A former co:worker friend just asked me that, when she saw a pair of earrings I had just made.
For me, skulls never really meant all that much, until I learned about Dios de los Muertos (Day of the Dead).

They say that the definition of crazy is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. The Mary Star Football team keeps playing against bigger schools, still won't pay its coaches, and have kept the same basic coaching staff (changing head coaches but keeping it all in the family) for years while continually having losing seasons. And when hey did have a winning season they limped into the playoffs to get their clocks cleaned. Maybe it is time to actively…Continue

I'm not a political person. I don't think like one or act like one. Maybe that's why I have such a hard time understanding the nature of the game. Be it family politics, corporate politics or government politics, I'm still baffled to this day by the need, of some, to lie, cheat, steal and orate their way to a better position in life.
But, I guess that's just human nature.
Forget politics for a moment, and marvel in Rep. Giffords' courage!
