Trump teaches children that revenge is okay
The Christian-right gets their panties in a twist if two same sex people kiss on television—because “children are watching!” Knowing that, isn’t it ironic that they don’t get upset when their “champion,” Donald Trump, assaults women, calls people derogatory names, goes on a deranged rant at the National Prayer Breakfast, profits off of the presidency, […]

I shot this photo in Costa Rica, and it appears in the full-color glossy glory in my second book, Endangered Edens: Exploring the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Costa […]
Happy Groundhog Day!
Yelling bullshit at people I otherwise agree with
I am a liberal on virtually every issue. That said, I believe liberals hurt their causes when they go beyond what’s helpful and into the absurd.

Marty’s photo of the day #3150: Just sittin’ on the floor of the Sea of Cortez, with a very mellow octopus on my feet. Oh, did she fall asleep? (Photographed in Mexico)
