"All You Need Is Love"
In the beginning, I ran with the idea of the Weekly Rampage because I thought it sounded cool. I now realize the idea was also born of optimism. I was young and full of energy then. These days, given my current schedule and workload, I'm feeling too old to get worked up that often.

On the other hand, my options are limited. Monthly Rampage sounds lame -- how passionate can someone be if they only get mad once a month. Semi-monthly Rampage doesn't have any ring to it at all. Bi-weekly Rampage has the sound of something verging on the politically incorrect.

So for the time being, I guess I'll keep shooting and missing for the Weekly Rampage. It still sounds cool. This week's Rampage asks the question, "Where's the Love?" I don't mean Romantic love. I mean the kind of love where you show consideration for your fellow man. It seems to me the world is suffering from a shortage of love. I think we're probably only at 2% capacity.

The world lost a great man when we lost John Lennon. Here was a man who didn't just preach love on Sunday but Eight Days a Week. I can't help but think what a different place the world would be if he had been allowed to live.

Anyway, I've gone on long enough. I wanted to keep it short this time because of the large number of updated pages. So without further ado, here are the updates, With Love, from Me to You.
