It is a time of fear in the face of freedom, a time of an emptying country and swelling cities, a time for the widening of previous roads and the opening of new paths, yet a time when these paths are mined by knowing algorithms of the all-seeing eye. It is the time of the warrior's peace and the miser's charity, when the planting of a seed is an act of conscientious objection. These are the times when maps fade, old landmarks crumble and direction is lost. Forwards is backwards now, so we glance sideways at the strange lands through which we are all passing, knowing for certain only that our destination has disappeared. We are unready to meet these times, but we proceed nonetheless, adapting as we wander, reshaping the Earth with every tread. Behind us we have left the old times, the standard times, the high times.

My first reaction upon seeing this hands-on exhibit was digust: shouldn’t some exhibitions be hands-off? My second reaction was a different kind of disgust: who wants to eat refreshments next to an 8-foot-high section of bowel? My third reaction turned to the inevitable jokes about “passing” through.
My final emotional destination was admiration: it takes […]
If you would rather see the USA spend money on education than on gigantic machines of war, vote for Bernie Sanders for President. […]

The University of Maine, the University of Dayton, Stanford University, and Syracuse University are just a few among the schools that have already chosen to divest, driving down the stock price of fossil fuel companies. Watch for more to join the list. […]
