Still hanging on ...

At least one of Fort Wayne, Indiana's news stations has declared this to be the city's toughest winter ever, and I'm not going to argue with that because I'm not from really from here, but I can tell you that it was bad enough for me to stay in my crummy hotel room with nothing but crappy cable shows to keep me company for weeks.  There's not a lot I can say about "what they don't tell you" because I've been privy to nothing but some obviously vile propaganda from the usual suspects.

From my estimation, it's obvious why Putin "invaded" the Crimea ... just look at a map.  It's essential for the Russian Navy to be able to control that piece of land, and it's pretty obvious to me that the West fired the first shot in this deadly game of chicken by instigating a largely fascist-led coup in the Ukraine.  I'm no expert on this subject, though, and I really ought to do some on-line research before I offer my opinion over the net.  Rest assured, though, things aren't as they appear.

Anyway, I'm going to post something now just in case I don't get around to it later in the day, I have a lot of catching up to do as far as learning about what's going on in the world.  Basically I just want my family and friends to know I'm okay.

Thanks, Greg and James. I used to live in San Francisco, actually, but I moved here to be closer to my kids. It's been one storm after another this winter, always followed by a deep freeze, and I don't have a car (or a computer, for that matter).
