Will Cold River’s Biological Weapons or Any History Survive?

It can take years to mold a dream. It takes only a fraction of a second for it to be shattered... (1986 - 2008 Chernobyl and Tomas Imrich)

Truth in politics under any ism as humans are like a golem clay. The phrase jolts, veers towards becoming an oxymoron. We have become so conditioned to political-speak that we assume when our elected representatives talk, they are being economical with the facts, or loose with the truth

We have drifted into a murky world of spin and misinformation, which in part is responsible for our disengagement with the political system. If not for compulsory voting, I'm guessing most people simply wouldn't bother. The rising informal vote demonstrates we are marking the ballot paper under sufferance. Toxic Truth is good for us: Niccolò Machiavelli's ruthless manual for aspiring rulers

The news that the University of Notre Dame, responding to complaints by some students, would ‘shroud’ its 12 134-year-old murals depicting Christopher Columbus was disappointing.

Notre Dame may not be particularly friendly to its Catholic heritage, but its president, the Rev. John Jenkins, demonstrated that it remains true to its jesuitical (if not, quite, its Jesuit) inheritance. Queried about the censorship, he said, apparently without irony, that his decision to cover the murals was not intended to conceal anything, but rather to tell ‘the full story’ of Columbus’s activities.

Many scholars think that in Moses' time, during the 10 plagues of Egypt, anthrax may have caused what was known as the fifth plague, described as a sickness affecting horses, cattle, sheep, camels and oxen.
