“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Moonrise in Gulf Shores, Alabama

Sorry for the light posting lately. It's been super busy at work, at home, and I've had to travel some.

Hopefully I'll get back on track. I just got back from watching my son compete in the Alabama high-school track championships in Gulf Shores. We stayed on the 10th floor of a condo building which overlooked the famous Sea&Suds beach restaurant. But the reason I took this picture is that the moon is currently closer to the Earth than it will be for some time and so it appears very large.

It didn't seem to make the waves any bigger or the tide different, but if NASA says the moon is closer, who am I to argue? Those scientists aren't flying shuttles or going to the space station any more so all they have to do is moon watch....so if they say it's closer, I guess it's closer.

Great pic Ed. I too wandered outside the house to view said moon. At the time I viewed it didn't seem especially big but, like you said, if they say it's closer...
