  1. Thanks for including several from my blog, Jerry.

    I remember telling people that just reading the headlines to my blog would give them a sense of what’s really going on in the world, back when I posted several blog posts a day.


    1. Lo,
      A semi-artistic, novice effort of creativity on my part to contrast the normal silo effect when reading articles against a “big picture” perspective, or simply something different for a change. 🙂 A kind of interesting, hopefully beneficial variation; perhaps a more intensely revealing and thought-evoking, synthesized way of seeing world events today…
