Guns, Heller and Scalia

An intelligent and rational opinion. Please read this


Well its been another week of gun fire across America.  From Buffalo to Texas, Chattanooga to Philadelphia, the right of the citizen to bear arms was on full display. Even the killing of kids is not enough to move the ammo-sexuals; its as if they are rejoicing in the violence. I guess the lives of a couple dozen kids now and then is the price of “freedom.”

How did we get here?  To this situation, this time, this place?

We can thank our Justices – and one in particular.

Antonin Scalia.  We Italians are so proud.

You remember Tony.  He and I grew up only a short subway ride from each other.  Though we both grew up in the Italian American experience, just a few years apart in age, we ended up with completely different world views.

Scalia went on to Georgetown and Harvard Law and was eventually appointed by St…

Stats from WordPress

WordPress just notified me that I’d reached 50,000 views. That seems impossible to me, but it’s a fun number. I am grateful for the wonderful people here in blogland. They’re inspiration keeps me wanting to continue to blog.

I started deleting a few very old posts as a way of cleaning house. I also deleted people who didn’t exist or had multiple follows with the same picture. Back when I began this process I often had no comments or likes. I was blogging as a part of my PTSD recovery. It was helpful to say the least. Now, I blog because I enjoy the interaction with terrific people. I have found bloggers to be nonjudgemental and welcoming.

Thank you for this gift.


Fandango’s Story Starter – #42 – The Unreal Love

For Fandango’s Story Starter #42, which must begin with:

I would have happily married Darlene if it weren’t for her…

I would have married Darlene is it weren’t for her not being alive. Not that she is dead of course. It’s just that she’s never been alive. I am a designer for a mannequin company. Typically, I just work on the “Janes.” They are made for a client’s specific needs. Occasionally I get to design a fashion mannequin.

I worked with a lovely woman named Darlene. You could even say, I had a crush on her. I was too shy to ask her out before she transferred to another department. When the order came in for a particular high quality, fiberglass, unit with an ample shape, I knew right away I would make a Darlene.

I put all my energy into my design. The more I worked on the mannequin, the more I fell in love with her. She listened without judgement. She never rebuffed my attention. She was the perfect mate.

The finished product turned out so wonderfully, I could not give her up. Instead, she resides in the passenger seat of my car. This allows me to drive in the carpool lane and discuss the trails and tribulations of my day. The long commute allows me to keep her close at heart.
