You’ve found “Touched With Fire,” or simply “Touched” as I’m sometimes known, although most people refer to me as labwriter. I’ve been blogging on Google’s blogspot for over a year now, and I got sick of it not working, so I’m giving WordPress a try. If you want to see my previous blog, go here.
The last time I was politically active was in the spring of 1970 when I was arrested with 300 other people in Washington Park, Denver, Colorado, for protesting the Kent State shootings. I’ve been forced out of “retirement” because of the narcissistic lunatic who has his sites set on making over our country into something I don’t recognize. “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” –Edmund Burke.
Oh, and P.S. I’ve been proud of my country for my entire life, adult and otherwise, and I wasn’t even handed someone else’s seat at Princeton or Harvard.
P.P.S. Unlike Thomas L. Friedman, “brilliant [just ask him], award-winning” NYT’s columnist, who believes the internet is “an open sewer,” I myself am completely over-the-moon about the internet and its creative possibilities.
Touched With Fire: “He who has never felt, momentarily, what madness is has but a mouthful of brains.” —Herman Melville
