An excellent article. So, some extremist Christian leaders (pastors) are doing just what some extremist Islamic leaders (imams) do – condemn the LGBT community. I guess condemnation, in relation to the article published in the NYTimes, would be a bit “soft”. Food for thought.
One preacher received a torrent of denunciation when he said, “The tragedy is that more of them didn’t die.”

…adding to my Amazon wish-list. David Brooks, a New York Times op-ed columnist, ties in this book with what we just saw in the Brexit referendum.
The loyalty culture and the flavor of the working-class rebellion.

This is an excellent article comparing toxicity of different drugs. I’d bet money that if I walked up to someone on the street and asked them a question – “Which is more toxic to the human body – Alcohol or LSD?” – they’d say LSD. Well, looking at the graph, one can see that alcohol is outranked only by heroin, taken intravenously, nutmeg (of all things), the cough suppressant – dextromethorphan, and several other drugs. LSD is one of the least toxic substances on the list. Now, I’m not advocating procuring some good ‘ol LSD and taking it. It’s just that oftentimes we must look below the surface to find truth. Happy reading!

This is a wonderful article – replete with pictures (National Geographic) and data (thanks to the Pew Research Center). To my
American friends – this is the future of our country. I wonder how this shift, this blending, will affect stereotyping behavior? How will the behavior morph and change? Will it increase, decrease, or remain the same? All good questions to ponder over. I can imagine good ‘ol London – chock full of diversity – sharing the same fate as outlined in the article. Food for thought!

Results of a survey conducted by a market research firm – Harris Interactive. Having internet connection, smart phone, & laptop, is more important than sex. Now, are we talking about casual sex or intimate sex? Would love to know the age of survey participants, also. Survey: Tech More Important Than Sex for Americans.
This is a very good article about posting on social media. It is very difficult to balance between posting, not posting, posting in a malicious manner, and posting in a decent and nice manner. Social Media Trolls | Social Media Today.
