I love some weird olives, and my wife. But I really love irony. It satisfies some strange place within me. And, I think, last week I saw the most amazing example of irony. Japan's earthquake and tsunami started a nuclear crisis in Japan that may take decades to sort out...if it ever can be. In the same way, it took decades, decades ago, to heal that nation after being the first to experience the atomic bomb: 

What odds would Vegas give that the same nation could be changed forever by both the peaceful and wartime use of nuclear power?

A Walk on the Wild Side

I can't shake this feeling. The shit is coming down faster and faster. It's "the quickening". Japan, the quake, tsunami, nuclear meltdown, the magnetic north pole shift, oil flooding the Gulf...(it's still there...killing). I see myself flowing with the tsunami, banging off buildings and trees and...then down a crack, a Rabbit Hole into nothing.... ("Eternal nothingness is fine if you happen to be dressed for it." -Woody Allen.) I've really tried to be a nice guy. Pretty vanilla really.... Maybe it's time.

I second this nomination.

Laurel Krause is a Facebook friend and I second the nomination of her sister, Allison, for mention and honor this Women's History Month:

JOIN ME in honoring Allison Krause for Women's History Month in 2011. Allison was a nineteen year old coed at Kent State University in 1970. On May 4th, in the national guard occupation of her campus, Allison was shot dead as she protested the Vietnam war. Sandy, Jeff & Bill were also killed and nine students were wounded in this action to suppress dissent against war in America. The incident triggered national outrage in a country already divided over the Vietnam war. In the days that followed more than four million students rose up in dissent across 900 campuses, generating the only nationwide student protest in U.S. history. The Kent State killings have never been thoroughly examined and no person or group has been held accountable for wrongdoing. Here's a poem on Allison published in the Congressional Record December 2010 and at my blog. Please read & learn ~ The Kent State Truth Tribunal was formed by Allison Krause's family to uncover, record and preserve the TRUTH at Kent State 1970 here ~ Watch this amazing video on Allison by Walter Theodore Wynn ~
