monitoring Chris Matthews

Media Matters has begun a project to help brassy talking head Chris Matthews deal with reality and keep him honest…okay, More honest–it’s called The Matthews Monitor:



Venus and Jupiter hook up and you can watch!

Space Weather News for Jan 31, 2008:
MORNING SKY ALERT: Set your alarm for dawn. On Friday morning, February 1st, Venus and Jupiter converge in the southeastern sky less than 1 degree apart; they will beam through the rosy glow of dawn like a pair of celestial headlights. It’s a spectacular view worth waking up early to see. The February 1st alignment kicks off four mornings of beautiful views as the crescent Moon moves in to join Venus and Jupiter over the weekend. Visit http://spaceweather.com for sky maps and photos.#
<–>Sounds spectacular! but with Jupiter representing Republicans, both planets relating to money and values, and their conjunction occurring NOW when the US Senate is tussling over much-needed additions to the economic stimulus package, I wonder if this hook up of Venus and Jupiter says something about a fortunate outcome.
Neo-conned America could use a fortunate outcome about now–and you’d think that pretty-minded elitist politicians would have enough pesos socked away under their over-stuffed mattresses by now. How about letting the rest of us have a chance at a good night’s sleep?

Princes, Paupers, Pilgrims & Pioneers: Our Predecessors & Me

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
