un meneo de mi dedo

New Mexico legislator Cathrynn Brown, R-Carlsbad, introduced a bill with admitted "wording problems" that would make it a crime for rape victims to have an abortion. Something about "tampering with evidence."

NSFW NM



When you dissect the difference between what a third grader ought to know and the performance of your class register's poorest performing sub-group, they nomenclaturize.

How about an "achievement gap?" Sure. Why not?

Hooray! Somebody's ass just got covered.

You poor… Read full post »

If you want to watch the coolest videos, don't go to Gawker and say "show me what you got."

'Cause what they got is your number. (Okay, hard-of-hearing Darth Vader was smirkworthy, but not for the duration.)

Visiting with Ghosts (A Photo-Blog)

 
I went for a little drive (okay, a water run) last Thursday and passed through our old stomping ground of Paxton Springs. We lived in its last habitable structure for six years, from 1976 to 1982. You can tell many people called this place home back when the lumber railroad… Read full post »

regaining imperceptibility


my schoolboy knowledge serves me well
wondering where the yellow went
finding cancer in the sky
the tedium we'll circumvent

but surely you will know the deal
shorter, shorter, then it's long
the solstice marks familiar days
but sunrise says there's something wrong

Hey there. A(n) x-mas greeting from the high desert. I hit delete on that Texas crap, so your original warm and fuzzies never fully made it. Sorry. Can one rent a clue?

The Resistance of Memory

From what I've made of what I've read, though that makes me an expert in all of nothing, all across the country, something about this latest (and would we could say "last") mass killing resonates in every state. The red state mindset, the blue state mindset, and the white of innocents… Read full post »

It is so petty, whether one is done here, protesting for a while, or too lazy to give lorianne her props and rejoin one's friends elsewhere (where there's air I'm told) and piss you off this time baby. (Mea maxima culpa.)

Art is the Burnisher (of Your Best Work)

 

I've "accused" some of you savvy readers of being artistic, which I've recently been made aware gives you the creeps.

 

Sorry.

 

I don't know how else we'd interact, but I'm willing to give this "new order" a try.

Jacob Louise Sugarman

 

Perhaps it was when the ed-i-tor started handing out authorizations in the name of fighting SPAM.


Now God-knows-who-all has the master keys.

Perhaps those cuckoo clocks we thought had moved on to torment other comments sections in the known blogiverse came back as hackers?

The authors are listeners. Channelers.
