random thoughts, and Voting and Women

August 21, 2012


What, if anything, would change by people being able to see the billions of stars above our heads each night? What, if anything, would change if people got out in nature more? How am I going to critique the suffragist movement, while still giving credit where credit is due, without sounding like a total ass? […]

the resurrection… of my blog

July 25, 2012
