Getting a Safe Space

John (not his real name) and I were friends in high school. Like many others we lost touch. John went to one university and I went to another. He was smart, very outgoing and there was little question he was someone who would be successful in life.
 
A couple of years ago we held a reunion and John was one who did not come.  Reunions are   a time to renew friendships, find out what people are doing and, of course, inquire as to what happened to those who are not there.

Sorry ..

Having some technical problems. Blog will be posted Monday afternoon

How the House Rules Help the Rulers

I have a friend who likes to gamble. He is a regular casino patron and while he has invited me to go many times, I have always  declined.  I just don’t like the odds.  The games may be legitimate, but they are designed so that the House wins much more than it loses.

My friend mocks me.  He says that is not consistent with my decision to run for city council in 2014.  In his view city elections may be legitimate but the rules are such that the house or the sitting councillor is virtually assured of victory.
