Don’t Be Un-American
I’m posting this since I’m becoming increasingly concerned about the growing negative attitude toward immigrants. Unless you are a native American, everyone else is an immigrant (though it could be argued that, since Columbus ‘discovered’ America, we were conquerors). Be nice, kids and adults.

Connecting the Dots Podcast
Podcasting hit the mainstream in July of 2005 when Apple added podcast show support within iTunes. I'd seen this coming so started podcasting in May of 2005 and kept going until August of 2007. Unfortunately was never 'discovered' by national broadcasters, but made a delightfully large number of connections with people all over the world because of these shows.

This negative attitude is, unfortunately, spreading around the world (including here in Australia). Popularist politicians base their campaigns around public fears. News outlets cherry-pick their stories to align with the “lazy gangs and dangerous religions” narrative. People in countries like America and Australia forget that it was only a few generations ago that we were the newcomers… that newcomers create wealth, opportunities and bring new tastes in food, fashion and entertainment.
The shallow seas of bigotry have far too many drowning in its waters. The propaganda machine crushes reality. There is but one human race. Just one.
