I have long heard that the radical adjective is as much a marketing device as anything else. Supposedly, there were competing groups of faeries. One group literally said, we will call our group radical faeries, so we can tell it apart from your group of faeries. Does anyone know any more about this? The R word is a splendid marketing device, and creates some wonderful acronyms. However, if we are going to spend time, and energy, fussing about whether or not something is *radical*, then maybe it is time to retire the R word. ~ If you are drowning in a glass of water, does it matter if it is half empty or half full? ~ @conor64 I am explicitly telling you that your Tweet was libelous, that you should remove it, and that I will at the very least continue drawing attention to your false, defamatory statement, madenwith reckless disregard for facts, until you delete it. You’ll here from me next by email. @JonathanLKrohn Jesus Christ, dude. Maybe you should step away from the computer. Or, indeed, the profession of journalism. ~Stacey Abrams urges Hollywood to ‘#StayAndFight’ in Georgia instead of boycotting over abortion law ~ @MrChurchGuy I guess it makes sense for worship leaders to wear jeans. In the Bible, the musicians at the Temple were all in the tribe of Levi’s. ~ @J_D_Landis A difficult problem facing the non-violent is how to get rid of the violent without resorting to violence. ~ Once, there was a small town. They had a baptist church, and a methodist church. There were not enough people to have two churches. They decided to combine them, and call it the christian church. One old man was not pleased. “I was born a baptist, I was raised a baptist, and you are never going to make a christian out of me.” ~ During a service at an old synagogue in Eastern Europe, when a particular prayer was said, half the congregants stood up and half remained sitting. The half that was seated would yell at those standing to sit down, and the ones standing yelled at the ones sitting to stand up. The new rabbi, learned as he was in the Law and commentaries, didn’t know what to do. His congregation suggested that he consult a 98-year-old man who was one of the original founders of their shul, but now was bedridden in a nursing home. The rabbi hoped the elderly man would be able to tell him what the actual tradition was, so he went to the nursing home with a representative of each faction of the congregation. ~ The one whose followers stood during the prayer asked the old man, “Is the tradition to stand during this prayer?” The old man answered, “No, that is not the tradition.” The one whose followers sat said, “Then the tradition is to sit!” The old man answered, “No, that is not the tradition.” Then the rabbi desperately pleaded to the old man, “But the congregants fight all the time, yelling at each other about whether they should sit or stand!” The old man interrupted, exclaiming, “Ah yes! THAT is the tradition!” ~ I just heard the quote, “be curious not judgmental” I wondered what the context was. According to wikiquotes, #waltwhitman never said that in print @QuoteResearch ~ “O Magnet South” Specimen Days “Ethiopia Saluting the Colors” “The Wound Dresser,” ~ Proverbs 26:17 He that passeth by, and meddleth with strife belonging not to him, is like one that taketh a dog by the ears. ~ pictures today are from The Library of Congress. ~ selah
