The strange story of the SS Warimoo, or, Does anybody really know what time it is?

The date was 30 December 1899. Know what this means? First Mate Payton broke in, we're only a few miles from the intersection of the Equator and the International Date Line...

Yesterday in line to vote in deepest South Texas

McAllen. Ground Zero for the immigration debate, family separations, and assorted goose stepping Trumpian policies.

In a long line, on the first day of early voting, I see two elderly black women. One in her sixties, the other in her 80's and walking with the help of a cane and the younger black woman.

As they advance in line they turn around and scan the long lines. They see me, watching them. I bow slightly and smile. They smile back and proceed along the line to exercise their civic duty, and their right.

I'm left with a lump in my throat and follow them in line to perform mine.
