November 2011: 10 Days of Amazing Symbolism   5 comments

Symbolism on Steroids: A Series of Rants From Yours Truly.

What a couple of weeks. Across the media spectrum we were witnesses to a broad range of things to occupy our minds and our conversations. Like describing a new batch of movies coming out of Hollywood, there was drama (the NBA negotiations,) comedy (the NBA negotiations,) religion (the Catholic Church,) the macabre (the Debt Super Committee,) mystery (the Republican presidential candidates,) sports (Packers and Niners,) and a remake (Racism from the Presidential Debates.) I may even add to the list before I’m done. What follows over the  next few days is my take on the week (or so) that was or was not, depending on your point of view.

I’ll start the whole thing off in my next blog, with thoughts on the Roman Catholic Church and how it’s learned to march backward. That’s not some random insult. Ask anyone who’s been in the military or in a Broadway show and they’ll tell you just how difficult marching backward really is. Maybe Catholicism, or one Catholic parish, is opting for the good old days, a longing for the sanctity and trappings of the 1950s. The Holy See and a Virginia parish were in the news.

Beyond that, stay tuned as in no particular order I offer my take on why the events of last week that merit a closer look. Until then, keep reading and send me your comments.

Part 1: Religion

Part 2: Sports

Part 3: Racism

Part 4: Debt and Dysfunction

    This is pointless, why am I even reading it and not enjoying verdens beste gulrotkake? I should learn to spend my time better.

  3. One of my all time special quotes seems extremely fitting here “Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day; while failure is simply a few errors in judgment, repeated every day. It is the accumulative weight of our disciplines and our judgments that leads us to either fortune or failure.”–Jim Rohn
