Many times have I discussed the possibility that we live in a world that is less than sane. Or that I am insane and hence the world merely appears crazy to me. But as time marches on and events unfold, the evidence mounts in favor of yet another premise.

Does anyone drink the stuff anymore? You know, the stuff that comes out when you turn on the faucet, the stuff we think of as water.
I wouldn't drink it. I don't. I remember my high school chemistry class. I didn't get a very good grade but a few things got through the thick

Look up religion in any reference book and you are likely to find most definitions begin with words similar to "a system of thought, feeling and action shared by a group who also share a common object of devotion".

Throughout the year I write about many things. And I get a lot of mail. When you express opinions on a variety of subjects, there are always those willing and eager to share their own thoughts. I also get lots of questions.

Did you hear the news? The omni-present "they" have discovered there are two, or perhaps three, more planets in our solar system. Maybe more! Not the current number of nine planets, as previously thought.
Yet there are "officially" still only nine planets in "our" solar system.
Any sane person might ask why we aren't

President Bush may not know how to say nuclear, but he likes the way it sounds. He sees it as a plentiful source of alternative energy. You know, like wind and solar. In typical Bush fashion, he told us so in a recent sound bite on TV.
Bush expressed shock and awe over the

Greetings fellow citizens of Earth. Or should I say "inhabitants"? Perhaps the time has not yet come when we can claim citizenship of the entire world on which we live. Instead, we are required to pledge allegiance only to a single smallish geographic region.
