For whatever reasons there seems to be an effort on the part on many factions of the popular media to present a very black and white picture of the world, as if there were not a vast array of people with an equally vast array of world views.
Shame that, especially in light of how easy it is to use the internet to visit with people of every stripe, from every corner of the world.

Never, ever give a demon an even stake
In any game you're trying to win
There is no point in providing a level playing field
When you're playing the sinner against the sin
Be ruthless, be forceful
Speak with a voice that shakes windows
Grab the rube by the short hairs
Bid second thoughts adios
Remember, you're not in this
For the glory, or money, or pride
You're in this for the satisfaction
That only kicking a devil's ass

Driving along I-25 northbound when suddenly I spotted a Teddy bear bouncing along the road. My eyes quickly darted up along the highway to scan the speeding cars for the origin of said bear. About 30 feet ahead in the lane just to the right of the one I'm in I see a driver in an SUV turning towards the back seat that is occupied by a child safety seat, with, no doubt, a now crying if not outright wailing child in it.
The right turn indicator starts to flash as the SUV merges into the lane to the far right, and then into a lane that leads to the next exit.
There's no way the Teddy bear can be retrieved, but the driver of the SUV, most likely the parent of the former owner of the Teddy bear, is going to have to spend a lot of time calming that former Teddy bear owner down...and googling where the closest place a replacement Teddy bear can be bought.

The Jefferson County Fair & Festival got into full swing this weekend. I've been a resident of this grand & glorious area of Colorado for over twenty years and I'd never paid a visit...until today
Like most every county fair the Jeffco fair & festival has a wide variety of attractions for visitors and participants, from a wide variety of food trucks...
...to a far better than expected Jazz-R&B-Funk-Rock-Blues band
There are a number of talent competitions and challenges on the schedule too, such as:
Arts & Crafts of every stripe
And my favorite, pie eatin'
There are also pony rides and fantastic fun games for the kids...
Many more animals, some of them friendy, some not so much
Even a playground for adults!
Quite a bit to enjoy, and more (you know, like a rodeo and stuff), all for just a $5.00 entrance fee (13 and up - kids 12 and under get in free).
