Eric Frein was captured today.

Some 7 weeks after he killed a police officer, this armed killer was caught.

All these days we got no commentary about this white cop killer or why white kill cops. No mention of thuggery or entitlement. No mention of how this guy had a death wish, nothing.

No long sermons about white behavior or culture, no "reasoned and logical" questions asking for an explanation.

All this time white conservatives here acted like this didn't even happen.

One white person w...

It's Up to Joe

On November 4th, something amazing is going to happen, and it boggles my mind to contemplate it. On that day, tens of millions of American voters are going to walk into a voting booth and vote for a Republican.

Most of these voters will be ordinary people, not too different from you and me. They’re not billionaires, and they’re not demented, paranoid rage-fiends. They’re average, pragmatic, rational people; hard-working or wis...

Republicans in here spend so much time trying to dictate to democrats about democratic candidates. But lets look at one of theirs.

I've seen many of Pepsi's amazing shots, and I'm not that good...but I'd like to be someday.

Here is a shot I took of a natural rock formation. This was last fall and it was a beautiful day but a storm was moving in, which you can see in the upper right of the sky. I took three identical shots, one slightly underexposed, one overexposed and one correctly exposed and then blended them to create a high dynamic range (HDR) image. 

I'd like to do more with HDR - I've seen some mesmerizing photos - but I'm not there yet.

The town of Ferguson Missouri is 66 percent black. The grand jury consists of 9 whites and 3 blacks. That is a jury that is 75 percent white. Now one must wonder how the prosecutor who arranged this jury could not find 3 more blacks and 3 less whites in order to make the jury 6 blacks and 6 whites.

Why is this?

Are we saying that the prosecutor could not find 3 more blacks in the area who did not have a bias against Wilson, and yet could find  3 additional whites who did not have a bias in favor of Wilson.

Do you load up on candy and answer the door a thousand times at night?

Do you have wee ones to take around the neighborhood - or to a local mall where they can visit shop owners?

Trick-or-treat is much more mild than it was in my childhood days - or perhaps that cold mountain air I grew up in made the children ornery.

At any rate - who has plans for Halloween? 

I will buy a bag of candy and wait - no one will come to my door. At least no one has in all the years we've lived in the country. Back when ...

ATV-5 Georges Lemaître, of the European Space Agency - interesting video

The fifth unmanned supply vehicle of the European Space Agency, launched this year, was named after a Catholic priest, Belgian Monsignor Georges Lemaître, one of the greatest cosmologists in history. This very interesting ESA video explains why, and includes uncommon footage of the Monsignor explaining his idea of the "primeval Atom".

Remember, the only Mass ever celebrated by Msgr. Lemaître, who died in 1966 while president o...
