Retired public school teacher. I live in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area of Texas.
I had doubts most of my childhood, but then read Why I'm Not a Christian by Bertrand Russell while in the military and it let me know it was okay to be an atheist.
Christopher Hitchens and Sam Harris are among those I read later. None of them converted me just enlightened me.

I was in high school in Dallas during this time. It was a very cold winter of 63-64 in the U.S. and I don't mean the weather. Just the gloom. It has been written that this gloom persisted until Feb. of 1964 when the Beatles came to th U.S. for the first time and Beatlemania took over.

My goodbye email to Dave, 72. Was I clear? We didn't meet.
Sierra4 comments on Nov 14, 2021:
Just recently I meet a woman online. A few messages and we exchanged phone numbers. A phone call and we met for lunch. It went well and the next time we went for an urban walk and lunch. She said next time she would like to go to Ft. Worth and walk around the downtown area. That was great. The next day was Sunday and she was going to be with family. I texted the following day to set our next date up. Nothing. Profile off on the dating site. I knew there was no reason to text or call as she would not answer. Nothing inappropriate was said or done. Ghosting is so much fun. Anyway, at least you let this guy know the problem you had with him.

Five or six years ago I saw him interviewed when his book, Hillbilly Elegy came out. I read the book and enjoyed it. It reminded me of the kind of people I was raised around in northern Kentucky and southern Ohio. I admired his getting out and serving in the military and then getting a law degree even though I knew he was conservative, he seemed to be a reasonable man. And then…..he decides to run for the Senate and seeks FORMER president trump’s endorsement…..

Sierra4 comments on Oct 11, 2021:
As an ESL elementary teacher I brought my backpack to class. They could speak English, but it was their second language. As I unloaded the pack I identified each item and what it was for. Just an English acquisition exercise. When I pulled out a plastic bag with toilet paper and trowel I was going to skip it, but someone asked. I told them when you are backpacking there are no restrooms. So you dig a hole and………. OH GROSS. MUY MALO
The Beatles….
Sierra4 comments on Oct 11, 2021:
I read this on Sunday. Of course we don't have John around to give his side, but from where I sit John seemed like the type to initiate the break up. He seemed like the been there, done that type of man and that is not a bad thing. The Beatles music evolved, but John may have thought the next step was stepping away from the group. All of this is conjecture of course.
