Wow, Now dAts a MYTH. Supportive Parents. So Miniscule, as to be-NO SUCH THING.

With apologies to my sainted parents, may they rest in peace, I actually agree with you. I would not know how to operationally define the word "supportive" in the context of parenting.

I think that most parents try to do the very best they can for their children, but it generally takes more than that to win $100.

Oh my! I did not think this video would spark the controversy that it has.

Sirius, I understand your point and I truly hope that these young people gave written consent to their participation in this social experiment and written consent for it to be posted to social media. Thank you for your thoughtful feedback.

jmercer, thank you also for your thoughtful feedback, but please don't be "done."

The author of the article you posted came across, at least to me, as someone who was possibly "done". The author was arguing that choices, whether yours or your parents, "matter". Yes, of course choices "matter". But to the author of that article I say: if one focuses primarily on choice-making, one is at risk of missing or dismissing social inequities that stack the odds for and against any one of us making choices - good ones or bad ones.

Speaking only for myself of course, I try to guard against hyper-focusing on choice-making, especially in the absence of understanding the social factors that drive choice making. I fear that hyper-focusing on choice-making could potentially give me an excuse for being "done" with an individual... or far worse, an excuse for being "done" with a cultural group.

I never-ever-ever-ever-ever want to be "done".

It's the time of year when they are burying food for the winter. The little buggers are digging up all our flower boxes and beds on the patio. Last year I made the mistake of buying squirrel food. All they did was dig holes and bury it. Not putting any out this year, unless a foot of snow.


LOL! Our California squirrels are too lazy to dig holes. I pulled out some spent rhubarb leaves the other day and found a squirrel cache of peanuts right underneath one of the leaves. No digging involved - just push the peanuts under a big leaf.

Ang, the offer to help with the garage is still open!

On an other matter, I like to pay it forward. After WW2 my family send care packets to Poland. I would like to help with regards to a family in or around Arecibo. Can you or Eric put me in touch with someone? Flat rate shipping via USPS makes this a great deal.



Hi Uli,

What a kind offer! The best way to help, however, it to make a donation to the Red Cross and earmark it for Puerto Rico relief.

Thanks!

I believe the line that offended you was:

"...I guarantee some of these black dudes would smoke all of you."

I do not find that comment, in context of this $100 race, to be offensive. Use of the word "some" vs use of the word "all" keeps it from being a racist comment, in my opinion.

I listened to the words again and did not hear the particular line you quoted, so perhaps it was in another version of this video, perhaps my ears are aging, or perhaps there has simply been a misunderstanding.

If you have not yet seen this video, I think it is well worth watching and I think it deserves a wide audience.

There is some religious commentary at the end of the video, but of course one does not need to practice religion in order to understand and work for social justice.

I love those.


If we say that we have no candy sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, the Candy God is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Go in peace child. Your candy sins are absolved.

The Russell Stover holiday themed things you now find pretty much all year. ... For Halloween they're pumpkins. ...


And one went out into the field to gather herbs, and found a wild vine, and gathered thereof wild gourds his lap full, and came and shred them into the pot of pottage: for they knew them not.

Rejoice in the Candy God's blessings, for your candy sins are no more.
