03/27/22 – Putin’s Invasion Continues

CURRENT EVENTS

The Invasion Continues

It has been over a month now since Putin invaded the Ukraine.

When will the Russian people say enough?

I encourage everyone to donate to the Ukrainian cause, but please check out the organization before you make your donation. I feel it is criminal, but there are people taking advantage of your desire to help the Ukrainian people in their fight for freedom.

BOOK OF THE WEEK

I first read this book back in 1976, two years after it came out in 1974. He was concerned about the state of communications in 1974. Well, from my limited vantage point, things have become far worse.

If you are curious about how things once were, you may want to check this book out. It contains ideas such as this, again written in 1974:

 It may be that we have entered a time when some groups would do better to ignore each other than to communicate with each other.

Not communicating saves energy; it keeps people from worrying about things they cannot do anything about; and it eliminates an enormous amount of useless talk.

So, are you interested in this book?

Strictly Speaking

By Edwin Newman

Newman focuses on the sorry state of the English language as a reflection of the sorry state of the society.

If words are devalued, he argues, so are ideas and so are human beings. (Source: Amazon)

MOVIE OF THE WEEK

Ever wonder why someone believes like they do?

Perhaps, this movie may help you understand.

The Motorcycle Diaries (2004)

The Motorcycle Diaries is heartfelt and profound in its rendering of the formative experiences that turn Ernesto “Che” Guerva into a famous revolutionary (Source: Rottentomatoes.com) 

MUSIC OF THE WEEK

And this is one of the reasons why:

Back in the USA (1959)

By Chuck Berry

  JOKE OF THE WEEK

PHYSICAL TRAITS

This makes as much sense as letting genetic males participate in women’s sports.

CHARACTER TRAITS

SOCIAL TRAITS

Dating has become far more complicated,

than when I was young

LEARNING TRAITS

If you are an individual, you should be able to do your own taxes.

If not, you either haven’t tried, or the tax code is too complicated. 

MISCELLANEOUS

However, I must warn you that this book will not change your life, 

only you can do that.

  2. A interesting assortment of musings you’ve got here. I did do my own taxes but this year our situation isn’t complicated. The Russians I know (who are still living there) are being fed a bunch of propaganda … the situation is bound to end badly.
