“Sunday Thoughts”


I hope I shall possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man.”

–George Washington


“I believe it is an established maxim in morals that he who makes an assertion without knowing whether it is true or false, is guilty of falsehood; and the accidental truth of the assertion, does not justify or excuse him.”

–Abraham Lincoln

All By Myself In An Airport

When you have an overnight delay at the Las Vegas Airport, what do you do. If you are Richard Dunn and you are feeling creative–you create a music video using Celine Dion’s cover of the Eric Carmen hit; All By Myself.

I’m thinking we all need a little “pick-me-up” to end this week.

This is your “Saturday Diversion”. Enjoy.

For Parkland


On February 14th, 2017; a lone 19-year old, Nikolas Cruz entered the campus of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida armed with an AR-15 and began shooting. 17 people were killed.  According to data from the Gun Violence Archive, a total of 30 mass shooting incidents have occurred in 2018, as of February 14.

UPDATE: 2/20/2018:  A more in-depth analysis of the number of mass shootings has been updated




In memoriam, with this entry, OTRWD “wore” black for the grieving families. The world will feel the loss of those 17 lives for decades to come.
