Due to a comment on another blog that seemed to question whether one could both proclaim that they are an American (instead of a Hyphen-American) and celebrate their heritage, I present this rambling rant. My mother is an American. Her mother is of Slovakian descent and her genetic father is Hungarian (by way of Czeckoslovakia). Her step-father is Pennsylvania Dutch and was the biggest influence upon her diet and cooking. I suppose she is guilty of not "celebrating her heritage" or some su...
April 7, 2007 by Gideon MacLeish on gideon's trumpet
Next Saturday, April 14, 2007, will mark the 72nd anniversary of "Black Sunday", the climax of the Dust Bowl and one of the most storied events of that era, memorialized both in film and in song. As Woody would write years later, "The churches was jammed and the churches was packed And that dusty old dust storm blowed so black That the preacher could not read a word of his text, So he folded his specs, took up the collection, said So Long, it's been good ta know yuh So Long, it...
As a student of the bible, I love to hear about the discoveries that have over the years only given much credence to this book. There have been many stories of brilliant minds that have attempted to disprove the scriptures only to succumb to the realization that the bible is truly a magnificant piece of literature unlike any other. William Albright, known for his reputation as one of the great archaeologists, said: "There can be no doubt that archaeology has confirmed the substantial hist...
Walter Reed (1851-1902) was a remarkable researcher in the field of medicine and deserves to have his name memorialised in a fitting manner. As an army doctor he woeked with great alacrity in the relentless wars of extermination that the US military waged against the native first peoples of the North American continent. He worked in Cuba after the Spanish American war. He was the first to discover that Yellow Fever was caused by vectors and this discovery enabled the US troops to operate with a...

the death threats start Yea, just try... this soldier boy ain't so easy to kill. Jason Pettus had to quit taking comments because of all the death threats. And he is not political..... he writes gen x romance/slice of life (x-rated, often... if his writing does not turn you on, you are altogether dead to the entire realm of the fuck) and high tech articles, and anything else he wants. JASON listens to no one, because no one is qualified to think PETTUS right now. Ther...
THIS TIME AROUND you left us STARVING too long we learned to play our hunger like a dark symphony HEAR THE THUNDER OF OUR DRUMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
in the morning as you walk down to the pub for an eye opener and a bit of breakfest... You pay heavy taxes and don't even get a decent wooden sidewalk over the muddy streets... You've been sick of the world for sometime, but what could one person do? Well, that fine morning, you see on the walls and poles and everywhere... someone has snuck in during the night and put up broadsides signed by (THOMAS) PAIN(E). You read the words and they stir you like a lover... you go home and get your gun; ...

Now, normally she keeps all the cash from me, because . . . truth be told, she keeps the cash away from exactly because of episodes like this. Regardless . . . this time, she left me the rent. 810 dollars cash in the hand. Green and hot. Now, M., she will just spend money without e...

the jackals shake Hunter S Thompson's Bones in a cup and toss them on a bear skin rug let them spin the future out randomly the verdict: go ahead and leave the masks on the monsters send them out into the future to kill again and again maybe next time they'll feed on your kid when someone like hunter s Thompson blows his brains into his orange juice in another literary death promoting suicide he dies in the grand old tradition of secretly prissy old men lot's of white guys h...
MUCH AS WE LOVE kevin, who works for joe moore, -- I SAY vote GORDON (after you look into it yourself since I am by no means always right). I think we should vote GORDON here in Roger's Park for the alderman, which is the citizen's first line of defense in the political system here. Look into gordon and moore yourself, please... but there is a fishy 500,000 campaign contribution to Moore's campaign, a contribution from the realtor's who would drive the poor from this neighborhood and ...
You people really need to settle down.... and try to get a peace. Obviously, since the comments from all over the world everywhere else are in praise, you guys really should exaimine yourself....
