Merry Christmas to all!

I take it as a positive sign that the "Christmas wars" of the last few years seem to have deescalated this year. Christmas can have a contemporary, secular meaning as well as the traditional, religious meaning, and there should be no reason for anyone to take offense at sincere wishes for happy holidays, whatever it may be called: Hannukah, Eid, or even Kwanza.

May all men and women of kind and gentle spirits be blessed during this season of joy.

blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
