My Locale Kanto Plain, Japan
About Me The top of the mountain is more an afterthought than a destination for me. Its the trees and creatures, the weather and people along the way that make the walking good. It's why it's always so hard to come back down. And why, with the odor of days imprinted in synthetics, my coming back down is hard for others, too!

Re: "Newtown"
Jeffrey, Very well put. And I think it is just that which is the crux of the whole problem. You can talk and talk until everyone is blue in the face, but unless you take the first step toward do...

Re: Sacrifice

Re: locus
Nobody ripped off anything. Pyramid tents have been around forever, at least since Roman times. And you could just as well "accuse" Rob Bell of having ripped off Oware's original siln...

Re: Sacrifice
I love hearing comments from those outside the US, but it seems like many of them assume that every country is the same and every law or restriction will have the same effect universally. What&#...

Re: Packing heat

Re: Sacrifice
Why does it matter what people outside the US think? Very true. I guess it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks. Then I also guess that it is high time that Americans stop criticizing ...

Re: Sacrifice
It's extreme comments like that that prevent us from ever making progress. Brad, but that's just it. Outside the States, that is not an extreme comment at all; it is self evident. Why no...
