Dear Colleagues,

It seems that the human race insists on having continued hostilities – whether it is attempting to sue a president locally, shooting down passenger airplane in the Ukraine or attacks verging on war in the middle east. Our international website for rue cannot keep up with it all, but it can have posts related to possible reasons for the global unrest, if not solutions. Even the weather is temperamental, but as I write, the northeast is enjoying a few beautiful days, just as the website has a few remarkably lovely post. Below I am listing some of my choices, followed by the full listing of this week’s posts.

1) Apropos the world chaos – please note the first Announcement Battling the Life and Death Forces of Sadomasochism at CFS.
