Why the interest in the penis? There's often humor about the subject, and we all need a good laugh, especially when we incorporate it with politics. It takes us away from personal and global dramas, and gives us a collective laugh. Like anything else, it is only a temporary fix, but well needed.
Next ... why all the fuss about the royal baby boy? Women and creation have highlighted the news for years. We follow families perhaps to heal issues, to see others' dramas, or something else. It's just a diversion as is most else. In the case of Prince George of Cambridge, it's about his parents and their positive energies. Personally I think monarchies are ridiculous and should all cease to exist making no sense in the 21st century, but a baby is a baby and most people embrace their innocence and journey.

In my wake-up dream this morning, soon to be born Prince George of Cambridge showed me his penis so I would know William and Kate were having a baby boy, who arrived hours later. The baby is part of the royal family and the political future of the UK.

Let's move to politics here in the city and another baby boy with a link to politics - Jordan Zain Weiner, born December 2011. His mom is Huma Abedin currently a director working on the transition team of former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
His father is the notorious peter tweeter - Anthony Weiner - forced to resign in June 2011 after a sexting scandal. Currently Weiner is running for mayor of NYC (we are so screwed) - acknowledging his shortcomings once again and defending what he says is past activity, though many women have come forward who sexted with him. Weiner's cocky expression leads one to conclude he has emotional problems.
Knowing there were other videos out there, he really has balls to seek election at a time Americans hope their elected officials are straight shooters and scandal free. Seriously? That will never happen. The games of politics are always laced with deception and intrigue, sex being a "key" part of it. These men work hard and "play hard" - and like many of us, outgrow the partner we started with - moving on with our next karmic relationship. Tuesday it all hit the fan for Weiner - putting him back on the front page - this time dragging his wife into the mix. This marriage is so doomed. I wonder if Bill (Clinton) advised her to stay? This reaps of money and power.
On Saturday July 20, 2013, the Smallest Penis Contest was held at the Kings Country Bar in Brooklyn. According to a Craigslist ad seeking "less endowed men" to prove that "good things can come in small packages".
7 Wild Facts About the Penis Live Science - August 21, 2013
Memorialized in monuments, Grecian statues and bathroom graffiti everywhere, the penis may be the most famous and well-studied human organ on the planet. But despite its outsized profile in the popular imagination, the male member still has a few secrets left to reveal. From penis spines to the ideal size, here are seven wild facts about the male sex organ. The penis may have been a lot scarier in humans' evolutionary past.

NJ.com - July 24, 2013
Over the past 40 years, Wildstein's East Brunswick home has become a sports collectible warehouse: balls; bats; jerseys; spikes; cards; figurines; photographs; lithographs signed by Mickey, Yogi, Whitey, Reggie É all the way up to Jeter and A-Rod.

I think he'll be surprised how much money everything is worth.
Monday July 29 - A surprising message from the Pope Francis ...
Pope Francis: Who am I to judge gay people? BBC - July 29, 2013
Pope Francis said that he will not judge gays and lesbians - including gay priests - a huge shift from his predecessor, who sought to bar men with homosexual tendencies from the priesthood, and another sign that the new pope is changing the church's approach to historically marginalized groups.
Do you ever wonder how long the yellow brick road goes to exit the illusion?

Min - The Egyptian Fertility God
Min - The Egyptian Fertility God
Min is an Ancient Egyptian god whose cult originated in predynastic times (4th millennium BC). He was represented in many different forms, but was often represented in male human form, shown with an erect penis which he holds in his left hand and an upheld right arm holding a flail. As Khem or Min, he was the god of reproduction; as Khnum, he was the creator of all things, "the maker of gods and men". As a god of fertility, he was shown as having black skin to reflect the fertile black mud of the Nile's inundation. His cult was strongest in Coptos and Akhmim (Panopolis), where in his honor great festivals were held celebrating his "coming forth" with a public procession and presentation of offerings. His other associations include the eastern desert and links to the god Horus.
Phallic Architecture Google Images
Phallic architecture consciously or unconsciously creates a symbolic representation of the phallus. Buildings intentionally or unintentionally resembling the human penis are a source of amusement to locals and tourists in various places around the world. Deliberate phallic imagery is found in ancient cultures and in the links to ancient cultures found in traditional artifacts. The worship of the phallus has existed since the Stone Age, and was particularly prevalent during the Neolithic period and the Bronze Age. Phallic architecture became prominent in ancient Egypt and Greece, where genitalia and human sexuality received a high degree of attention. The ancient Greeks honored the phallus and celebrated phallic festivals.
In art and architecture, acutely vertical buildings are often seen as a symbol of masculinity and horizontal buildings are seen as more feminine. The terms "phallic verticality", "phallic erectility" and "phallic brutality" have been referred to by architectural theorists, including the likes of French sociologist Henri Lefebvre, who argued that buildings of phallic architectural type metaphorically symbolize "force, male fertility, masculine violence". Phallic erectility "bestows a special status on the perpendicular, proclaiming phallocracy as the orientation of space" while phallic brutality "does not remain abstract, for it is the brutality of political power. Sigmund Freud metaphorically drew a comparison between "high achievement and the acquisition of wealth as building monuments to our penises." Contemporary scholars in architectural criticism have investigated the relationship between architecture and the body, sexuality, sex, power, and place.
The 102-story Empire State Building, located in Midtown Manhattan, New York City, at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and West 34th Street, is one of the world's most famous landmarks, and is generally thought of as an American cultural icon. Cited by Valerie Briginshaw as a symbol of American pride and "the ultimate sign of American phallic power", it was inaugurated on 31 May 1931.
