone.

If the KKK can walk down mainstreet, so can any Black Separatist group, Religious group, etc.

One does not have to like the speech, but we should not just protect speech that only "our group," whatever that is, likes or finds acceptable.

We extend the same freedoms to everyone...

If only we could sit down, remain calm, and picture the view while wearing another person's shoes (from their perspective), we might be able to understand the differences of opinion held by many.

There will be no understanding or solution if we continue to only view the world through our own rose-colored glasses...

Jenny Dawkins, a Church of England priest, told CNN she joined the protest after seeing a photo of the incident in Nice.

"I think it's a frightening image," she said. "I find it quite chilling to see an image of a woman surrounded by men with guns being told to take her clothes off."


French mayors do not have the right to ban burkinis, the French Council of State ruled Friday.

Now it hits the Dems... Strategy, folks. Do both teams seem to miss these issues or is it that both were hoping that nobody would notice?
On the trail Hillary Clinton has promised to crack down on for-profit colleges, but she and her husband have many ties to Walden University.
