On an evening walk

Only one cat in the house now, but he's a great one

Lucy disappeared two years ago, and her sister Ginger died recently. That leaves us only Clarence. Although photos generally don't do justice to his beauty, Pam got a nice shot of him on our bed.


Although I'm fishing very little these days, I still maintain an interest in the activity. I've been out on the pond a couple of times this month and both times caught a few bluegills. On an evening trip, I took a picture of the sun setting before walking home.

University of Maryland reflects Middle East conflict

The Jewish students at the University set up displays in the center of the mall a few weeks ago:
As I walked towards class I came across another group of students, apparently from Arab countries, who were demonstrating against Israel at the end of the mall in front of McKeldin Library. I don't believe it was coincidental that they picked this day. I also noticed that some campus policemen were keeping their eyes on both groups.
Some students wearing yamakas were engaging the Arab students in discussions, but everything appeared civil.
