    I was talking to a friend of mine and out of the blue he gave me a funny look. Well, I say that but there's no real point in blaming him for my troubles.

    I admire the people who are loudly, even angrily speaking out against the spending of money on the cathedral at Notre Dame while so much human suffering goes on, unabated.


    I admire them for their own sacrifices, which must be considerable--for eschewing take-out, movies, cell phones, cigarettes, alcohol, and God alone knows what else, in order to see that their funds go where the human need is greater. They're remarkable human beings who deserve our respect, even if we aren't quite up to emulating them.


    For the rest of us though, who would be hypocritical posting from our personal devices instead of the public library, who have a drink from time to time, vacation, or do any number of needless if selfishly satisfying things, maybe, instead, it's a perfect opportunity to realize that there are issues requiring our consideration and concern that may have gone without it. Maybe, instead of playing one part against the other, we should consider how actively involved we are in the whole and galvanize our own moral conscience, let the one dramatically presented need spur us to a larger consideration and course of action.


    If we do that, then the tragedy of that fire will be transformed into something noble, worthwhile, even beautiful...much like the cathedral of Notre Dame itself.

    I think wealthy donors in question here are following the Lord's counsel in Matthew 13:44 KJV. They believe that Notre Dame cathedral is crucial wrt the Kingdom of God, and they've 'put their money where their mouth is.'

    I completely agree that if we feel led to give more, that we should give more to the Catholic Church in some way, as these wealthy donors in question here have done.

    Took the word association test for dominant personality traits and mine came back as "kindness"...so I reported them.

    Yes, the "Greatest Generation" did a lot of amazing things, without question...but did anyone else noticed that they also produced most of the things they then had to fight off?

    I mean, we can laugh at the millenials, but so far the worst they've done is promote narcissistic use of social media and bad music.

    Took the "Which Character From Tombstone Are You?" quiz.

    My result: Doug.

    Apparently, the president wanted to keep the USS John McCain hidden from view during his visit to Japan.

    Well, you know what they say, "Out of sight, out of your mind."

    Or his aides who are scared spitless of his temper tantrums...

    Here’s the fabled email instructing the Navy to keep the USS McCain out of sight during President Trump’s visit to Japan:



    Also from the link:
    President Trump says he knew nothing about this. The secretary of defense says he knew nothing about it either. I believe them. This was cooked up by Trump aides in the White House who were worried that Trump might have a meltdown if saw the McCain in port.

    Just think about that. Trump’s staff lives in such terror of their man-child that they were afraid he might explode during a military review if he happened to catch sight of the words “USS John McCain” on the side of a naval vessel. Ladies and gentlemen, this is your commander-in-chief.

    Tried and waited then got tired, that's about it

    From a friend of mine elsewhere on the topic of PC speech and whether, as another friend suggested, it was a call for censorship:

    "It's not the words that are politically incorrect [that is the problem] it's the implied meaning they are given when used in a certain context. For example, if someone says, "Black lives matter," and another person responds with, "All lives matter," they are using that phrase to diminish the first statement [and not to uplift the larger group]. It's not calling for censorship, it's calling for decency." John Michael Daw
