King Portrays Hurricane Katrina Victims As Helpless, Reliant On Handouts

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) Thursday smeared the victims of Hurricane Katrina as helpless and reliant on handouts as compared to the hardiness and self-dependence of his own constituency. “Here’s what FEMA tells me: ‘We go to a place like New Orleans and everybody’s looking around saying, who’s gonna help me, who’s gonna help me?’” King said at a town hall in Charter Oak, Iowa. “They’re just always gratified when they come and see Iowans take care of each other, so that’s a point of pride that spr...

Successful Aging: I retired and realized I have too few friends and too much stuff

Q. I recently retired for the second time as a health-care business owner. Here is what is hitting me: Many friends have become ill, some have passed away, and neighbors are moving into retirement communities or areas close to their children. In wanting to downsize, I am going through papers, photos of vacations and even old boyfriends – so many memories of my past. Add to that my daughter tells me she is not interested in my things, that they are my memories, not hers. I find this all depressin...

Soul Serenade: Danny White, “Can’t Do Nothing Without You”

For every musician who becomes a household name, there are hundreds, probably even thousands who toil in clubs for many years, getting a whiff of success every now and then but never quite climbing that ladder to the top rung. At some point they must realize that they are never going to get there and yet, they toil on, maybe because they love music or maybe because it’s the only thing they know. Danny White was born and raised in New Orleans. After serving in the Army in California he returned t...

Changes in Bread Baking I've seen over 50+ years

Changes in Bread Baking I've seen over 50+ years Submitted by msneuropil on March 20, 2019 - 1:33pm.  The Hole Truth! I grew up in Texas but live in the Pacific NW now. I was raised on home canned foods,hanging beef, and fresh slaughtered pigs, fresh baked baking powder biscuits and cornbread daily, but my family didn't bake yeast breads hardly ever unless it was salt rising (go figure). I of course loved it when visiting someone's Mom or Granny's farm that made yeast

Injuries have hurt Wolves, but awful defense has hurt just as much

Welcome to the Wednesday edition of The Cooler, where the truth cannot be controversial. Let's get to it: *The impact of injuries on this Timberwolves' season is undeniable. Robert Covington hasn't played since late December, a stretch now of 34 games missed. The Wolves went 12-10 when Covington was in the lineup after he had been acquired from the 76ers. They are 15-19 since he last played. Injuries to several point guards at once derailed any momentum the Wolves had a couple months back. Now a...

Slow travel...

Last year, when I drove down to Shawnee, Oklahoma for the EDP class, I did the drive as one long marathon haul. I blew out of Indy in the pre-dawn darkness, with the sun coming up about Terre Haute, and rolled into the Holiday Inn Express parking lot with a bit of glow left on the western horizon.That was only 740 miles, and the run to New Orleans for Tac-Con this year (well, actually Westwego, just on the far side of NOLA) was another hundred miles further than that.I decided that I was about s...

Former churches turned into bars

Historic churches are already some of the most gorgeous structures in the world. Recently, a select few have been turned into something even more beautiful — bars. Don’t worry, it’s not sacrilegious. These churches have been deconsecrated, so they’re simply regular buildings with stunning architectural designs at this point. The conversion is a win-win for both the churches and the bars. Official estimates list the number of church closures at around 4,000 a year, and new tenets are keeping ...

The SBC Will NEVER Fix the Problems in the SBC

We discuss a lot of issues about what has gone wrong in the SBC. When I first started blogging, we were still experiencing minimal growth and we could argue that while we are not exactly in our halcyon days when the SBC was busting at the seams, we were not doing as badly as “those guys.” That bubble has burst. We’ve had nearly a decade of consistently poor statistical reports revealing declines in most of the numbers we care about. We’ve had systemic divisions over soteriological viewpoints and...

Rush to Irrelevancy?

The CD changer in the Zed Drei's trunk crapped out years ago, and the cassette player in the head unit followed it shortly thereafter.There's so much wind noise at highway speeds that getting a new stereo hasn't been high on my priority list, anyway.Therefore I listen to the radio, and that means I just keep it tuned to NPR. It's not a good audio environment for music, so that means talk radio.I suppose I could listen to right-wing talk radio, but I prefer to be lied to polysyllabically.Driving ...

Best doughnuts from around the world

Food isn’t, and never has been, limited by borders or boundaries. The things we eat travel as we do, flying across oceans and into the cultures and diets of their new homes, adapting along the way. But there may be no single food item that’s made its way into every corner of the world quite like the doughnut. Fried dough has been consumed for long enough to be found as fossilized pieces at ancient Native American sites. These days, it’s everywhere in one variation or another. In fact, forms o...
