The Widdershins

Archive for March 25th, 2012

Good Sunday, Widdershins.  This is the time that I generally congratulate us all for wading through another week of cr*p.  In view of the emotions of the Trayvon Wilson situation, I’m not certain that I – either as a mother, a grandmother, a Southerner, an American, or a member of the human race  – ever really waded through it.  I’m kind of stuck on an island of angst in the messy waters of the previous week.  I’m feeling reflective and still somewhat uneasy.  When that happens, the best thing that I can usually do is to dive into a clean pool of music and float off to a better space.  The songs below are some that I find helpful in this instance, and I’d appreciate any suggestions that y’all may have.  Above all, I wish peace and solace to everyone.

(1) Some Day It’s Gonna Make Sense – Michael Learns To Rock

(2) Waiting On The World To Change – John Mayer

(3) Down On The River To Pray – Allison Krauss

(4) The River – Garth Brooks

(5) If Today Was Your Last Day -Nickleback

This is an open thread.  Peace, y’all.


Stop Fast Track and the TPP!

2nd Presidential Debate & Format

Date October 9, 2016
Venue Washington University in St. Louis

Moderator Martha Raddatz of ABC Anderson Cooper of CNN

Format :

The debate will be conducted in a "town meeting" format. The Committee on Presidential Debates (CBD) stipulated that the Gallup Organization will select only uncommitted voters" to attend. The CBD had also originally stipulated that half of the questions were to be posed directly by citizen participants and the other half were to be posed by the moderators "based on topics of broad public interest as reflected in social media and other sources." The committee later revised the rules such that members of the public are able to create or vote for questions to be posed at the debate at Presidential Open Questions, although the moderators will have discretion on whether to accept them.

Under the town meeting format, candidates will have two minutes to respond and there will be an additional minute for the moderator to facilitate further discussion
