Travel, Time, and Technology

As I sit writing this entry, in the First Class Cabin of a United flight from Denver to Newark, I am left to wonder at the way the world has changed. I’ve been reading a novel set in some indeterminate period of the past (train travel is still the big and hot thing in this book) and I marvel at the way the world has changed in the past half century.

You Are What You Read

In an attempt to better understand the Neo-Conservative mind, I decided to read the tome that they all seem to hold so dear: “Atlas Shrugged” by Ayn Rand. I am only about a third of the way through it, but can say that it is an interesting view in to the psyche of anyone who holds this book dear.

Bread And Circuses

“Already long ago, from when we sold our vote to no man, the People have abdicated our duties; for the People who once upon a time handed out military command, high civil office, legions — everything, now restrains itself and anxiously hopes for just two things: bread and circuses.”
Satire #10
Juvenal

Since When!?

Listening to the weekend talking heads programs this past weekend, the spokesperson for the "Family Research Council" came out with a statement that sounds wrong - but I have no way of proving or disproving.

Well, Excuse Me!

This classic Steve Martin line was brought to mind recently as I was reading comments to a picture I posted to a cousin’s facebook page. Without wanting to start the controversy all over again here, suffice it to say, the cousin had made a comment that the satirical picture reminded me of and the sentiment of the caption was one that we both appreciated.

Waiting For Spring

This week’s brief sprinkling of snow reminds me that winter – even though it is already spring – is not, necessarily over!

Springtime In The Rockies

Just a quick post today – the weather (as is its wont in this part of the world) has taken a quick dip into winter again – after weeks of springtime, we were treated to a few hours of winter last night and this morning that showed that once you expose denizens of Denver to spring weather they have to be re-trained for the winter.

HOME!

Being from Florida, I am surprised to say it, but you never miss the humidity until you return to it.

Departure

This morning, before heading out to have breakfast with my friend, I did a bit of study on travel alternatives. I have no idea how it will play-out as I write this at the hotel before I leave for the airport, but I know one thing for sure: I will be home tonight!

Greetings From Frost Lake!

Happy Spring, Everyone!

Departure (Almost)

I am about to meet my friend down at the pool bar for a drink. I would have been headed home from the Denver International Airport right about now, but for… Well, I am getting ahead of myself.
