Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

The air here in Newton is noticeably smudgy today: a combination of local pollen and Quebecois smoke. Air knows no borders.

I too am very sad and angry about that Israeli attack. I'd better keep quiet or I'll start ranting.

We woke to smoke here and thought it was the campground across the river.

I mourn for the 9 people killed, 8 Turks and one American. It's the least I can do. I respect your request but it leaves me very very sad. Has our world reached the point were something like this can't be discussed in a civil and rational manor? If that is true and civil discussion is impossible just how can these problems be solved if the talking is left to the the people in power. Maybe that why this keeps happening over and over and over again.
