There are days for sunny morning walks in the garden, where dew-bejeweled roses release their fragrance on the light breeze.
These are not those days. These are days of harsh realities demanding sharp answers. This is now … time for thorns.
Christine Sisto has penned a first-class slam of the Slut Walk, a now-annual performance displaying all the ills of militant feminism. Chief amongst them in my book, is the notion that a female should be able to dress like a hooker, act like a hooker, yet still expect to be treated with the respect one should accord to the Queen of England. When you have distilled your essence down to sheer insanity, how much respect do you deserve? Not much. If you apparently have no respect for yourself, how much should others have for you? Very little.
The Amish are justly famous for their barn-raisings, but now they are going to build a garage for the Stinson family, who returned two kidnapped sisters to their home this month. The Stinson’s garage had burned down while they were on vacation.
Three cheers to the four male students at North Carolina State University who have developed a prototype for a new nail polish line that changes color when it comes into contact with date rape drugs. Let’s all hope that Undercover Colors not only does good, but is well-compensated for its brilliant notion.

Korean photographer, O Chul Kwon, journeyed to Yellowknife, Canada, and shot these stunning images. Mother Nature rewards the prepared as well as the patient.
This October 5th, the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial will open, as a tribute to those disabled by their injuries. Like some service members, I’m not overly fond of the name, but it serves a purpose, especially with the ongoing failures of the Veterans Administration. If I ever lose my mind and visit the District of Columbia again, I will definitely see this.
