Alex Minassian's trial finally took place and, to no-one's surprise, he was convicted.
I wish I had a dollar for every time I've heard Lee Harvey Oswald described as the assassin of JFK. For example, the current Wikipedia article says, "Oswald shot and killed Kennedy on November 22, 1963, from the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository as the President traveled by motorcade through Dealey Plaza … Continue reading Rescuing History | I wish I had a dollar | Lee Harvey Oswald, JFK and the plight of loners
Few people talk about this - the strange interaction you sometimes see between dreams and the real world. To show you what I mean, I'll give you a simple example of my own.

When I was teaching English in Mexico City in 1969, the school put me in charge … Continue reading Rescuing History | I wish I had a dollar | Mexico and the border wall
That question sounds simple and straightforward, but it isn't. Some dreams are meaningful, some aren't. I'm convinced that there are dreams where the mind is just 'doodling' with images and events, with no intention at all. Other dreams hint at meanings, but finding them is harder than solving a Rubic's Cube. Some defy any explanation, … Continue reading Dreams | What do they mean?
