But the last people you want to ask about appropriate policy are people who have been warning about inflation year after year. Not only have they been consistently wrong, they’ve staked out a position that, whether they know it or not, is essentially political rather than based on analysis. They should be listened to politely — good manners are always a virtue — then ignored.
Why I won’t be seeing Sin City 2. Aside from Martha Washington, “The Hard Goodbye”, and Dark Knight Returns, the man’s output is garbage.
In Mississippi, there is only one clinic where a woman can go if she needs an abortion. The state is trying to close it down. At that clinic, there is a doctor who tends to the needs of these women, and he has to fly in from out of state to do it. There i
Pretty enraging read for this Thursday morning.
My family has always been private about our time spent together. It was our way of keeping one thing that was ours, with a man we shared with an entire world. But now that’s gone, and I feel stripped bare. My last day with him was his birthday, and I will be forever grateful that my brothers and I got to spend that time alone with him, sharing gifts and laughter. He was always warm, even in his darkest moments. While I’ll never, ever understand how he could be loved so deeply and not find it in his heart to stay, there’s minor comfort in knowing our grief and loss, in some small way, is shared with millions. It doesn’t help the pain, but at least it’s a burden countless others now know we carry, and so many have offered to help lighten the load. Thank you for that.
To those he touched who are sending kind words, know that one of his favorite things in the world was to make you all laugh. As for those who are sending negativity, know that some small, giggling part of him is sending a flock of pigeons to your house to poop on your car. Right after you’ve had it washed. After all, he loved to laugh too…
Dad was, is and always will be one of the kindest, most generous, gentlest souls I’ve ever known, and while there are few things I know for certain right now, one of them is that not just my world, but the entire world is forever a little darker, less colorful and less full of laughter in his absence. We’ll just have to work twice as hard to fill it back up again.
My only statement. My brothers’ are also online. Thank you for all your kindness, and goodbye for awhile guys. xo (via zeldawilliams)
:( I’m sorry for your loss. May your father’s memory be a blessing.
drydenlane said: Hi there. I blog at thebroadcastblog. I wasn't super clear on this perhaps, but while Mo'ne's story got plenty of airtime yesterday and today, a profile before the shutout was published on ESPNW, while ESPN didn't pick the story up till later. Just wanted to clarify!
Ah! No worries. Thanks for the clarification!
"What’s wrong with death sir? What are we so mortally afraid of? Why can’t we treat death with a certain amount of humanity and dignity, and decency, and God forbid, maybe even humor. Death is not the enemy, gentlemen. If we’re going to fight a disease, let’s fight one of the most terrible diseases of all, indifference."
Thirteen year old Mo’ne Davis pitched a shutout game this weekend, lifting her Pennsylvania Little League team to the Little League World Series. Just to be clear, she doesn’t play on a softball or girls baseball Little League team. Mo’ne Davis gave up just three hits to the boys on the opposing team and didn’t allow any runs to score. But you won’t find her profile on ESPN. Click over to ESPNW to learn more about this very cool and super talented young pitcher. She dreams of playing in the WNBA, but personally I would love to see her pitching in the good ole MLB.
This year, for the first time, two girls will play in the Little League World Series.
