"Stop Being Perfect..."

noreply@blogger.com (CoyotePrime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 5 minutes ago
“It’s only after you’ve lost everything that you’re free to do anything. The things you own end up owning you. We are defined by the choices we make. If you wake up at a different time, in a different place, could you wake up as a different person? I say, never be complete. I say, stop being perfect. I say, let’s evolve and let the chips fall where they may…" ~ Chuck Palahniuk, "Fight Club"

Chet Raymo, “Finding It Where You Are”

noreply@blogger.com (CoyotePrime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 7 minutes ago
*“Finding It Where You Are”* by Chet Raymo “Yes, I've been to Walden. Been there several times, in fact. With students. We sat on the earth at the site of the cabin and read from the book. And the wind stirred the pines, and the hickories, and the oaks, and rippled the pond that shone like silver in the early morning sun. And then, to honor the spirit of the man we came to visit, we sat silently, as if on the stoop of his cabin with friends, knowing that any words, even his own, intruded on the haunting beauty of the place itself. Walden Pond Mary Oliver has a poem called "Going To... more »

“Once When We Were Free”

noreply@blogger.com (CoyotePrime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 18 minutes ago
*“Once When We Were Free”* By Jon Rappoport "We’re so much more sensible now. We don’t live our lives as much as we arrange them and organize them. B follows A. D follows C. We take our medicine and our shots because the doctor says so. We’re careful, because accidents happen. We don’t say what’s on our minds a lot of the time, because other people might pass that on, and who knows? We might get into trouble. But once upon a time, when we were young, we were free. We didn’t take any shots and when we got sick we recovered. We were stronger than kids are now. We didn’t ask for much... more »

Kahlil Gibran, "The Prophet- On Laws"

noreply@blogger.com (CoyotePrime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 22 minutes ago
*"The Prophet- On Laws"* "You delight in laying down laws, Yet you delight more in breaking them. Like children playing by the ocean who build sand-towers with constancy and then destroy them with laughter. But while you build your sand-towers the ocean brings more sand to the shore, And when you destroy them the ocean laughs with you. Verily the ocean laughs always with the innocent. But what of those to whom life is not an ocean, and man-made laws are not sandtowers, But to whom life is a rock, and the law a chisel with which they would carve it in their own likeness? What of the crip... more »

Ebola: “Top Scientist Warns This Version Of Ebola Looks Like ‘A Very Different Bug’"

*“Top Scientist Warns This Version Of Ebola * *Looks Like ‘A Very Different Bug’"* by Michael Snyder “Barack Obama and the head of the CDC need to quit saying that we know exactly how Ebola spreads. Because the truth is that there is much about this virus that we simply do not know. For example, a top Ebola scientist that is working in the heart of the outbreak in Liberia says that this version of Ebola looks like it could be "a very different bug" from past versions.

Accepting Money From Lobbyists Is A Form Of Legalistic Bribery— And Everyone Knows It

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 34 minutes ago
This week PolitiFact asked a direct, simple question: Does Mitch McConnell receive more money from lobbyists than any other member of Congress?. It was based an the ascertain by Alison Lundergan Grimes on March 27— and disputed by McConnell operatives— that he does. What she said, precisely, is that McConnell is “the number one recipient of contributions from lobbyists this cycle.” There can be little dispute that he is, but that didn’t stop Team Mitch from disputing it. McConnell took $281,301 from lobbyists this cycle and the second most corrupt man in Congress, John Boehner (R-... more »

The question on the table: What's ahead for the US? Ron Paul took up the question from a geopolitical angle. He told the crowd that the military-security industry had Congress in its pocket.

PEI: Still Lubing up for the Catlick Church

noreply@blogger.com (fern hill) at DAMMIT JANET! - 1 hour ago
It seems the CBC got its hands on a leaked business plan to bring abortion to the "Gentle Island." A leaked business plan for a twice-monthly clinic prepared by Health PEI shows the province could have saved $37,000 a year providing abortions on the Island, rather than paying for them to be performed at the Queen Elizabeth II Health Science Centre in Halifax. In addition, women using the service would also save tens of thousands of dollars. Currently, PEI is the only province that has zip zero nada abortion services and forces women to travel at their own expense. So, while sensi... more »

Don't be so sure that Pope Francis lost this round of squabbling with the bishops

*The pope at the now-concluded Vatican synod on the family.* *by Ken* On Friday I poked around the pushback being felt within and without the special synod of bishops gathered in the Vatican to ponder family issues. The synod seems clearly an initiative of Pope Francis to see where the boys in the hierarchi he inherited are standing on his initiatives to imbue Catholic family values with some measure of humanity. By then the vocal and power-grubbing coterie of scumbag bishops had already begun watering down the draft document circulated on Monday, and the power-grubbers in the hi... more »

Whoever Wins In Mississippi, It Will Be A Victory For The NRA And For Anti-Choice, Anti-Immigrant And Anti-Gay Fanatics

The bitterly divisive Republican Party primary in Kansas has endangered the Republicans’ ability to hold that red, red state’s Senate seat. The Republican Party primary in Mississippi was even more bitter and more divisive. But Thad Cochran, the senile 76 year old incumbent who was first sent to Washington in 1973 (as a congressman) and who has been in the Senate since 1978, is probably going to hold on. He spent almost $6,000,000 in the primary and squeaked by teabagger Chris McDaniel 157,733 to 156,315 in the first round and 194,932 to 187,265 in the runoff. Two weeks from tomo... more »

Continuing on the young-adult fiction theme, it's been about six months since I blathered about my absolute favourite part of my job: teen book club. Our monthly gathering is still going strong, a small but dedicated group of young readers who love books, and love to talk about books. My posters for TBC invite teens to "hang out, eat snacks, talk about books, talk about life," and that pretty much sums up what we do.

the so-called "y.a. debate" rages on, but doesn't a debate have two sides?

In June of this year, *Slate* ran a now-infamous piece called "Against YA," in which Ruth Graham argued that adults shouldn't read young-adult fiction, and should be embarrassed if they do. A flood of posts and essays were written in response; my own response is here. In the short term, as far as I can tell, not a single writer agreed with Graham. Despite this lopsided showing, some headline writer (possibly here) dubbed this "The Great Y.A. Debate," and the name stuck.
