To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.
Ecclesiastes 3:1The clock of life is wound but once and no man has the power
To know just when the hands will stop - on what day, or what hour.
Now is the only time you have, so live it with a will -
Don't wait until tomorrow - the hands may then be still.

What is perceived as "baggage" will be big in this primary. Can Romney get past his support for gay marriage and medical coverage? Can Pawlenty explain his previous support of cap and trade. Will a change of heart be seen as "flip-flopping" or "seeing the light."
On the other hand - if a president whose foreign policy I passionately disagreed with asked me to serve as an ambassador, would it be the right thing to accept?
Lots of interesting questions this time...
I sort of like him - he's not as far to the middle socially as I would like, but he's way better than Santorum. Of course, most anyone is better than Rick.
Article from TIME about him.
OMG! a Dem caught in a sex scandal.
It's very sad that grown men have to resort to using the internet to harass women.
A Republican would just show up at the gal's house and show he's a man.
As a politician and member of congress? Weiner came off as being a little to cocky and I think the rest of his term will show he is impotent as a politician.
And the way he stood so erect at the podium and gave that flaccid speech?
He may not recover from pulling a boner like that.
He's a jerk - and not very attractive, either. An ugly jerk
Schools use BOOKS. It has been pointed out to me previously by one of our forums esteemed armchair historians that American History is'nt correct if it is obtained from BOOKS.
I quote "Isn't it wonderful to be a American and have foreigners tell you what our Politics are all about? Hey, they even know our History...they read a book somewhere."
I must write to Professor Ian Tyrrell about that one.
But no....he's Australian. What would he know about American history ???

When we were taught history in school we were given tests & forced to memorize dates, people, & places. I always thought well the only place I would be using this stuff is maybe on a quiz show like Jeopardy.
The nice thing about historical books, if you find a good author they can put you right there on the spot.
I organize mine in sections...
- World History
- US History
- US Presidents - its own section
- Columnist who also write books - Bill Bryson, Molly Ivins, Mike Royko, etc.
- Women's Biographies/history
- A small fiction section
- Reference books - silly and not
- Business books
What's in your library??
What's in your library?
Terrific question! I have mine in alphabetical order by author. All mixed in together. Books about sports, medicine, history of all kinds, biography, current events, a few fiction. Then there is my stacks of yet-to-be-read. Again, a mixture of all kinds.
As Thomas Jefferson once said, I cannot live without books.
