Minding the Middle

Jana Rea

I have always been a *via media* person myself; looking for common ground between two extremes, two contrary views always seemed a practical matter of living together. I probably learned that as a kid with a Catholic father and a Protestant mother, and that predisposed me to maneuver for the ...

Standing with Israel

Jana Rea

This is existential. Not just for Israel but for America. I will say it publicly because I believe it utterly. To the extent that this President does not maintain a pure policy of support for Israel, he misreads the irrevocable nature of the American commitment to Israel, he misreads history ...

I've been schooled.

Jana Rea

Thanks to my friends and constructive comments, i have learned that all caps *feels* like YELLING when read. My apologies where needed. And now i know how to format a case change from yesterday's blog. For discussion sake, lets take this a topic at a time, shall we? (again, this ...

Occupiers Wichita Style

Jana Rea

*What I wish I'd said. . .* but I best start with what was said in a respectful exchange over the patio fence at Hero's last Friday night in Wichita's Old Town. . . I engaged a small parade of chanting protesters by asking them what it is they want. ...

Jana Rea

The Royal Wedding Day Retrospective

Jana Rea

OK, *now* about the Royal Wedding, the reason for the trip, as Jane and I experienced it on Buckingham Palace grounds. 7:00 --Gloucester Road Underground was surprisingly vacant. Made me wonder if the rest of London was already in place. . . . http://www2.ljworld.com/users/yayarea/photos/2011/may/5/213315/ the answer was, oh yes! and ...

alternatively . . .

Jana Rea

There is a reason that word is well used in the British vocabulary-- the best plan is certain to change; so in London, plan A, B, C and route A, B, and C must be worked out before setting off on an adventure because invariably one of the tube lines ...

Time zone confusion

Jana Rea

http://www2.ljworld.com/users/yayarea/photos/2011/apr/28/212901/ Two watches -- one set to CST and one to Greenwich MeanTime--that helps orient me, but I am still confused about meal time; so we eat when we are hungry here.
