The author promised buses-for-everybody from Manhattan to DC on Saturday morning, October 30th, leaving from 560 Broadway---that sweet-spot between the Puck Building and Old St.Patrick's in SoHo.
She was pretty clear that the ride was free if you're going to Jon Stewart's rally. Details are still primordial, as seen on the Huffington Post sign-up page here.
Sometimes that opportunity means extending a helping hand to those who posess special knowledge or fluency in the symbols of a cultural system that would add to the alphabet soup of college.
Universities are first and foremost libraries, where books contain all sorts of symbols. Students come with different skills for both reading and writing these symbol-holding books. In study, they learn to read and write, having started-out with unique clues.
The company employees at least two salespeople that the SEC had sued for scamming a hundred elderly people out of more than one million dollars. The case was settled in the 1990s, all the money was returned to the victims, but currently Goldline employs these same salespeople to handle some of their biggest clients and to train other salesmen for the future.
Executive Vice President Scott Carter defended the company against Weiner's claim that Goldline uses scare-tactics to encourage buyers. Glenn Beck participates in promoting the idea that purchasing vastly over-priced antique coins is the best way to ensure the government will not confiscate gold investments as was done in 1933.
President O'Bama said it best when he said "is féidir linn," "yes we can," at a Saint Patrick's Day reception last year in the White House.
More and more these days, Irish Gaelic is returning to Irish American life at functions and in art, as perceptions of what makes something Irish shift towards more detail and care. In multi-cultural America, the old Irish American assimilation model is giving way and making it possible for Irish Americans to rediscover what they were once told to give-up in the past.
I had written quite generally about theory-heads always tying-in their specialty with everything else. You can read my wanky piece here.
masturbation was "in the air" that news cycle. So was the Delaware race where Christine O'Donnell beat the much more ethical candidate--Mike Castle--with slanderous lies. Rachel Maddow responded when news came live on-air of the defeat, and with it showed a clip of Christine O'Donnell from many years ago. In it, O'Donnell talks like a goodie-two-shoes not much older than 20.
The porn that gets social science academics 'off,' is race. If there were a moratorium on race-talk in America for a month, academics and TV pundits would just stare at the camera like sex-starved prostitutes.
Newt Gingrich is both academic and politician. This week, his tactic against Barack Obama is to amplify the Forbes essay that professor Dinesh D’Souza wrote while wearing Kenya-goggles. The piece is called “How Obama Thinks," and it is just another academic fantasy about the inner psychology of a distant public figure.
The New York Times has usually been exemplary in memorializing the people killed on that day nine years ago.
In this specific piece's eleven paragraphs, however, the reader is told not to "wallow" and that the right way to remember 9/11 is to think about the memorial, the transportation hub and the overall architectural boon of urban life that will come out of the ashes.
"I have tried to turn this into something other than hatred." - Patricia Quigley
Two soccer moms teach us how to respond to 9/11 without hatred, in a documentary by film-maker Beth Murphy, called Beyond Belief that tells the story of their engagement with other widows half-way around the world.
It was released two years ago, and has haunted talk of escalating the Afghan war ever since. President Obama, however, has remained committed to the war's shifty and body-piling objectives.
The choice of Mitchell means Irish people are going to feel that the Middle East Peace Process is somehow their business too. [Irish Americans already feel that way, because of the American tax waterfall that pours into Israel each year.]
With the Irish involved on the outside looking-in, you'll see more Flotillas teeming with angry Irish mothers demanding medicine for the Palestinians.
