Tonight is the August full moon. Groups of coyotes have been howling loudly the last few nights.

For what it's worth .. time right now is » 2:20 PM, here on the left coast. And this page is live.

Timestamp 2:20 PM for Saturday, 20 June 2020, San Diego time, summer solstice

Today is the summer solstice. The word solstice means 'sun stopping.'

This is the exact moment when the sun appears to reach its northerly-most point of 'travel.'

World map clearly identifies Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn

( It's really just a cool illusion .. because you and I here on planet earth, we are actually the ones doing the traveling. )

I am talking about the point-of-travel where the sun arrives directly over southern Baja California.

This is the point where it comes closest to those of us living here to the north  ..

Looking along the line of the Tropic of Cancer at the monument marker in southern Baja California

.. and then appears to turn around and head back south .. to the distant land of Capricorns .. that time is » 2:43 PM. So we got another 23 mins or so.

Time right now » 11:51 pm Pacific Daylight .. and this page is live.

Time stamp 11:51 pm Pacific Daylight (13 June 2020) and this page is live.

I have not yet written anything here .. but I will be very shortly.

"What am I planning to write in this entry?" you ask? .. here in this page with such an inviting title?

I am sure that you will not be able to handle it.

It probably matters to nobody but me .. but the HTML for this page was posted live at 11:58 PM on 1 June 2020 (Pacific daylight).

Time-n-date stamp 11:58 PM on 1 June 2020 (PDT)

My previous entry was posted on 19 Mar 2020. It is titled » Extreme Levels of Inequality Exert Unsustainable Levels of Stress Upon the Very Fabric of Society.

As coincidence would have it, this is the same day that the governor of California, Gavin Newsom, issued an order to shutdown the state in response to the CoVid-19 pandemic .. the first such state to do so.

It probably means nothing to anybody but me .. but the time right now is » 8:37 pm PDT here on the Left coast .. and this page is » live.

Timestamp taken when current page posted live: 8:37 pm Thursday (19 March 2020)

I have not yet written anything here .. but the HTML is ready to receive whatever words and bits I might happen to feel like sending its way.

I do not know exactly what kinds of things I will be addressing here today .. but I have a pretty good idea. (Many things. Some gnarly, some not. This could go anywhere.)

I am actually curious myself .. to see what kinds of things are coming .. after all this time has passed without the posting of any published writing. Very unlike me.

» Have Not Written Anything Since November

These words you are reading here now .. these are pretty much the only words I have written since November, in an entry titled » You are the Funnest Thing to Play With (5 Nov 2019).

Ariana's Vogue Cover Video Performance (9 July 2019)

I can feel that the writing gears are a little rusty. I should go get my oil can and apply some nuclear-grade lubricant to the writing machinery.

This page originated » here .. in an entry titled » A Strikingly Ignorant Thing to Say (1 May 2018).

Speaking of black people who say strikingly ignorant things .. check out Candace Owens here.

RMU takes Candace Owens to school for being wildly uniformed and saying strikingly ignorant things (10 April 2019)

The all-black, well-educated panel here at Roland Martin Unfiltered (RMU) addresses Candace's comments.

Her comments make me feel sad for the black man. As if they dont already have enough obstacles to overcome .. without one of their own turning against them.

This is yet another reason why justice in America continues to come out perverted for the weak and the poor and the helpless .. despite some 50 or 60 women coming forward.

Justice in America is supposed to be blind .. but it's not. Sadly, justice in America is for sale .. to the highest bidder.

» Why Would Alan Dershowitz Ever Contemplate the Notion that Statutory Rape is an Outdated Concept?

Especially after Dershowitz publicly argued that statutory rape is an "outdated concept" (LA Times, 7 May 1997).

Alan Dershowitz argues that statutory rape is an outdated concept (LA Times, 7 May 1997)

Now there's an eyebrow-raising title if ever I saw one. Why would he ever do something like that?

Have you ever heard someone argue that statutory rape was an outdated concept? I certainly havent.

I wonder if Shaun has any idea why Alan might argue such a thing.

Shaun Attwood reads statement of Virginia Roberts Giuffre saying that she had sexual intercourse with Dershowitz (as a minor) at least six times (7 Sept 2019)

When did it become outdated, Alan? What year pray tell?

Whatever precipitated such an idea? Does David Boies share your startling opinion?

It is off-topic here, but speaking of Marianne Williamson ..

Presidential candidate Marianne Williamson says we need a moral awakening (31 Jam 2019)

.. the ladies of The View treated Alan Dershowitz ...

Dershowitz and Epstein at Harvard in 2004.

.. who happens to be a personal friend of, and enthusiastic advocate for, convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein ..

Shaun Attwood reads aloud the statement of Virginia Roberts Giuffre saying that Dershowitz hung out with Epstein frequently (7 Sept 2019)

.. better than they treated Marianne Williamson.

Much better.

Speaking of stepping away from groups of people who are known to embrace racist sentiments .. check out this Vice News interview with Joe Walsh (57).

Former Tea Party congressman Joe Walsh tells Vice News that the Republican party is not a racist bigoted cruel party (30 Aug 2019).

This is one of the most fascinating political interviews I have ever seen .. for a number of reasons.

Which is why I am mentioning it here .. in this theme where I have already referenced Joe Walsh and some of the things he has said.

He attended the University of Chicago .. so he is no dummy. He is no hick.
