Java Zen:Thinking Out Loud Tuesday, 2020.07.07
[W]hen I went on Question Time the other week, a woman in the audience, her
voice quavering with self-righteousness, presented the following argument: since
it was America that supported Osama bin Laden when he was fighting the Russians,
the US armed forces, in response to September 11, should be dropping bombs on
themselves!? And the audience applauded. It is quite an achievement. People of
liberal sympathies, stupefied by relativism, have become the apologists for a
creedal wave that is racist, misogynist, homophobic, imperialist, and genocidal.
To put it another way, they are up the arse of those that want them dead.

Crossroads

I’m in the midst of the consulting gig from hell and just finished my fourth straight week commuting between Denver and New York City. Barely enough time to keep up on personal business, let alone blog. But there has been time to think about where I’m at and where I’m going. As time permits, I’ll post pictures I’ve taken along the way.

An intersection that needs no introduction…

…and perhaps one that does. Grand Central Station…

Pausing to spend time in these spaces, I wonder how many hello’s and goodbyes have happened here? How many hopes and dreams either ended or began at these intersections of human experience?
