Editor’s note: As this is written, (Edited, really) I’m preparing to go to bed. I have to leave at 3am for Southern PA from my western NY home, to make a 10am delivery. As such I really don’t have a bunch of time to write a new thought for this thanksgiving day. Fortunately, I have […]

A pro-life surge? Could be apparent republican congressional surge wash out baby killing democrats from Congress?  One can only hope. Politico runs a story about potential set back to women, but Jill Stanek has the real story: While conservatives are already celebrating the “Year of the Republican Woman,” thanks to a record number of GOP […]

t was nearly the end of the day, today , when I finally realized that I had not written anything in terms of a comment on the day. Usually I tend to take the attitude that if I don’t have anything to say on a subject I won’t say anything at all.  Or perhaps, I […]

Earth to WaPo, come in please. Tim Talley, Associated Press. “Clinic: New Okla. abortion law hard on patients.”    While Oklahoma abortion law may, or may not, be hard on patients, actually mothers, it is even harder on babies.  It kills them.  Thought that you would like to know.

Mary Mitchell, Sun-Times(Chicago) That is why I find the billboard campaign that targets black women with a frightening anti-abortion message disturbing. The ad, which has gone up across Atlanta, features a beautiful black baby and the words: Black Children Are An Endangered Species. Honestly, black women can’t catch a break. Sadly neither can their children.  […]

Bye-Bayh, Fox News: Indiana Sen. Evan Bayh will not seek re-election this November, an unexpected decision that hands Republicans an opportunity for a pick-up in a year when Democrats are already defending several open Senate seats. And Barbara, Rich Vail, Vail Spot: I’ve just heard from an impeccable source that Barbara Mikulski, the Democratic Senator […]

It has been said that writing down one’s thoughts and expecting others to read them is one of the most narcissistic acts possible. By JonesToTheGrindstone.com My family and best friends tell me that I am a talented writer and that one day I will be famous (!). Even though journalistic employment is in lean times […]

Editor’s note: Originally posted on Christmas Eve, 2004. This is a time of year when I don’t envy the position of members of the cloth. Such men and women find themselves in the position of having to write a sermon on essentially the same message every year while making that message sound fresh. It’s not […]

There is no moral imperative driving this message, tonight — no calls for a life of self sacrifice, no direct calls for intensive reflection this night, not even a real punch line of the story.  I will let you decide if these thoughts call for that. Tonight, I’m thinking back…. decades gone by, in fact. […]

By Karen Jones, JonesToTheGrindstone.com I am building a catalog of tools and equipment to better ease us through our days—as we live amongst those who just don’t “get” us, want to “get” us, or even notice us as needing to be “gotten”. On top of the list of regular disturbances to be eased is sifting […]

By Karen Jones As I sit on Bus 77 that cruises up and down Massachusetts Ave., I look down at all the cars on the street. The bus is much taller than the privately owned cars; so, I sit up in my crow’s nest spying on people. I ride public transportation almost every day because […]

Eric, did you notice that while we were napping a couple of rednecks sneaked  into the state?   And boy does the National Republican Congressional Committee(NRCC) have grits all over their faces. The NRCC spent $900,00 in an attempt to install RINO Dede Scozzafava in Congress.    The opposition  consisted of Tea Party conservatives, and redneck bloggers. […]

Curious, from Fox News: A well-known anti-abortion activist was shot multiple times and killed Friday morning in front of a Michigan high school, and another man was shot and killed just miles away in what police are investigating as related incidents. Owosso police chief Michael Compeau said Jim Pouillon, 63, was outside the school Friday […]
