Tales of Tails
There's torture and there's Real torture! It's rough!
Coincidences abound. The young lady across the room has a Madison Marathon shirt on. I ask her about it and she tells me of running the half marathon. She is a recent graduate of The University of Wisconsin, Madison. So where did she grow up? Ann Arbor, the place of my birth.
A gorgeous way to start the day in my world
Zoey, so Cute!
Two days ago, Zoey and I are walking by the lake along Loyola University's campus. I can see it coming. A student is putting up her rainbow colored hammock for a nice morning in the sun. Zoey shies away from it; too frightening! Other tough ones for her; people (besides me) coming towards us with umbrellas; shopping carts and other carts.
From our roof - a little blown up - but incredible view
A Primer for Today and Tomorrow It is most important that we do all that we can to help depolarize the divide and actively confront the serious threats that we face. INTRODUCTION My world is both very complex, and really simple underneath its layers. I see: powerful elites (primarily wealthy, white, Christian, heterosexual men) using racism, sexism, classism, and homo/lesbian/trans phobias systemically to manipulate and control most other people. an immediate critically important clash between two strongly opposed world views. a serious danger of a right-wing takeover of power which could easily happen as soon as this year. It is not crazy at all (for me) to fear a Fascist State where: My wife being Black could be in danger because she is Black and not invisible, My Black, gender-fluid step-child — could become another “statistic” — in a world where their life expectancy already is only 36, Me being Jewish,
“I’m here to discuss YOUR White Male Privilege …!” White boy – Get Off your A$$ !! Goodbye Toxicity – Let’s Join the Others, Already Working Towards Necessary, Systemic Change I N T R O D U C T I O N This writing focuses upon cis-gendered, upper-middle class white men in the United States (USians) who want real systemic equality . The United States needs (positive) radical systemic change. We recognize the “Joe Bidens” as our leaders. Behind the scenes, the real work has been, and continues to be, done by the others who are not powerful, wealthy white men. Black women (basically) elected Joe Biden. Black women did most of the significant (basic, core) work that resulted in the passage of the Civil Rights laws of the 1960’s. White liberal and radical upper-middle class/wealthy men wield a lot of potential power, far more than others (besides other similarly well-off white men). We, cis-gendered white men frequently “rest on our l
Cristal R Nell JULY 7, 1978 – JULY 24, 2020 RIP Cristal Nell by Joshua Donn July 25 This is the most gut wrenching thing I have ever had to write. Yesterday morning, Cristal Nell died at her home in Seattle, WA. She had just turned 42 years old and leaves behind a 13 year old son and 10 year old daughter, who are currently with their father. This was completely unexpected and is a huge shock to everyone. First, bridge. She was a very talented and intuitive player. I met her at the table in 2011 when she did something rather brilliant against me, and I knew I had to get to know this person. She was an NABC champion, winning the Rockwell Mixed Pairs in 2017 partnering Igor Savchenko. I had some occasions to play with her in regional pair games and she was solid as a rock. Cristal was extremely enthusiastic about bridge, attending almost every NABC and occasional USBF trial events as well. But more importantly, here are some personal details. She was a devote
