Whats under your Tree this Christmas

Show us Your Guns

 Just Google Kids and Guns and you will see dozens of pictures like these two . How do we change this kind of mentality in our culture ? If we don't limit gun power and/or  ownership. We need to expand police protection and mental health for our troubled kids

Bozeman the Glitter and the Grime

 Well the Metroplex seems to be falling into the Season. Christmas lights and one day sales. Yet perhaps because of the marginal snow, there is also an Aura of gloom ( Or perhaps despair ?) .  Visiting the library today I found a homeless man taking a nap in the magazine section. Guess we should be happy with what we have.
Hopefully if we survive the Fiscal Cliff and the Mayan Apocalypse. 2013 will bring us better things.  What are you going to change, or become or give up for the New Year ?

The Killing fields

Very soon now the  annual Shooting of Yellowstone Bison will begin again

Bison bison bison bison
All I can think about are bison.
There are wild bison being killed
as they try to leave the Park
and move into their homeland.
There are also trees being cut,
mountains mined,
rivers dammed, seas polluted,
houses bulldozed and burned down,
wars brewing,
lands laid waste;
But all I think about are bison.
I have watched them die.
They crowd out other thoughts
sweeping in hordes
darkening the horizons of my plain mind,
trampling me.
I am grazed now, bison, I am trampled.
Go now, to other horizons
and I will recover for you.
I release you
from the park of my psyche. Go now
spread into your domain.
Pour across the minds of all people
Fill their thoughts with your thundering image
Roam through conversations
until the society of people shakes
with your hoofbeats,
and helplessly, joyously, welcomes you
back again.
O Bison,
