Today Shakespeare, tomorrow the Bible.

The Bible teaches us. Indoctrinates us in a sense. DeSantis says the school system shall not be used to “indoctrinate” children.

DeSantis claims he is “God’s protector.” Accordingly, the Bible should be, may be, off limits. 

My concern is now that a Florida school district has stripped some Shakespearean passages nothing may be “sacred.”

DeSantis has openly acknowledged he is Catholic and claims his favorite Bible verse is John 14:6 where Jesus tells his disciples, “I am the way, the truth and the life.” I worry he may adopt Christ’s words for his own and consider himself somewhat Christ like.

There are well educated people out there who have already come forth claiming certain Biblical passages are not right for school children to read.

Nuts one and all!

Ohio did it! It was People against the Politicians yesterday. The people overwhelmingly rejected a GOP backed proposal that would have made it tougher to protect abortion rights.

A Texas woman did “good!” Survived a horrible incident!

Mowing her lawn. She was attacked by a snake and hawk at the same time.

The snake fell from the sky and wrapped itself tightly around Peggy Jones. The snake apparently was the caught prey of a hawk. The hawk swooped down to retrieve the snake. Hacking Peggy’s arm in the process.

Peggy said she was scared big time.

The snake was squeezing her hard at the same time the hawk was clawing at her arm. She called out for Jesus to help her.

The hawk succeeded on its fourth try to recover the snake. Peggy’s arm is healing. The next day, she returned to complete the grass cutting job.

Judge Aileen Cannon described by Bess Levin as “dopey and constitutionally dubious.” One legal expert accused Cannon of showing “ignorance” and “bias” following her recent pro-Trump ruling.

Is a “fair trial” possible? Many question Cannon’s capacity to “judge” the classified documents case.

I am one of them.

She has to go!

Winston Churchill: “There is no such thing as public opinion. There is only published opinion.” Such would apply also today TV talk show and social media commentaries.

Fun time yesterday! Happy hour at The Grand from 4-7. Shared the time with Steve and Cindy Thompson, Christine and Ed. Matt the congenial bartender.

I enjoyed pennes in oil buried under a bed of mussels. Love mussels! Got into them big time here in the Keys. Sort of in memory of my mother. One of her favorite dishes.

Enjoy your day!




  1. Of course Judge Aileen Cannon is “dopey” and “constitutionally dubious” as well as “ignorant” and “biased.” She was a Republican: appointment and that is just what they want!
