Fact Checking: IL News and Anne Coulter

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 28, 2016 in Internet, News & Opinion |

There are times when anyone of a sane disposition, no matter how calm and collected they may wish to appear, just has the feeling that a shovel to the back of the head is as good a solution for someone else as anything sensible. There are some people who cannot think straight – but we […]

Easter: Values, Risings, Greetings

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 27, 2016 in News & Opinion |

It’s one of those several times of year when everyone begins to celebrate and make claims. Claims based on a fable written several thousand years ago, and constantly changed ever since.

Guns And Nipples: The American Way Of Life

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 18, 2016 in News & Opinion |

I don’t know when I first gave up on north American society and its values, but it was probably about the same time as I discovered that Europe is not the Old World with Old World Values some politicians have claimed it to be. And now I look back at the values of the north […]

Truth In Journalism

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 5, 2016 in News & Opinion |

One of our local newspaper groups has decided it is time for a completely new look.

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 30, 2016 in News & Opinion |

If you give ten people a piece of text, ask them to read it and then write down their impressions, you’ll probably get ten different answers.

Hot news since the turn of the millennium, and still no real move towards implementation: the Cashless Society.
