“Your Brother Created ISIS”

Just a narrow retread.

Just a narrow retread.

New York Times: “Your brother created ISIS,” the young woman told Jeb Bush. And with that, Ivy Ziedrich, a 19-year-old college student, created the kind of confrontational moment here on Wednesday morning that presidential candidates dread.

She had heard Mr. Bush argue, a few moments before, that America’s retreat from the Middle East under President Obama had contributed to the growing power of the Islamic State. She told the former governor that he was wrong, and made the case that blame lay with the decision by the administration of his brother George W. Bush to disband the Iraqi Army.  Read more here:  http://www.nytimes.com/

What Are Friends For?

Shawn Mossow

Shawn Mossow

A few years ago, a 24-year old man from Stockholm, New York wanted to know “what it feels like to be shot.” So his 25-year old equally-intelligent friend, Shawn Mossow, picked up a 22-caliber rifle and shot him in the leg.

Police have not released the volunteer-victim’s name but he’s expected to make a complete recovery. Mossow was charged with reckless endangerment and is being held in the county jail on $10,000 bail.

I’ll bet the combined IQ of these two would not equal that of a can of peas.

It Was The Breast Of Times

Thursday, May 14th, 2015

It makes me sad to think most women in our culture don’t like their own breasts these days.  They think they’re too big, too small, not pointing up, not the same size, sagging, asymmetrical, or have the wrong size nipples.  They think men look at skin flicks and one-hand magazines and compare their breasts to those pictured.

Some men do. You can tell them when they walk by because they’re  hunched over and scraping their knuckles on the sidewalk.  But most men probably don’t think of womens’ breasts as much as women do – and that’s sad if women think about them (and themselves) in a negative way.

There’s a neat site named 007b that shows hundreds of breasts in all shapes and sizes.  There’s also an accompanying story from each woman describing her relationship with her breasts.  It’s basically by women for women but guys can learn a lot here and women can learn they are not alone when they mistakenly think less of their breasts.
