Review of 'Who Killed JFK? Episode 4'
Episode 4 of Who Killed JFK, the podcast with Rob Reiner and Soledad O'Brien, was just put up today. It's all about Lee Harvey Oswald, prior to his day in the Texas Book Depository, or wherever he was on that terrible day in 1963 when JFK was assassinated.

A Palestinian's plea for life of her people to be valued by humanity
Israel’s genocidal campaign against the Palestinian people in Gaza and the West Bank is not an isolated atrocity... history is littered with similar inhumane examples of the savagery mankind is capable of.

Could The War In Ukraine Have A Secondary Purpose?
‘Written by a Human’ This article is not about the Falklands War per-se’ but the reasoning behind many wars could show there could be a deeper reason for world conflicts and, ‘and one, You Would Not Expect.’

I had lunch at McDonald’s last week. I was there mostly because I love the Fillet-O-Fish. I order it each time I visit. It tastes melt-in-your-mouth amazing, and it's healthier than the burgers, there’s a bit of fish buried inside all that deep-fried breading.
