It's Work That Makes You Happy
(Jul. 21, 2014)

Hello Garrison, Enjoyed the re-broadcast from 1985. More of those would be fun to listen to. A question: How have you changed since 1985? What do you think about now as opposed to thirty years ago? Got me thinking and,...

Listened to the show Saturday and it was not bad. It was one of those days full up with billowy clouds and wind and sun, and felt like summer in every way. Except one. With all the graduation festivities, the...

Shakespeare's Slave Sonnet (#57)

Shakespeare Sonnet-a-Day

Shakespeare Sonnet-a-Day

Sonnet #57



Being your slave, what should I do but tend
Upon the hours and times of your desire?
I have no precious time at all to spend,
Nor services to do, till you require.
Nor dare I chide the world-without-end hour
Whilst I, my sovereign, watch the clock for you,
Nor think the bitterness of absence sour
When you have bid your servant once adieu;
Nor dare I question with my jealous thought
Where you may be, or your affairs suppose,
But, like a sad slave, stay and think of nought
Save, where you are how happy you make those.
So true a fool is love that in your will,
Though you do any thing, he thinks no ill.

Whose Fault Is The Gaza Bloodshed?
It's the question that brought a conservative journalist and a far-left TV host to agreement: who is to blame for the civilian deaths in Gaza? "I feel terrible for a Palestinian child who dies," HBO's Bill Maher said, "but if it's your father, your brother, your uncle who's firing those rockets into Israel, who's fault is it really? Do you really expect the Israelis not to retaliate?" Watch the powerful segment HERE.

Two transients armed with a baseball bat and several aggressive dogs entered an Oregon home and started beating a man early Wednesday morning. But tables were soon turned, and the two homeless men, terrified, ran from the scene and called 911. Learn what happened HERE.

Ex-Banker Defies Obama

An ex-Citibank banker recently revealed on video where he's hiding more than $250,000 from President Obama. "It's perfect," says the ex-banker.
