Morning Feature

Morning Feature – Twixt and Tween (Meta Monday)

The resident faculty left this road sign outside the mail room door:

← Here || There →

At least they made their intentions clear. (More)

First our thanks to last week’s writers….

On Monday, you shared your stories of offline political activism in Things We Did This Week and addisnana shared Tears of Hope in Midday Matinee.

On Tuesday, Winning Progressive urged Yes, We Should Politicize the Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting in Morning Feature, we decried Junk Science and Deadly Policy in Furthermore!, readers helped tell Tuesday’s Tale: Doompocageddon! in Midday Matinee, and winterbanyan saw that Amazon Trees May Survive Warming in Our Earth.

On Wednesday, Winning Progressive shared Comments on Judicial Elections and More at New York Times in Morning Feature, the Squirrel saw what might be A Tipping Point on Gun Safety in Furthermore!, addisnana mused on The Backseat Driver and the Fiscal Cliff in Midday Matinee, and winterbanyan spotted Virtual Reality Aids Medical Research in Our Earth.

On Thursday, we began our series on Ends of the World with The Mayacalypse in Morning Feature and triciawyse offered Fursdai Furries in Midday Matinee.

On Friday, we continued our series on Ends of the World with Ends and Odds in Morning Feature, we were all invited to Dance at Árbol Squirrel! in Furthermore!, and triciawyse shared Frieday Critters in Midday Matinee.

On the weekend, we concluded our series on Ends of the World with The Ends are Near in Saturday’s Morning Feature, Ms. Crissie was asked to Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid? in Sunday’s Morning Feature, Winning Progressive offered Weekend Reading in Furthermore!, we smiled at Silly Sunday: Merry Christmas Eve Eve in Evening Focus, and winterbanyan brought our weekly Eco News Roundup in Our Earth.

Note: Please share your stories of offline political activism in Things We Did This Week.

That leaves only the road sign left outside the mail room by the resident faculty, as they made their way from the wine cellar library where they spent the weekend drinking thinking on our motto of Magis vinum, magis verum (“More wine, more truth”) to the hot tub faculty lounge for their weekly game where the underwear goes flying planning conference. The sign read:

← Here || There →

At least they made it easy this week, perhaps thinking the staff needed extra time to wrap our last few presents and put them beneath the holiday tree. Not that we would do that this morning, as the BPI holiday tree is Árbol Squirrel, right beside the hot tub faculty lounge, where they’re having their game where the underwear goes flying planning conference. We wouldn’t want them to think we were peeking eavesdropping.

Regardless, as the resident faculty are neither Here nor There, they clearly have no plans for the week and will take each day as it comes. Given the business of the season, we think their Not A Plan is the most sensible Not A Plan available.

So we’ll wrap those last few presents and put them out later. Once it’s safe….

+++++

Happy Monday!

    Taking the week as it comes sounds like a good idea. :) I think that’s how most of us are going to have to take it, plans notwithstanding. Being humans, we almost always have plans. Being humans, we almost always watch them go awry.

      The rumor mill says the resident faculty are already working on ideas for the coming weeks. I think they’re taking this week as it comes to save themselves time to read whatever else they’re up to…. ;-)

      Good morning! ::hugggggs::

    ← Here || There → sounds like a sensible idea. :smile: Plus, I think Ms. Crissie deserves a break if she wants one. :smile:

      Thank you for the kind words, addisnana. Word is the resident faculty think Thursday the 27th might be a good time to consider other significant births in the history of humankind…. ;-)

      Good morning! ::hugggggs::
