imagesWell were listening to a little Bob Dylan today and looking back at 2014. The year didn’t start out badly but it ended like shit. What the heck is going on cops shooting unarmed men? Cops being ambushed, racism is back like the early sixties (maybe it never went away). And just at the end of the year a 29 year old mother was shot to death by her 2 year old it was an accident but why does a mother living in a town of 9,000 need to carry a gun into Wal Mart. As you know I’m not anti gun but the proliferation of cop killings and people be shot by cops has me ready to rethink this. There were 3 fatal airline crashes this year, earthquakes, early snow storms, droughts, and now floods. We lost 42 musicians a number of celebrities to many by their own hand. Let’s hope all the bad shit is done for awhile and we can have a peaceful and joyful year in 2015. This is Flounder saying HAPPY NEW YEAR and CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.

indexI got up this morning with Jeff he put on some Bob Dylan and we started looking for good news on the internet you know something other than death and destruction or politics. It was pretty near impossible to find I mean there was a story of a mixed martial artist trying to save a baby Dolphin and some human interest involving young people but not a lot of what I would call good or happy news. Why is when people try to do something good it gets but in such a place that very few people get to read it? If by chance some organization succeeds in defeating big business and save an animal or an area of land there made to look like the enemy rather than a hero. Being a cat I think you humans are doomed if keep thinking like that. I mean the people that protested the war in Viet Nam are only thought of as heroes by a few, the rest think they were misguided kids or worse today they would be labeled a terrorists probably because they dared to disagree with authority. One of these days if I live long enough maybe some TV news cast will do nothing but happy news. Wouldn’t that be something? This is Flounder saying CIAO form Medellin Colombia.
