Boy do we like teams! There’s just something about human nature that compels us to pick a side and then just stay there arguing for the merits of that side or not, no matter what. We do that in sports, of course, and why not? What’s the harm? We can cheer when they win and feel disappointed with them when they lose. And, when we turn off the TV, close the app, go to a different web address, turn off the radio or leave the pub we can take the memory and emotion with us as much as we choose and leave the rest behind.

Thousands of people have continued to demonstrate for a third day against the government in cities across Turkey.
The demonstrations are against the Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s authoritarian and “pro-Islamic policies,” which protesters believe will limit their freedom.

The peace movement has grown old and gray, except for an on-again off-again Libertarian touch.
Several hundred people gathered in Love Party May 21, enthusiastically waited for the too many speakers to finish, and then began marching to the art museum, the first leg of the march toward a Noon June 3 rally in Harrisburg. They forgot a bus to follow along to pick up us old folk who have trouble keeping up. The march seems to really think people are going to march all the way instead of people taking turns marching while others are in a car. The only rides being offered are to those who want to come to the June 3 Harrisburg rally.
