    Yes, how do people stand living in Red states? Not actually getting by on minimum wage is one of the biggest issues in this campaign. Even more so in states that refused the Medicaid expansion and engage in voter suppression and gerrymanders in order to take away rights from workers, LGBTs, minorities, immigrants, women…

    It’s called Attention Deficit with hyperfocus. I could do that, too, as a child. Because I could hyperfocus, I didn’t believe that I could have ADHD for many years. The authorities in our society define it to be a disorder only because we don’t pay attention to THEM when we have more important things to do.

    Then you should check out mizrahi music, Jewish songs in Hebrew to Arab tunes. Et Dodim, from the Song of Songs, is a great favorite.

    Forget the funnies. I break out laughing every time I read about a Republican Presidential candidate desperately trying to tack right and left at the same time.

    You put your Right foot in, you put your Right foot out, you put your Right foot in (your mouth) and shake it all about…

    Very Buddhist, taking all of your merit and tossing it away for the benefit of someone else. We could do with more of it.

    1) White enough to pass, she could only do so if she got away from where she was known to be a slave. Her master was starting to look at her with those eyes her older sister knew so well. Yes, she knew to follow the Drinking Gourd, but how could she find the Underground Railroad? What if she asked the wrong person? Her Massa, bad and mean as he was, wasn’t at all the worst she had heard tell of.

    A house! But could she even get to it, and would she want to? Never mind. Not her choice, now.

    2) With the yellow star torn off her clothing, she didn’t look obviously Jewish. Her parents and brother were going to die in whatever camp they were marching to, through the snow with no winter coats, with their shoes falling apart, and with next to no food. Or more likely they would die before they could even get there. Neither her family nor the guards had noticed her fall down from weakness, but after the stumbling column disappeared through the trees, and she managed to get up, which way should she go?

    A house! But could she even get to it, and would she want to? Never mind. Not her choice, now.

    3+) Actually, I know enough history to go on in this vein all day. Tweak the artwork and keep the girl, and it could be any ancient imperial war (see Euripides, The Trojan Women, for example), or Syria with ISIS or Northern Nigeria with Boko Haram or Cambodia with the Khmer Rouge or North Korea with the Kim Dynasty or Haiti for two centuries and more or a hundred other places over thousands of years.

    The earliest such story that I know of was They, by Robert Heinlein, written in 1941, and reprinted in various collections, including 6 X H and The Unpleasant Profession of Jonathan Hoag. See also Of Men and Monsters, by William Tenn.

    Watch out, kid, or the Glaroon will get you!

    The deniers cannot allow themselves to imagine that warming oceans in the tropics means more evaporation all year round, and it has to come down somewhere, whether as rain or snow or hail or sleet. So, yes, more snow in winter means Global Warming is real. See also the XKCD strip Cold at http://xkcd.com/1321/

    Climate Change is not the correct term. That’s what Frank Luntz told Republicans to call Global Warming.

    I’m a Buddhist priest. Preaching about reality is part of what I do.
