Your "Habemus papam" piece seems to be a blog. What is a blog? How is it different than posting on Hang with friends? Why do you us it instead?

Loren, I have been going through your file and finding some real jewels. The one: 

Loren Miller April of 2005

"after the election of Joseph Ratzinger as Pope Benedict XVI.  "

"Habemus papam;" we have a pope, specifically Joseph "

is GOOD! Jeez, I really like it when you get fired up. OK! I would like to repost it but with your editing for this pope, or your OK vor me to bring it up to date and attribution to you. 

I'd give an eye-tooth to write as powerfully as you.

Well, it seems the note I just sent you didn't go through ... a common event because I fail to push the "Add Comment" button." Damn! 

Well, here goes again and it may be a repeat: 

Good job on getting a response from Sherrod Brown. Now the job is to get it to come "before the Senate".  What will that take? I'll write my senators. Especially with the lousy "austerity" bug going around, a more appropriate source of funding is to stop spending taxpayer money on military ministering for Jesus Christ.

Loren, I just found again your Dec. 25, comment with your recommended film that so outraged me, the officer lectured his troops to be paid missionaries for Jesus Christ. This was my comment to Facebook today:
Our young service men and women are "ripe as black bananas", Oh! So we hire these fine people to go a foreign land, risk life and limb, come home in a box, or crippled physically and mentally and for what purpose?

"It's great to be a government paid missionary for Jesus Christ!" Is that what their purpose is? Why did the group not stand up and walk out after hearing these first few words. Who are these people? Zombies? Ignorant? Gullible? Weak? Helpless? Sheep to be led into slaughter without even a beep?

I feel sick to my stomach.

Regarding "keeping up with the Pope", I see your point. If I had any Catholic friends, I might show more interest.

Hello Loren!

Cat hug for you!

Hope you have a wonderful day.

Don't get me wrong--I don't totally ignore or repress the subject of religion (or atheism). I just choose my battles. "Proact" sounds legit!

I'm pretty sure I don't have seasonal disorder. After all, I spend a large portion of my time of day in the basement! That could contribute to my problem, now that I think about it!

Loren, No I don't have a TV and I appreciate any thing you can offer to let me see Aaron Sorkin's work. Thanks.

Actually what I have is a pair of the 808s from the mid 1980s... I saw them used and almost tore my pants trying to get my wallet out quickly.  I'm on a bit more of a budget than you are, so I am driving them with NAD power amps, bridged; works out to 330 watts per channel.  I have some lesser B&W model for the other channels in surround sound, but of course that's irrelevant to music.

About that time I did audition the KEFs and they seemed harsh.  I would hope that they have improved since then.

Loren, fair observation. The solution rightfully comes out of conversation that includes accurate information and clear goals for each. 

At 2:40pm on January 13, 2013, Joan Denoo said…

Loren, I agree 100%!

Thumbs up (to your JW visitor comment).

I rather doubt that the same individuals will return, but undoubtedly those wackos will visit my door again. I don't really mind--I get so few visitors!

I had to google "boojums". There were several different descriptions. I took the N.Carolina one.

You never know about a Bigfoot coming around. Every once in awhile, there's a "sighting" of some unusual animal--cougar, wolf, even a bear (30 mi from me). Then, "it" disappears.

Thanks for the comment. I know Heinlein was prolific in his writings but I haven't read any of his works. Is there one in particular you would recommend as a start?

Admittedly, Obama said all the "right" things to the vast majority of his audience. It's a given. If "the love of god", etc., was mentioned at Hichens or Carl Sagen's funeral, I'm guessing the secular community would have been outraged.  I'm just baffled by the irrationality of rationalities. Crazy.

Read your bio. Sorry you're out of work. It's not all bad if one can afford it! I listen to classical music all the time--Baroque my fave. And traditional jazz--Brubeck, big bands, piano. Some rock. I'll eventually get around to reading more posts.

Loren, I am really aware of your style because the things you write often jolt me, and you change styles in ways that read as spontaneous and genuine. I like that about you. Sometime your humor catches me off guard, or whatever style. And, whatever you do, don't change. Your naturalness feels like you read and understand what I need to read.
