Tavis Smiley:
The bust of Dr. King in the Oval Office is surely whispering to President Obama right now, "It's nonviolence or nonexistence." The U.S. engaged in 3 wars in 3 Muslim countries all at once? HUGE mistake. War is STILL not the answer. This is the problem with prematurely giving the Nobel Peace Prize to a war president. Let's... pray for peace.

Me! By somebody else

I should say, too, that there are a lot of things people consider leisure activities that I don’t bother with, partly because to me they’re not all that interesting. Going to movies in theaters, for example. Any sport that involves a ball. (I’ve discussed, haven’t I, my experience with balls? We repel each other, like magnets. Imagine how difficult that made kickball, in elementary school!) Going sailing, just to go sailing rather than getting anywhere. Going to any sort of gym for exercise. (Why? I’d rather go to a dance class.) Going to a spa. (Why? I’d rather learn to spin wool, or fight with a sword, or just about anything.) And I don’t shop, except when I’m going to an old book store, a thrift store, an antiques market. If I’m going to shop, it’s going to be an adventure. (Malls. Why?) That’s a good rule, actually: don’t do anything unless it’s an adventure. The other stuff: what’s the point? (Unless you like doing it, of course, and then you should. But don’t do things just because you feel as though you ought to.)

"I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it"

Although I cannot stomach the hate this so-called church is spewing, I breathed a sigh of relief when I heard the Supreme Court decision. photo here
