Put a Sock in Informational Refusals?

Now that we’re back in the blogging business, I’m anxious to be able to harvest some visual trademark stories captured on my iPhone over the past 7 months: Are you surprised to see the federal registration symbol marking World’s Softest? After all, the phrase seems to communicate important information about the socks in question, as does the federally-registered slogan: Like Walking on Clouds! Turns out, not only has the sock maker registered World’s Softest Sock for socks, it has registered di...

Are you eating your brain?

I know — Are you eating your brain? — is a strange title…but stick with me here.I’m listening to an audiobook titled e and heard an interesting bit of trivia about a marine animal called the Sea Squirt. What’s interesting about the sea squirt is the following:…almost as soon as it stops moving, its brain is absorbed by its body. Being permanently attached to a home makes the sea squirt’s spinal cord and the neurons that control locomotion superfluous. Once the sea squirt becomes stationary, it...

Giving Thanks: Bach in Nothing By Chance

Seeking refuge from the gloomy, overcast skies that are growing darker as a winter storm crawls across Wisconsin, I turned to my bookshelves in the hope that the title of a tome once read would catch my eye and lift my spirits. As my eyes slid across the books written by Richard Bach, they came to a full stop on Nothing By Chance, A Gypsy Pilot’s Adventures in Modern America. Reading those words instantly recalled his word pictures of barnstorming through the Midwest in his 1929 Detroit-Parks P...

These weren’t just normal people, like that guy you saw but didn’t actually notice when you were on the way to work the other day. These were exceptional people; people who embodied certain admirable but also niche qualities. When she created the person who represented indefatigab...
