Robin Williams Death

robinwilliamsbutterfly350I never met Robin Williams, but like millions of others, I loved him, and had I known he was in such pain, I would have purchased a plane ticket, flown to San Francisco, got him to treatment, and when he was well enough, take him somewhere beautiful for a piece of pie- with ice cream on top! His death is a stunning testimony to the devestating power of depression:

That a Master of humor and joy could find nothing to even smile about.

That one of the most imaginative people in the world could not imagine that there might be a way out of the darkness and pain.

That someone so brilliant hurt too much enough to know that there was a solution.

That someone who freely gave so much love to others could feel none for himself, nor feel the love of millions who would have reached out to help him, save him and love him.

That someone who gave others so much hope could find none for himself.

That this funny, imaginative, brilliant, loving, hopeful soul could not find even a thread of a reason to reach for help is a chilling testimony the the dark, destructive power of depression.

My Dear Robin, how we love you, and wish we could have saved you! My love and prayers go out to your family, the millions who love you so dearly, and all those who have also lost loved ones to this terrible predator.

I hope one day we will see you again in that place of peace, joy and love.

 

Frank Underwood – House of Cards

House of Cards’ Frank Underwood was more interesting, mysterious and multidimensional before he became a murderer. Before he killed two people it was possible to imaging that somewhere deep in his dark, power-hungry soul there still smoldered some genuine, residual virtue from an earlier life. But now he’s just a piece-of-crap murdering thug. An interesting…

John McCain Has Gone Rotten

John McCain Has Gone Rotten

Once upon a time, many years ago, we had some respect for Senator John McCain, but he has since deteriorated into a cranky old dottering airbag. He trashes Ambassador Susan Rice, who has no official access to intelligence gathering, for doing nothing more than communicating the incomplete information she was given by the CIA, while…

Bill Maher’s New Rules For Occupy Movement

New Rule: Now that summer is upon us, the Occupy Wall Street movement must think of a more effective form of protest than camping. To be considered a real movement, it has to start moving asses off the streets and into the voting booth. Occupy’s motto is “The only solution is world revolution.” Okay. But,…

Every WordPress site uses a theme, that creates the visual style of the site. And while WordPress comes with a couple of its own default themes, to really…

Congratulations to Alex Wagner, former reporter for the Huffington Post, on her new post at MSNBC, replacing Contessa Brewer in the 12 P.M. slot. The move continues a trend at MSNBC. to promote its contributors, and  give many of them shows of their own. A big improvement over Contessa Brewer, in our opinion. WOS has long been…

Falling Skies – Falling Intelligence

Falling Skies – Falling Intelligence

I have some questions: What happened to all the military forces of the world? Is it just this rag-tag “resistance” fighting the aliens? Where are all the military weapons? Did they wipe out all the nukes? If so, how? These critters are not that hard to kill- all you have to do is punch them…
