Some might call it living.
Anyway, this evening, in a city which commands the attention of free people everywhere, life, and timelessness, are on my mind. And they are so because of a city thousands of miles away.
Tonight, in Corpus Christi, Texas, my parents have arrived at their new home.
It's my family homestead.
As you know, if you read my ramblings, my father recently retired from his post with the Army Corps of Engineers. While I don't pretend to be a scientist, as he is, I do know he quietly and adeptly climbed the ranks of his position into this post of some quiet influence. See, unlike me, my dad is a quiet man. His work speaks for him, and his accomplishments are memorialized in medals and certificates I've only seen glimpses of since, well, allocates and honors aren't really my dad's thing. Nonetheless, I know this much:
My dad is one hell of a scientist.
Anyway, after giving of himself for the last however long, since 1992, I guess, He's decided it's time to watch the sun set on a life well lived in the world of work while the sun rises on the next chapter of what it is he's to do. Whatever that is, it's in Corpus. The city of my family. And the first order of business is that my father - as is his way - will make sure my Grandmother, Meme, rides off into the sunset in the most comfortable way imaginable.
My dad's back at his boyhood home to make sure his mom goes home... in peace.
If you know me, you know the great degree of reverence I have for my grandparents. My grandfather passed the year Lancaster newspapers named me a "bachelor of the year" and I spent my "article" paying tribute to him, his life's work and his generation's accomplishments.
That was 1999.
Over a decade later now, my grandmother is entering the sunset of her life. And with that sunset comes the passing of an amazing generation.
We think we've got it hard. We have no idea.
Anyway, as a son should, my dad - along with my mom who has stood by him for - wow 36 years now - has returned to our homestead as a family to make sure that what we are is a family lives on. And with his return, the idea of "home" has been retooled for a new generation.
Tonight, I'm thankful that Kyla will know what it's like one day soon to hunt easter eggs around the same pool I once hunted for treasures near on those mornings when the easter bunny left these eggs.
I'm thankful she'll get to know - as I do - the joy of coming down the stairs on Christmas morning to find a beautiful tree in the formal living room surrounded by presents left by Santa, who found his way down the chimney with these perfect logs which, for some reason, never seemed to move. She'll get to run down the hallways upstairs, get into trouble for reading the great history of our family as told in the keepsakes in the cedar chest in the upstairs hall closet, she'll joyride in the golf cart while learning how to drive and she'll probably sneak downstairs to grab some amazing cookies from the cookie jar which Meme made just hours earlier.
She'll commit the sins I committed in that same house while growing up... and she'll learn just how amazing our family really is.
I'm thankful that the place I've always known I could go home too - no matter what - will be waiting for her should she ever need to find the need to, well, go to a place where you're always family, and where there's always a bed, a meal, and a place to find rest at no matter what plight you might find yourself in as we travel through this life. As it has been for my brothers and me. As it has been for my parents and my Aunt and cousins. As it will be as long as life allows our family line to live on.
The ideas of 'home' and 'family' seemingly have become this disposable concept. But in reality, no matter the dysfunction, they're just as strong as they've ever been.
Tonight, I'm thankful my family - this generation at least - has been able to stake its claim and has been able to bridge the past to the present. It is the responsibility of future generations to ensure that what is now continues into what will be...
... but I'm pretty certain that will happen.
After all, we're family. That's all we've got at the end of all things, right?
Even at the end of a day. Like today. Like right now.
Here's to your family as we slip into slumber this evening.
And in closing, please, I beg of you - remember - there's nothing so wrong that can't be cured by what is right... when it comes to the unconditional love you find in a family. In any family.
God bless you...

The bottom line is that this man felt so exploited by the government that he felt there was no other recourse for him other than to make one last statement in life... a statement which ended in the destruction of a building and before the television cameras of the world's media which, of course, loves to televise a good disaster.
The disaster here is not that this man was obviously deeply troubled.
The disaster here is that a middle class man felt abandoned by his government, and then, felt that the government wanted to take what little dignity he had left because, well, he had it and he owed it.
Imagine what might have been going through his head...
He watched as our elected go round and round on healthcare, all the while the insurance companies raise rates even higher than ever before. He watched as people went broke as insurance companies paid out bonuses funded with the money which they essentially stole by denying genuine claims. He watched while insurance companies let patients die and our elected leaders did nothing.
Let me say that again. He watched people die at the hands of an industry which has paid our elected officials to do absolutely nothing.
Google the word 'co-conspirator.'
Imagine what he thought about Wall Street and the bailout. Executives at companies which brought our economy to it's knees were given billions and billions of dollars of our tax dollars to "shore them up" while their executives were handed millions in bonuses... while he had the IRS taking his last $10 grand.
Oh, and the companies? Big business? Corporate America? Yeah, well, they're barely paying any taxes anyway and using loopholes to lessen the burden.
After talking to DM at work about it, I read this man's manifesto. And while I do not agree with his decisions and his actions, I don't completely disagree with some of his reasoning.
His frustration and our government's inability to get anything done is shared by so many in America's middle class. It's not about conservative or liberal. It's about real needs. People need healthcare. The middle class does NOT need to shoulder the load of our nation's tax burdens. Government needs to get some work done and it needs to stop the endless cycle of rhetorical bullshit which passes as our national discourse.
Washington DC - and in particular - the inability of our politcal parties to get anything done - is the reason, to me, this man cracked and did what he did today. It's because of republicans and democrats who care more about the special interests than they do about people who are just trying to live the American dream.
I don't agree with his actions. But I understand his frustration.
This incident should be a wake up call to anyone -- regardless of party -- who is an elected representative of the people. It's not about Obama. It's not about taxes.
It's about one man from the middle class, struggling to live the American dream, who was tired of shouting for attention from his elected leaders...
... and hearing nothing in return.
We need to fix the problems in DC. It starts with making sure the elected officials actually give a damn about something other than themselves.
I'm going to watch some more CNN now. I hope we can fix this before even worse incidents happen.
We're a better country than this.

Trashy chick. 800 dudes? By 15? Really? Hooker...
This dude is my hero...
I've gotta tell you - that question that day started me thinking... about so many things... and you'll get to see and learn more when you watch the show next week on MTV (the network formerly known as music television)...
I'm dozing like a mofo but I wanted to say one thing before I pass out into the matrix for a nightly recharge...
I'm thankful I've had some amazing things that I've been blessed to have been a part of. Back in the FLZ day, I was on this show called FM Nation... which was cool. Now, here we go again. I'm just so thankful. Thankful I've had some unique opportunities. Thankful that I've got a lifestyle job which never gets old, never stops being fun and mostly I'm thankful I've got a gig that allows me to give my little one the chance to have some unique experiences...
I'm really more or less thinking about Kyla... and what she'll say when she sees Daddy on TV again. I'm wondering what she'll tell - if anything - to her friends. And on some other level, I'm wondering if she'll tell her little girl one day that she was and is proud of her daddy. I'm hoping that she knows that if this whole radio-content-online-televison-thing ever fades away, that I'll still be her daddy and I'll still be the best I can be so she can be proud of me and that I'll always do my best to provide her with the stuff - the love - which can make her dreams come true.
I'm pretty sure she's proud of me. At least... well, you know...
I hope so. God knows I'm trying.
So I'm back on MTV again. This show is amazing. What do you want to do before God says it's time to leave this sphere we call Earth...

I guess I get wanting to make some cash and be famous, but really? First that chick with the bolt ons and now this? I think ABC has been choosing some drama-beotches with coke issues, boob job issues, family drama and more lately to spice the show up a bit.
I also think they have Bachelor guidelines:
1) Do you look like you could be an international model, with something exotic about your look? If no, leave. If yes, go to next question.
2) Were you ever married before, divorced, are you a baby mama, or are you seperated pending divorce? If yes, go to next question. If no, leave.
3) Are your boobs fake? If yes, go to next question, if no, leave.
4) Do you have some psychotic friends, crazy family members, psycho boys you were banging before the show or ex in-laws who might want to add to the hype of our show and your presence on the show? If yes, go to the next question, if no, leave.
5) Do you mind if we exploit you and your past, and your very soul to make this show a success? If no, leave, if yes, please take your clothes off for the topless model shoot and calendar convention which is the next round of competition for the show.
This is the Google video that made everyone go Awwwwwwww last night during the Grande Game in Hollywood/Ft Lauderdale Florida...

Some I've shared with you. Some I've kept to myself.
Let me tell you about resolution #3 tonight...
I made it a resolution to write some real, physical notes...
So far, I've written President Obama. I've said thanks to some in his administration. I've blown my daughter away with cards, post cards and presents. I've sent some colleagues some notes and more.
Yeah. I've written. Sat down. With a pen. And written...
There is something pretty special about something that is actually written. You know, by hand. On a card. On a note. On a piece of paper. There is something pretty spectacular about knowing that you hold in your hand a piece of paper, or a card, or whatever, that a certain person physically sat down to write on, to share a bit of their life and heart with you. That they spend a second or a minute or an hour of their life to put some thoughts on paper, then, to put in an envelope, with a stamp, and have delivered to you via the United States Postal Service.
Yeah, it's fast becoming a lost art. In the age of the click click send or the instant text or blackberry or iPhone or whatever, sitting down, taking time to gather ones thoughts and to formulate some words and put them on paper faces the same fate traditional film in a camera did.
As Taylor Swift once said via Twitter about Polaroid Cameras... "I miss them... I want them back..."
So, like an ancient shaman commanding a technology on the brink of extinction, I've taken some time lately to send some real notes. To Kyla. To friends. To colleagues and family. To friends who are overseas and to friends who are in the next state.
Hell, last night I ripped a magazine article out of a trade magazine and sent it to a colleague. He'll be shocked I even thought of him.
But I think that's the real thing behind this dying art of writing a note.
That we think about what the person to whom we're writing is doing, about what we're sharing, and we put a bit of ourselves into what we're saying... and sending.
We hide too much behind technology.
When I got to DC, I remember this time when one of my co-workers was preparing a big box - a care package - which she was sending to this boy she loved at the time who was stationed in Iraq serving in Operation whatever-the-eff- the operation was and is that has had us there. I think it's Enduring Freedom. Nonetheless, she prepared this huge box - a care package, stuffed with goodness from home, and assembled with love.
All these years later, they're into the second year of their marriage.
Is it because of these care packages? I'm sure they played a bigger role than hitting reply to a text or an email ever could.
The most amazing thing about this resolution has been that when you stop and look back at the notes and cards YOU have received, you see the story of your life.
For instance, some of the cards and notes I've kept tell the story of me saying goodbye to Tampa when I went off on my South Carolina adventure at 104.7 WNOK. Others I've kept tell me the story of a time when I was in a relationship that was pretty special to me that I thought might be the "always and forever after..." we all dream of. Still others predict the turmoil of what might be to come as other relationships drew to a close.
All in all, these notes reflect moments in time which someone took to share with me. They're each very individual and unique, very precious, and are all very special for what they tell me even still.
Someone once said to me that you "can't put a price on what happens when someone takes a moment of their time to share with you what it is that's on their heart..."
Resolution three is me trying to once again recapture that which I've let slip away from me.
You want me to share a moment with you? Well, you're reading this, so drop me an email with your address, or DM me yours via Twitter and don't think I won't write you a quick note so that we can share a moment in time. It's pretty magical what it can do for you when you write it.
What's even more special is what it might unleash in you while you write.
Try it. You'll be surprised.
From DC, home of Ben's Chili Bowl, Donnie Simpson, the Kane Show and the last best hope of man on Earth...
Are you LOST when it comes to LOST??? If so you're not alone...
Did a spot today on WHITEHOUSEBRIEF on iHeartRadio. I gotta tell you I love doing this because I like getting political about things... that being said, fiscal conservatives who like SHEEP will LOVE this...
