Starving Artist Royalties

A Band, Tribe, or Cheifdom?

How far out does our "extended family" go? Does it include aunts and uncles, or do we go so far as to include people we would invite over to Friendsgiving? How big is our "extended family" and what goals has this group set out to achieve? Does it have a higherarchy structure, or is everyone equal in their say?

Casta Effects

From listening to a book on Mexico's history and Spain's influence on it, a statement in another book, "Don Quixote," I see a chance to reflect deeper on our society for a moment.

Ma Bell

I have a change of format today, as I've done too much research on AT&T, only to realize it is a massive undertaking of how much history this company has. I have decided to focus in on their monopolistic history from different angles in hopes we may walk away with a bit more information, at one level or another, than what we had when we went in.

Too Much Information

There's a lot available to learn out there. What do we do with all that we take in? Is it worth recalling? How well do we store this for recollection in the future?
