NOTE- This essay was originally published on 24 Nov, 2014 Mandeville, LA - We will all hear a lot about Washington's Thanksgiving proclamation of 1789 and how this holiday has its roots in the Christian tradition. While this is true and not the point of this post it's still worth noting. Let me get to the point.

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – "Here’s the headline, “Schumer: Senate has votes for media shield law.” What do you need a media shield law for?

Mandeville, LA - There has been ample discussion the past 24 hours as there has been since the dawn of the "Religious Right" in the late 1970's over the purported "Faith Based Constitution" and "Christian Nation" that "HE" erected on these shores.

What Dryden said was this, "Great wits are oft to madness near allied"; and that is true. It is the pure promptitude of the intellect that is in peril of a breakdown.
