Fight the Power
Sometimes, You've Just Got To Say "WHAT THE HELL?" It may surprise many of my friends, especially those who have only known me since adulthood, that when I was younger, I had a pretty strong anti-authoritarian streak.  These days, perhaps as a reaction to l...

In the Interest of Creating a Free and Open Dialogue...
....sit silently and watch this film.   One of my favourite tart quotes from The Simpsons , now nearly 20 years ago (I think). Apparently, back in the US, there is a mini-tempest swirling around the forced, auto-da-fe  of (now ex) Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich. ...

One Point Twenty-One Gigawatts
Here in France, and I suppose all over Europe as well, the motorways are blighted with 'speed cameras.'  I personally have received a present from the authorities in the mail. Turns out, based on a study conducted in the UK, the solution may appuyez sur l'a...

(弱肉強食) Weak Meat, Strong Eat

Marching to the Beat of Another Drummer: Round and Round We Go
Do YOU March to the Beat? With the onset of spring and warmer, longer days here in France, I've adjusted to a degree my workout routines.  Paris sits at a surprisingly high northern latitude, at least to this US expat, which means darker winters and brighte...

There Is No "ME" in Children. It's Really That Simple
