“If this nation is to be wise as well as strong, if we are to achieve our destiny, then we need more new ideas for more wise men reading more good books in more public libraries. These libraries should be open to all—except the censor. We must know all the facts and hear all the alternatives and listen to all the criticisms. Let us welcome controversial books and controversial authors. For the Bill of Rights is the guardian of our security as well as our liberty.” JFK, 1960

Thank you very much.

Have a good weekend. I’ll see you soon.

by Scott Creighton

Hello all.

Things here at the old website might be a little slow this weekend due to a couple factors.

First: I’m heading over to the dreaded doctor’s office in a little while and recent developments might require further… testing. Oh, I’m fine. Just a little chest pain every now and then and swelling in the old leg. Don’t think the new blood-thinner they have me on is all that it’s cracked up to be (imagine that. It was approved around the same time Obama mandated people carry private insurance and this new drug reduces costs paid by insurance companies considerably). I don’t know what they will do, those good-hearted doctors, but if they put me back on the old medication, I will undoubtedly have to go for a series of tests somewhere. May not be back in til later this evening.

Second: This is Mother’s day weekend and I will be doing something with Mom on Sunday. Maybe I’ll try to fix up her little car a bit or do something for her as she does so much for me all year.

Nesting

by Scott Creighton

Hi folks.

Today I’ll be nesting a bit. I got the replacement system up and running yesterday and was finally able to let the lap-top go back to being a lap-top (poor thing.)

I have to install some programs on it and tweak the settings here and there (it doesn’t seem to want to recognize daylight saving time, but then again, neither do I) but everything seems to be running just fine at this point.

I’ll be in and out and answering a few comments as I go. Looks like it might be a slow news day anyway.

Thank you all for your patience and support during the Crash Crisis of 2015.

I did discover on the laptop that there are some video editing programs that I have been playing with and I will be installing the webcam drivers on this system later today getting that up and running so you guys will have to suffer through some Youtube vids from me pretty soon. I still hate my voice, but I don’t have to listen to them, just record them, so ha ha.

The Photo, the Dream and the Cruel Epiphany – A Confession

by Scott Creighton

We are forever haunted by the indiscretions of history. Be them trivial or monumental, personal or political, they are the coffee stained dusty blueprints of so many of our broken lives occasionally providing us not so subtle reminders of the frailty of the character we desperately cobbled together and wear like a suit of armor hoping no one, least of all ourselves, can see through the chinks.

I saw a picture yesterday, had a dream this morning and a moment of clarity just now.

In a YouTube/Instagram/Facebook/Twitter/internet-connected-to-everything world where you are a “brand” and “brand” is everything, I am at least free enough to confess I do not like the man I have become and I should have, by all rights, loved another more than I did.

If blogs were created so atheists would have a confessional, here is mine.
