Marty’s photo of the day #3268: Yesterday Deb and I went hiking in the Calf Creek Wildlife Management Area, which is in the foothills of the Sapphire Mountains, on the opposite side of the valley we live in. For those not familiar with the area, Montana’s Bitterroot Valley is 95-miles-long, with a population of just […]
A Facebook friend, who is a cop, messaged me privately to say he didn’t appreciate one of my posts this week that criticized cops. Even though I was careful to say “not all cops,” he still felt I painted with too broad of a brush. As a liberal, I had to think carefully about that. […]

Marty’s photo of the day #3256: I took this picture off the coast of Antarctica. On this glorious day, the humpback whales played with the Zodiac Deb and I were in. They’d come at us at a fast clip, and just when it looked like they would knock us into the water, they’d dive underneath […]
