Rick Santorum for President?

Posted 01-05-2012 at 03:58 PM by ChrisGeorge

On my personal blog, today, I've written about "Will They Learn to Love Mitt.... Or the Tale of the Activist Judges."

Of course, it's about Mitt Romney's narrow win in the Republican caucuses in Iowa on Tuesday, in which he defeated conservative former Pennsylvania U.S. Senator Rick Santorum by a mere eight votes. Also about the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision of 2010 which enabled Romney's private PACs to viciously attack former House speaker Newt Gingrich of...

I wake at three in the morning feeling alert , as if listening for something. Then I start to think of Steve Marr’s question in response to critiques of his poem The Universe Impresses “How would you express the vastness and beauty of the universe making a strong impression on you?” After turning this question over for a few restless minutes I find I’m in my study, pulling out books in which I think I can find distant stars.

Your Support--A Reminder, etc.

Posted 10-18-2015 at 05:12 PM by Alex Pepple
Dear Eratosphereans,

Once again, it's time (or past time, going by the endless months of dry spell) to remind those can or are willing to, of the need to support Able Muse/Eratosphere per all the 'donate' links on the Sphere pages.
