Have U Ever Done This?

After a meeting as I was coming out of a hotel and I was looking for my car keys.

They were not in my pockets and a quick search in the meeting room revealed they weren’t there.

Suddenly, I realized I must have left them in the car. My husband has shouted many times at me leaving the keys in the ignition.

But my theory is the ignition is the best place not to lose them, whereas his theory is that the car will be stolen.

Immediately, I rushed to the parking lot. The parking lot was empty. I came to a terrifying conclusion: His theory was right.

I immediately called the police. I gave them my location, car number, description of car, place I’d parked etc. I also confessed that I’d left my keys in the car, and that it must have been stolen.

Then I made the most difficult call of all to my husband, “Honey,” I stammered; I always call him “honey” in times like these. “I left my keys in the car, and it has been stolen.”

There was a period of silence. I thought the call had been dropped, but then I heard his voice: “Idiot”, he shouted, “I dropped you at the hotel !”

Now it was my time to be silent.

Embarrassed, I said, “Well, come and get me.”

He shouted again, “I will, as soon as I convince this policeman I’ve not stolen your car.”

The Hidden Secret Weapon of Iran

Beyond the Cusp

It is well known that Iran is behind the Houthis in Yemen, Hezballah have virtual control over the Baca Valley, South Beirut and the lands south of the Litani River giving Iran control over Lebanon and Iran had taken command of the forces against ISIS in Iraq officially claiming the lands in the southern and eventually central areas of Iraq ceding the northern areas to Kurdish rule allowing the formation of Kurdistan with their accepting that Iran was the Islamic nation which saved them from ISIS and thus being indebted to Iran. Assad will prove victorious winning a Pyrrhic victory allowing him to rule over a shell of a nation. Things will be in such complete ruin that Assad will even need to relocate the capital as Damascus (Arabic: دمشق ‎) will have become uninhabitable. The reason for this sorry situation will be due to Assad having fled the Capital…

Offense Welcome: In Defense of Free Speech on Campus

Banning such events, speakers and displays is not the answer. It is a stance not only intellectually bankrupt, but one that solidifies a dangerous precedent: the intolerance of free speech.

Removing dissent — however morally intended — is intrinsically antithetical to education, especially at a university.

Edith Levy Photography

I wanted to start today by first thanking all of you for taking the time to vote and providing me with feedback on my logo options. Wow…the consensus was overwhelming and the clear preference was the second version which you can now see prominentlyin my header. Now for today’s image we travel to Trastevere…..

Trastevere is located on the west bank of the Tiber river in Rome. I just loved the just little bar located not far from the Basilica of Santa Maria.
