Pastors Praise Anti-Gay Massacre in Orlando, Prompting Outrage – The New York Times

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.”

Drugs and Toxicity – The Atlantic

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!

National Geographic Determined What Americans Will Look Like in 2050, and It’s Beautiful – Mic

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!
