My and Dora’s Song

Wednesday’s debate may be a good thing.


Mitt’s Done — The Rest is Just Process

Given the release of the video of Mitt’s fundraiser — it’s all here — and all of the commentary I have read today and this evening — this quote better expresses my view than I could myself:

The revelations in this video come to me as a genuine shock. I have never hated Romney. I presumed his ideological makeover since he set out to run for president was largely phony, even if he was now committed to carry through with it, and to whatever extent he’d come to believe his own lines, he was oblivious or naïve about the damage he would inflict upon the poor, sick and vulnerable.  It seems unavoidable now to conclude that Romney’s embrace of Paul Ryanism is born of actual contempt for the looters and moochers, a class war on behalf of his own class.


A New Start

I have mostly kept this blog hidden from all but my closest friends.  Some people have found me through links, but mostly it’s just a little blog for me and a few other people.

I’m hard to find for most of my students and that is how I have wanted it to be.

I’ve changed my mind.

I will blog more often and tell more of my students about it.

Things have changed with Facebook et al.

I don’t care for that platform, nor do I care for that twitter thing.

It’s the fall and there are new things beginning — as well as things ending.

I will get better about posting — starting now.

When It’s Just Murphy and Me and Tammy if She Makes It

We will move north.

While I really liked Denver, I couldn’t sleep there.  I liked Cambridge better.  I don’t even have to stay in the US.  I think Murphy and Tammy and I could make a go of it in the great white north.  Tammy is a bear and Murphy is an all weather pup.  I can survive anything.

I’m pretty sure I could find a job.
