By the "An Inconvenient Truth" was seen by people, we were already in a deep crisis, and we just keep finding more excuses to ignore the facts.

To those individuals, small towns and even bigger cities that are making efforts to change their power supply to alternative energy sources, we should all congratulate them, though that is but one step - tiny step. There is so much to do and it all begins with each one of us. Trash to compost, recylcle, repair, reuse, check the product labels of every item you purchase, if you can not pronounce it, than it's probably not good for you.Is the container reusable? Cleaning products? Try vinegar, cheaper, cleaner and much safer, detergents? Try soap - yes plain old soap. GMO = slow death, use greater caution in what you buy and what you eat. WE can run these greedy, mind, body and soul killing companies out of business - stop buying their Crap!

Mr. Lieberman, Chairman of Homeland Security, should have been removed as Chairman years ago.

The people from his home state should have booted him out years ago as well.

Ty, Tom.

Puzzle 5:14 Oh my! Tumeric (which I think is the primary colour here) is not one of my favourite spices. Second try was 4:29 but I still don't care for tumeric!

MoveOn I found myself caught up in the mechanics of the video (singing when they are really not singing) that I had to listen to the video a 2nd time. Reality is the climate is changing predominately because of our wayward ways. And it is up to ALL of us to change, including the dinosaur climate change deniers. One thing for the Republican/Teabaggers, how will they make their precious money if climate change destroys the planet?

NY Times You know, the term 'bipartisan' should carry a numeric qualifier like " all the Republicans plus 40% of the Democrats" or vice versa in order to qualify as bipartisan. This BS of 1 opponents making something bipartisan is just simple bear scat! As to McCain and Graham, maybe they will implode now and start working for the people, and not themselves. There is always hope, but I'm not prepared to hold my breath over this one.

CBS "Congress returns to work in Washington this week with a to-do list worthy of an overworked single mom." Congress and work is an oxymoron! The Republican/Teabaggers don't have a to-do list, they have a to-obstruct list!

Cartoon The UK was awash in Catholic-Protestant conflict for centuries since Henry VIII told the Vatican to take a hike. To say the British Irish problems are about religion is wrong but that seemed to be the point that comes up most often. But if the Irish and Brits can find some common ground in their centuries old dispute, so can the Palestinians and the Israelis.

The hundred dollar question is whether work will get done in the lame duck session or we'll see a punt

Love your cartoon --and your comment: "If England and Ireland, why not Israel and Palestine?" I couldn't agree more!

Thanks, Tom!

Speaking as one who knows anyone Welsh is likely to have a coronary when looking at that map and seeing bits of Wales included in with bits of England heresy!

We need more tolerance everywhere in the world and so we need to stand up and be counted at all times and in all places against the Far Right and its reliance on Jingoism and Chauvinism!

Love the video. I saw "An Inconvenient Truth" the day it came out. My small segment of family who are RWNJs are global warming deniers called it a little film and they had not even seen it. Hard puzzle.

Loved the video as well. Of course after bragging on my
time the other day, I'm back above the 8 minute mark :(.
Ha ha ha.
