Soup: Assorted Notes on Chapter Three, Part One

Soup: Assorted Notes on Chapter Three, Part One

First of all, Fleming comes on BBC America.  It’s a great show.  Just started, so catch it on Wednesday nights (caught the re-run of Episode One), or anytime at the website.  I’ve always been mesmerized by Bond flicks, so if you’re a fellow fan, Fleming certainly won’t let you down.  […]

Zimmerman Riots of 2013

Zimmerman Riots of 2013

I haven’t kept up play-by-play with the Zimmerman trial, but it appears that the case against him is not as strong as the media has suggested (as if it ever was).  BonnieGadsden (among others) posted the other day about the potential for race riots and compared the potential to the […]

Reflections on the Past Month

Reflections on the Past Month

Sorry for the lull in posting.  I got back from Bonnaroo yesterday, just in time for a long nap.  Paul McCartney was by far the best performance of the festival.  Four days of music and being surrounded by drugs and hippies can do a lot to a soul: I didn’t […]
