  • Goodwill is sick and tired of that green vase!
  • A Stop at Willoughby. Spoiler Alert!
  • The killin’ part (a saying from the other LadyG!)
  • Have pride
  • NOTE: The conversation takes a hard left on education and equity
  • Worker bees and mules
  • Once again, there’s something off about “the dream”

AFC: Waiting on The Dream

Why Waiting for “the best circumstances” is a bad idea

The Time Tunnel (Ron’s Blog)

Tune In next Friday for the next edition of AFC: “Waiting for That Ship To Come In

The Time Is Nigh!

Last night I dreamed of a city where man practiced brotherhood;

Where all men treated each other right, by doing that which is good;

Where peace, justice, and love like a river did flow.

And smiles, happiness and joy, on every face did show.

Alas, I awoke from my slumber to find there was still misery and strife.

So, I cried aloud to my Watchman and asked, what is the hour of the night?

Clearly, we can no longer rely on “the Watchman!”

This is not the time to fall back asleep or indulge in flights of fancy about some prior or coming age…

The time for awakening is nigh…


WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


There’s something happening here

What it is ain’t exactly clear

Stop, hey, what’s that sound

Everybody look what’s going down

Stop, now, what’s that sound

Everybody look what’s going down

Stop, children, what’s that sound

Everybody look what’s going down
