This Tortuguero insects post was prepared 10 days ago while yesterday I decided to add below a totally unrelated link to an article I liked when read yesterday:

Bonus Link from E.J. Dionne, Jr.

Why we should all be liberal: The power of an adjective

Column by E.J. Dionne, Jr. in yesterday’s Washington Post, March 12, 2023. It helps describe who I am and why I think most “liberals” (as either an adjective or a noun) are more like Jesus than most “conservatives” (as either an adjective or a noun). What I believe spiritually and politically is based on me being a “follower of Jesus” first and foremost and why I can no longer identify as a Southern Baptist or Evangelical (my former life) and even more certainly not as a Republican in the states.

And note that Dionne quotes extensively from what he calls “one of this year’s most important political books,” Michael Walzer’s “The Struggle for a Decent Politics: On ‘Liberal’ as an Adjective,” published last month.

“Choice, not chance, determines your destiny.”

  1. Charlie, I was not able to read all of this since I don’t subscribe but I did get enough to know that it is an excellent article. I have always been proud of you for standing up and living honestly for your beliefs even though I know it has not always been easy in this world today. It seems like these days (at least in the US) many people have their own definitions of words such as “Liberal” and “Conservative” in order to fit where they want them to fit. It makes me sad to see the many divisions in the US these days because of those different definitions.

    I enjoyed your post Charlie, even the “bugs”!
