Threatening Thursday

1a

So much for President Obama’s commitment to a nuclear-weapons-free world.

With its decision on May 22 to block the adoption of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Review Conference’s consensus statement, the Obama administration gave the human species another hefty push toward nuclear catastrophe, shaking the foundations of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT).

Why the sabotage? Well, for one thing, the draft text had the temerity to call for the convening of a conference within six months to prepare the way for a Middle East nuclear-weapons-and-weapons-of-mass-destruction-free zone. It called for all parties to the NPT Review – read especially the United States – to fulfill previous Review Conferences’ promises to begin the process of creating the zone.

    Mowed today. Pulled some weeds, here and there, backwashed the pool filter again. Took a shower and washed my hair when I was done because there is a little graduation ceremony at my grandson’s preschool. Yup, graduating from preschool. I made him a cute card.

    We thought it was silly, but what the heck. My son and his wife love Nicholas and everything to do with him, so I’m going, of course. Grandma will be present. Grandpa is staying home, not feeling good enough to go.

    Sure feels weird to have taken a shower in the middle of the day. I’m normally shower at night but I was a filthy mess after the mowing and weeding.
