Why would I not write what I mean??? — What the author really meant. I've had this thought since at least high school, myself. All the more so since I became an author as well. (Snurched from [info]deborahjross, who snurched it in turn from [info]rosehelene.)

Could Conjoined Twins Share a Mind? — Unusual neuropsych.

Osama bin Laden's cover 'was blown by one his closest allies'

Republicans seem to soften on immigration As the next presidential election nears, would-be GOP nominees are emphasizing sympathy for some illegal immigrants, in what is either a strategic feint or a reflection of changed political terrain. A glimmer of reality-based sanity in the GOP primary? With their voting base? Right. Also, this just in, monkeys are flying out of my butt.

Recently I have been more 'n' more, which is fairly rare for me, but fascinating. Cannot always articulate 'em, even if'n the memories remain as visuals, as the process of sticking words to 'em makes 'em go "poof" and disappear.

Howzabout you on the pump?

I drowse too much on the pump to remember them with any detail. :(

I do, often. I remember some of them with eerie clarity, like this nightmare I had when I was about five involving a tower at night and a swamp. Just yesterday I had a strange dream and when I woke up, I remembered I dreamed something in that setting before.

I remember some of them. Usually not in much detail; but there are two I've remembered for years.

1) I'm in the driver's seat of a car going down a mountain road. The controls are strange; the only one I can figure out is the tiller. I decide to pull over till I understand what I'm doing.

I ask the other person in the car which things are the brakes.

"There are no brakes."

2) I thought I was awake; woke and realized I'd been dreaming. Then I woke, and realized THAT was still a dream. Then....

When I finally woke for real, took me a while to be sure.

Maybe they're realizing the positive economic impacts. Even the Texas comptroller recently admitted that illegal immigrants are responsible for far more tax money in the state's coffers than the state spends on them.

Or as the saying goes, "If you don't like illegal immigrants, quit hiring them". My experiences in the D.C. / Northern Virginia area were that most of the people talking tough about illegal immigrants were more often than not employing or benefiting from them in some way.
