Reeking in Timor

Did I hear that word again (communist)? The comment/accusation was directed at the Timorese Prime Minister Alkatiri during an Oz ‘newscast’ – certainly puts an interesting slant on the Timor situation! I was reminded of the emerging independence of the Congo and the short life of its charismatic leader, Patrice Lumumba.

The Constitution is Not for Trivia

It seems to be a far right and left wing sport these days to propose amendments to the Constitution of the United States. One group wants an amendment against burning the flag. Another wants an amendment banning the word God, or any reference to religion or prayer on government property. Yet another wants to get on the band wagon to ban marriage between various groups and sexual orientations. And still another wants to constitutionally legislate the reproductive rights of women. If there is anything one dislikes, the way to solve the problem is to pass a Constitutional amendment banning it. That'll teach 'em!

The Motherhood Manifesto

In the deep quiet of a still-dark morning, Renee reaches her arm out from under her thick flowered comforter and across the bed to hit the snooze button on her alarm clock. For a few blessed (and pre-planned) minutes she avoids the wakeful classic rock blaring into her bedroom from her alarm. Renee hits the snooze button exactly three times before finally casting off her covers. She does this each morning, and each morning she sleepily thinks the same thing: "It's too early. I was just at work two seconds ago, and I don't want to go back already."
