November Rambling: Legacy of fools, and Facebook rejection

I have a friend who actually is in great pain much of the time. But she doesn’t “look” sick, or injured, and people dismiss her level of discomfort. So this graphic is for her.

Troy, who participates in ABC Wednesday, and has designed the last several logos for the rounds, and his wife Diann, have undergone a terrible family ordeal, which they describe in painful detail. Then Troy explains that injustice runs in the judge’s family.

I could list Amy Barlow Liberatore’s Sharp Little Pencil just about every month. Her poem Interview With Sgt. Davis, Kabul, 2012 addresses what we are fighting for, while Bitter Silence is a more personal reflection.

Ken Levine wrote about Social Network Rejection when two or three people unsubscribe from your Twitter page or someone unfriends you on Facebook. I realize that this is a real issue for some people. It just isn’t for me. I did sign up for some thing that tells me when someone has unfriended me. A couple were people discontinuing Facebook altogether , and the other two were friends of friends I didn’t know personally anyway. I suppose I should care, but I just don’t. Of course, I don’t even go on Twitter anymore unless there is a weather emergency or some other urgent item I feel needs to be posted. The only other things I put there are the automatic posts from my blog. See also this piece.

  1. I love these polyamorous posts of yours, even when I’m NOT linked to, because I find so many interesting things. However, I pay absolutely no attention to who does or does not follow me on Twitter (which I use the most) or who unfriends me on Facebook. Frankly, I just don’t care.

    Gotta go—have lots of links to follow.

  2. Interesting that the republicans still can’t figure out why they lost but I knew they would from the many posts I had on my blog over the months of the primary and into the campaign. I believe I pointed out that there were very few of the populace that they didn’t insult from people of color down to the unemployed and disabled. The other issue was their trying to sell a produce that was well hidden under a tarp. Who in their right mind would buy a used car that way much less a presidential candidate?

    I’d like to give special credit to the folks who waited in line for hours on end just to cast their ballots. They are the true heros in all this.
