Easter in Colorado

I love this state!

A man has received a phone bill for £125 trillion. It was actually his demised father's phone. Without wanting to be disrespectful, maybe they were calls to "the other side", and who knows how far in distance or in time that can be.
Superbabymama directed me to a set of basic rules on how to include the poor in community events. Fema should have read the article. These need not be applied to the new socially engineered communities springing up all over this country, and that the Washington Post writes about. Isn't there something creepy about this form of extreme self segregation?
In another
article the economics of the drug trade in Somalia. It focuses on women dealers. ironically and perhaps a key to their success, these women are forbidden to use the plant khat. And also ironically they are supplying the very substance that turns the men users into agressive and irresponsable addicts. I used to see this phenomenon in the gypsy communities of the Iberian peninsula.

Easter:O.E. Eastre (Northumbrian Eostre), from P.Gmc. *Austron, a goddess of fertility and sunrise whose feast was celebrated at the spring equinox, from *austra-, from PIE *aus- "to shine" (especially of the dawn). Bede says Anglo-Saxon Christians adopted her name and many of the celebratory practices for their Mass of Christ's resurrection. Ultimately related to east. Almost all neighboring languages use a variant of L. Pasche to name this holiday.
1427, "of or pertaining to Easter," from L.L. paschalis, from pascha "Passover, Easter," from Gk. pascha "Passover," from Aramaic pasha "pass over," corresponding to Heb. pesah, from pasah "to pass over.
