Monday Musings - September 25, 2017


1. Autumn has arrived although it has felt like summer's last gasp with temperatures over 90 degrees for the past few days. 


Chris and Ethan at Jax's Game
2. Who says that a Cowboys fan and a Redskins fan cannot share the same space?

3. A new Star Trek series, Star Trek Discovery,  debuted last evening. The original series made its appearance 51 years ago during September 1966.

4. Monday Morning Family Sports Report. Winners: Orioles, Redskins. Losers: Steelers, Ravens, Penguins. Remaining to play: Cowboys.

5. Jax hit a grand slam during his baseball game yesterday. It was exciting and was a true homer unaided by opposing team errors. 


6. Supporting and defending the Constitution, the following quote is from the Washington Post opinion piece cited below: As Justice Jackson wrote three-quarters of a century ago, “If there is any fixed star in our constitutional constellation, it is that no official, high or petty, can prescribe what shall be orthodox in politics, nationalism, religion, or other matters of opinion, or force citizens to confess by word or act their faith therein.”

7. Isn't great that we can disagree with each other and still be friends?

Ronald Reagan Quote for the Week


"Two centuries ago, in a hall much smaller than this one, in Philadelphia, Americans met to draft a Constitution. In the course of their debates, one of them said that the new government, if it was to rise high, must be built on the broadest base: the will and consent of the people. And so it was, and so it has been. My message today is that the dreams of ordinary people reach to astonishing heights. If we diplomatic pilgrims are to achieve equal altitudes, we must build all we do on the full breadth of humanity's will and consent and the full expanse of the human heart."
Address to the 42nd Session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York, New York, September 21, 1987
