Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

Eulogy From Yesterday for Today

Senator Edward "Teddy" Kennedy's eulogy of his brother, Bobby from 1968.

+ Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, 1932-2009 +
+ Sen.Robert F. Kennedy 1925 -1968 +

JKF, RFK, MLK, Malcolm X, and more recently, Paul Wellstone: the deaths (murders?) of every single "inconvenient" leader effectively destroyed any chance the USA had of a normal democratic political system. In no other western nation that I'm aware of did such a series of deaths occur, with the exception of the Irish Nationalist community in Northern Ireland in the period of 1969-1995. Not the kind of company you want to keep.

RIP Teddy.
