I may chat about my books, what I'm writing or reading, or just general thoughts. You may read posts about my cats or just my crazy life in general. Comments are welcome, if anyone wants to interact with me. Maybe we can share war stories, whether it's writing related or just about life in general.

Some Good News, Crazy News, and Some Cute Pics

Edward Snowden - News Photo

Of course, this good news depends on which side you’re on in this whole affair.  but Snowden gets temporary asylum in Russia today after living for almost five weeks at the Moscow airport.  I’m happy to see that he’s safe, for now at least.  We all know he wont be safe here if he comes back.  He did all of us a big favor by “blowing the whistle” on the NSA.  I know there are two frames of mind on this, with some believing he’s a traitor and should be tried for that charges, but I think he’s a hero and I don’t mind saying so.  I’m sure he knew he as doing a dangerous thing form the get go et he still stuck his neck out there and risked it. 

 I hope they won’t send him back here, but I guess the coming months will tell.  We aren’t privy what goes on behind the scenes.  So that is my two cent on that.

 Here is another story that will leave you wondering and scratching your head.  The headlines: Family visited by cops after googling pressure cookers and backpacks.  Of curse after six men show up to search the house and yard, and ask tons of questions, they leave.  The thing here is each police agency blames the other for the search, and no one will admit to sending anyone to search the house in question.  This is really suspicious and is proof someone is watching everything we do on the internet.  Beware what you’re searching for on there people.  Big Brother is watching you.  I wonder what George Orwell would say about the current world we live in?  You can read the rest of this disturbing story here:

Now, on to some cute animal news, who doesn’t like animal babies?
