The closest super moon in nearly 70 years rose into a night sky filled with smoke from forrest fires giving a dramatic reddish yellow hue to the sacred orb.

Super Moon 2016

The Super Moon has risen! I was concerned earlier that the Forrest fires providing hazy dense smog today would hamper tonight’s photographic marvel. Not so. In fact, the hazy atmosphere has provided a reddish yellow hue to the super moon, a color combination with the added background of the AmSouth Building in downtown Huntsville that reminds me of my High School Alma Mater. This shot is presented in remembrance of Butler High School and it’s iconic green and gold colors.

The absolute optimum is actually early tomorrow morning, but hay, I’m done for the evening. You can still get out there and view this once in a lifetime event.

    Observing Veteran’s Day

    But of course, there are so many who didn’t come home, and so many who come home with enduring injuries, and so the sadness of war remains – victory or not.

    The Solidarity Of Law Enforcement Jihad | Tamir Rice : Nothing But A Gooked Up Piece Of Shit

    Cleveland police officer Timothy Loehmann is no better than any other dirtbag who kills as part of his gang indoctrination. For the wanton murder of innocent 12 year old Tamir Rice – that’s what the death penalty is for.

    Day Late And A Warhead Short – For Now

    Here’s another part of the equation. It has already been my estimation that Trump’s wide open Wall Street policy will result in another economic crash – just like it did because of previous Republican administrations. Well, I’m not an economic expert, and vectors come with a lot of variables, but it seems to me that economic crashes in this country have gotten successively worse with the next one on track to be a 1929 humdinger – or worse.

    Sandy Hook Tipping Point Constitutional Last Straw

    Make no mistake. I am grieved by the loss of the innocent children and adults in the Sandy Hook massacre. Never-the-less, there are many, many complex issues involved other than basic safety and gun control – which are NOT synonymous. The attack on “disturbed” individuals is disturbing since the profile is arbitrary to begin with, […]

    A Straight Eye For The Queer Guy(and binoculars for the colored folks)

    You know, it’s funny, in a queer sort of way. I can remember a good friend of mine from long ago who once chastised me quite roundly for the inappropriate use of the word “queer.” He (only a friend mind you) informed me that words like “gay” and “queer” were good words gone bad when […]

    The Boy Scouts Has Lost It’s Orientation

    At face value, it can’t be overstated, when girls enter the equation, the dynamics change, and the boys that are younger, or less socially adept, or less tough, or less sexy, get lost in the shuffle.
