American Exceptualism Rudy Giuliani was espousing his opinion to Fox News that Barack Obama did not love America and didn’t brag enough about “American Exceptionalism.”

Fur Is Not Chic When my 25-pound dog stepped in a toothed steel leg hold trap a few ft off the trail, I learned how “unchic” fur is. I had to carry her out two miles to get to a vet.

Which Is More Dangerous? Just a couple of thoughts I had in response to the letters by Gordon Lee Dean and Jarin Weber in the Feb. 23 issue. Mr. Dean claims that there have been zero deaths from the measles in the past ten years.

Real Action on Climate In “Climate Madness” in the Feb. 9 issue, the writer points out that scientists are all but unanimous and that large numbers of people agree: global warming poses a threat to future generations.

Real Science Wolfgang Pauli, the Nobel Prize winning Austrian-born theoretical physicist, was known not only for his work in postulating the existence of the neutrino but feared for his razor-edged humor.

Yoga journey to India

- November 3rd, 2008
Three area women just left Traverse City for a four-month sojourn in India to study ashtanga yoga in its most pure and ancient form.
Jessica Sharry, who teaches ashtanga yoga at Sared Space Yoga, will travel with students Tracy “T.J.” Andrews and Lillie Wolff. They have been planning the journey for months. All three will share an apartment in the city of Mysore—and, yes, they’ve heard the jokes.
In ashtanga yoga, the student flows vigorously from one pose to another—the sequence of poses are the same each time. Upon mastering the primary sequence or “series,” the student is permitted to go to another series, with six series in all. The women will practice under the two masters in India -- Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, 93, and his grandson, Sharath Rangaswamg -- at the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute. The two men are among the few ashtanga practitioners alive to have reached the sixth series.
In a not so ancient tradition, the three women will blog about their journey—check it out at http://lilliejesstjinindia.blogspot.com. The website for the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute is www.kpjayi.org.
