      June the 5th 2013 seemed like such a normal day in America. President Obama had just nominated Susan Rice to an ambassadorship and most of the main stream news was covering either the 45 year anniversary of Robert F.

Lift every voice and sing, till earth and Heaven ring,

Ring with the harmonies of liberty;

    Vince Lombardi once said “Individual commitment to a group effort, that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work”. For those of you who may be unfamiliar with the Stetson wearing, parable dropping Lombardi, he was the coach who lead the Green Bay Packers to the first two Super Bowl victories ever.

          Pope Gregory the First, like 4th century monk Evagrius Ponticus before him, had a particular fixation with the many sins and vices that befall the human species. It is in fact Gregory himself to whom the formally compiled “Seven Deadly Sins” of Christianity are attributed.

    The American president has the unique ability to circumvent the justice system by issuing official pardons to anyone of his choosing. Unlike most executive powers, the authority to grant clemency is unchecked by Congress and cannot be reviewed, blocked or overturned.

2013 Year End Review

2013 powerfist review

   

    2013 was a transformative year in the news. Events happened that will forever alter our collective destinies, some for the better, some for the worse. Though I cannot tell what late breaking stories the future might bring, I do believe a short review is necessary for proper perspective on where we are as we head into 2014.

(Christmas Bells)

I heard the bells on Christmas day

Their old familiar carols play

And mild and sweet the words repeat,

Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!”” cries she

with silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
