I found Morgan Bullock's story inspiring, especially at a time when there's so much drivel about "cultural appropriation".

Oh, yes, I remember.  No one who was alive at the time will ever forget.

Here is how cars get made.

Any Satanists looking for a consecrated host to use in rituals should check whether there are churches in your area that do this.

It is not the responsibility of others to take care of you on the internet.

Aristotle was right.

Trump and his gang must pay a price for their crimes after being removed from power.

The oldest bigotry of all still runs rampant.

Yet another Christian preacher defied pandemic rules, and at least 22 people got infected.

Here is who Edmund Pettus was.  It's past time to re-name that bridge.

The Japanese are still smarter than we are.

I really appreciate the time you take to do this every week. Seriously, it's one of the highlights of my weekend. I return three or four or even five times every week so I can get to all of the links you post.

I was catching up with the medical craziness on my blog last night and went to my stats to see if my friend in Florida was reading and saw this huge spike in numbers. I was mystified until I realized it was your fault!! :-D

Have a good week.

This is another great list and, as usual I can't pick a favorite. Several held me hostage for a good while, so I learned something new. Thank you for visiting my blog the other day. I really appreciate that you took the time to leave the nice comments.

I hope you had a good weekend. Stay Safe, my friend!
