Chicago Nonsense/ Voltaire's Words/ It's NOT THE GUNS STUPID BUT WE WILL KEEP SAYING IT.
There are times, even in these WORST of times that the wonderful City of my youth (YEA all 75 years) reminds me of the dearly EXTINCT Barnum and Bailey Circus. Of course, most of our favorite memories of circuses past (at least for me) were the elephants and the clowns. Elephants can only be seen... Read more »

PATIENCE/ A Virtue worth having/ BUT Decades of Patience?/ Where do we draw the line/ Fighting Murder with Patience
We were always taught at a very early age that PATIENCE was a VIRTUE. Indeed there are times when patience is a noble gesture.
