Great Book

I went out and bought the book co-authored by Michael Smerconish and Maureen Faulkner the other night. Good book so far, detailing the murder of Danny Faulkner 26 years ago, and the insanity that is the justice system in that the murderer, sentenced to death by a jury, is still alive and holding protests from his jail cell. Anyway, over at American Thinker is an article that deals with the racial undertones in this case, put forth in a way that most people would be afraid to do. I am going to link the article, but so I am not called a hypocrite, so I am on record as standing for my convictions, I will write here that Mumia is only alive today because of his race. If he were white and Faulkner black, he would be dead.

Which River?

Which river? Seriously, which river is Zakk Wylde talking about in the song In this River? It is a good song, written before one of his buddies was killed by some nut on stage, another guitarist, but now Zakk dedicates the song to him.

    I ask the question because the refrain is: In this river all shall fade to black.
So, is it the river of life? Or one of the rivers of Hell? Oh, you only know of the one? The river Styx? Oh, wait a minute, you don't even know about that one? C'mon dear reader, get with it, there is more to life than politics and Gorebul Warming, there is history, literature, and poems that would rock your world…if only the time was taken to discover them.

    Paradise lost, and regained. Or perhaps Greek mythology, or, perhaps, even futher back and further away. Now, there are more than the one river, there are five of them that wind around the underworld, or so it is told, and they separate us from them, the living from the dead, the good from the evil.

    If Zakk refers to the river of life, he is mistaken about it all fading to black, it only fades if you let it, if you give in, give up.

    Light is at the end, hope and love…

Taxes gone wild

Okay, it has gone far enough. This is just insanity. How can people thinking this manner? I just hope that this turns around before it costs humanity in ways we can not recoup. If we allow these insane thoughts to prevail, the lowest common denominator will rise up and take over the world, and we will all rue the day we taxed babies.

Good news

Ahhh, more good news from Iraq. Funny, you will not read about this in the inky or the ny times!
