When I was a kid, Krispy Kreme was a local donut shop.  Carter Rudolph was a year ahead of me in school and his dad was Mr. Krispy Kreme. They were the donuts you bought at the grocery store.  When I was a teenager, they opened a store with a counter.  You could go in and get fresh donuts and cold milk and eat them right there.  My parents sung in the church choir so they left early on Sundays and my job was to gather my brother and sister and take them to the Krispy Kreme shop for breakfast and then get us to church.  Every Sunday.  Krispy Kreme made having to go to church palatable.

This morning I had Krispy Kreme donuts for breakfast.  Still a great way to kick off Sunday.


My name is going on the list of those NOT at all interested in sticking the USA's nose into Syria.  I've had great faith and confidence in Obama from the get go.  But, this week, I'm disappointed in him.

I've spent many years on the peripheral of executive decision making. I totally understand that the bits and pieces that the public sees of what goes into those decisions are the true tip of the iceberg.  The real reasons - good or bad - are and always will be deeply hidden from view.

But, I'm having a hard time find ANY possible reason of any kind that would make it ok for the U.S. to be involved in Syria at all.  And I don't buy the crap about one time, get in and get out, short term action one single bit. If anything has escalation written all over it, this sure does.


Today's swim is at 11.  There is no swim tomorrow so today's needs to count for double.  I don't have other plans.  It's really still too warm to get excited about doing much of anything extra outside of the house.  Happily these days are getting fewer and fewer.
