Just start governing

It’s easier said than done to just start governing in Egypt. A communications hierarchy is essential. For now, decisions can be made based on how big each activist group is estimated to be. They can each elect a point person. Without knowledge of and access to the means of production, obtaining necessities could be daunting I’m afraid. Getting food I would say is a priority. Not sure if they have it in the countryside. I recently finished “All New Square Foot Gardening” by Mel Bartholemew. Not sure if there’s time in Egypt to employ his techniques. Instead of a book review, for now I’ll just say I recommend it.

Landwehr could mean land wear

On MPR today, Mike Edgerly asked Dayton’s new DNR commissioner Thomas Landwehr if he favors letting companies do their own environmental impact statements. Landwehr answered that it should be ok, as long as the contractor provides the same report to the state that they do to the company. I’m not reassured that he’s reassured.

Gabrielle Giffords

The shooting of U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and many others in Arizona Saturday saddens me. This tragedy involves mental illness and Arizona’s lax firearms laws. I also suspect violent Republican rhetoric as a factor. If you listen to AM950 or MPR or watch MSNBC, you will notice that the rhetoric is not violent. There is a better way. Let’s choose love before hate, peace before war, life before death, in keeping with the KV of Nonviolence.

Ageless Body, Timeless Mind

Book Review: Ageless Body, Timeless Mind by Deepak Chopra

This book says our spirits are beyond time so we can have less stress and live longer. At the smallest levels, there is empty space and we can use it to keep repairing our bodies, maybe indefinitely. Nutrition, exercise, sleep, and meditation all help, as well as creativity, purpose, positivity, and love.

Change U.S. Senate rules

I support changing U.S. Senate rules to end secret holds (anonymous filibusters).
