The Lyrics From Billys Forest Chapter 294

Garrick is one. He finds great joy in pointing at the black bear statue in my forest. On Christmas Eve I placed a black bear statue on his side of the forest. I didn't want to tell him where to locate it. That's part of the excitement of life. Locating things that others have put on your path and not telling you about it until your heart and eyes find it. The same is true about conversations. Just like the bear in the forest people endlessly say things that go unnoticed. The moment you...


Ira Shapiro Releases The Book The Betayal

The Founding Fathers gave the U.S. Senate many functions, but it had one fundamental responsibility—its raison d’etre: to provide the check against a dangerous president who threatened our democracy. Two hundred and thirty years later, when Donald Trump, a potential authoritarian, finally reached the White House, the Senate should have served as both America’s first and last lines of defense.
