Doggerel Dave said:

Good straightforward job your poem, which I liked for its simplicity.
Comments by author a little more complicated, but I enjoyed a trip to NPR, as slivers of it\'s output do end up on ABC (Aust Broadcasting Commission - our public radio). However I never investigated further.

Was you 21 then?! Oops, that should be \'were\'. Another one of those words.

I never ran along lac leman, but plenty of times along lake Zuerich, once all the way from the lake to the top of the Uetliberg. The things we did.....

Lethal Injection
dusk arising said:

There is something wrong with capital punishment. Something wrong with the collective term murderer. How can we class the one off killer who \'murdered\' her husband for revenge at his cruelty along with the callous murderer who has killed many in a life of crime?
Alternatives to capital punishment cost money. It seems a commercial decision to execute and cut costs. But not the way the USA does it.

Lethal Injection
orchidee said:

This sounds like tones at the end of the book of Judges to me. The ghastly story of a murdered concubine cut up, and distributed to all the tribes.
Yet we are curious. We want to snoop in on TV programmes such as Death Row, if not ghoulishly wishing we were there in person.

Lethal Injection
Doggerel Dave said:

Took a couple of reads, but I think I\'m getting there.
Capital punishment is just that - punishment. Not only State sanctioned loss of life, but the methods used - hanging, shooting, electric chair, and even this last is, I understand not administered expertly and effectively. Not to mention the premeditated psychological torture or the innocents wrongly convicted. Loathe it all.
An enquiry at Google relating to First Amendment Capital Punishment yielded some interesting information confirming that oftimes lethal injection methods were shrouded in secrecy. My education continues....
Although I haven\'t quite put religion and church into the mix, I wouldn\'t put anything past them.
BTW - Voluntary euthanasia is an entirely different matter for me.

Lines for a BBW
Robert Southwick Richmond said:

Big Beautiful Woman. The word was coined by Carol Shaw, who started a magazine called BBW some time in the 1980s. (It folded many years ago.) The word is well known in the US, perhaps not elsewhere. I can only love a fat woman. Fortunately I\'m very happily married to one.

Both racy and entertaining! I think I can easily guess what BBW stands for!

Whiskey and Blood Run Together
dusk arising said:

Keep that whiskey stuff out of your system I\'d say. Try whisky instead, it\'s the genuine article.

Whiskey and Blood Run Together
Doggerel Dave said:

I hate to have to ask you, but can I have the whiskey?
Apart from that, sorry you\'ve lost me beyond the fact of blood donation and attendant hazards.
As an aside: Years ago I was a blood donor in London. The collection point was The Crypt, St Martin in the Fields - I still have the invitation card somewhere.

For a Nuclear Cargo Cult
Doggerel Dave said:

Nice picture of a post apocalyptic world there. Yor mean noone, no sliver of information anywhere, gave a clue that this glow might be dangerous?
I think I\'d like to stay this side of the Big Disaster, thanks.

Einstein\'s T-Shirt
orchidee said:

A fine write Robert.
Einstein, though wise, had some odd ideas of some things. Then the saying: \'Great men/women are not always wise\'.
