All the news I wish to print

There are all kinds of stories out there. Some will make you laugh, some will make you cry. Some will make you shrug, some will make you scream. Read any daily paper or listen to any newscast and your emotions can go from happy to sad to disbelief to fear to incredulity to horror to anger in very short order.
As we go along, there will be stories, as Paul Harvey used to say, to "wash your ears out with." There will be others that will make you feel like you need to be deloused simply by virtue of have in heard or read them. Some posts will be religious, some secular and for some I expect will defy easy classification in either category. I hope you will join me in this journey and pleas feel free to comment along the way.
For my part I pledge not to remove any posts unless they are vulgar, libelous, threatening or otherwise in violation of the standards of civil discussion. I will not remove any post simply because I disagree with it but I will reserve the right to respond to any challenges that come my way.
God bless you and welome to my blog.

Can Orwellian view screens be far behind? "Cameras, cameras everywhere" seems to be the mantra of Nanny Bloomberg. Already in lower Manhattan there is no where you can go in public space without being on someone's security camera. We seem to be giving up more and more of our freedom and privacy to the all encompassing goal of safety. If we surrender enough of the former the latter will be meaningless. A cage, no matter how beautifully disguised, is still a cage. Read on:
