Non compos mentis is Relative
Product Description
Melissa’s marriage to Thomas brought her into his family – a group of people unlike any she’d ever known. At the center was her new mother-in-law Shirley, who was apt to choose a first-aid manual as bedtime reading for the kids, or teach them how to open childproof caps. At first, Melissa thought Shirley might be crazy – then she realized that Shirley just had a unique way of doing everything. Over the course of twenty-five years, Melissa learned about Shirley’s upbringing in a Depression- era orphanage, and became as fascinated by Shirley’s history as she was her unvarnished and original take on the world. Crazy is Relative is a rich memoir that explores how we’re shaped by our histories, and how a mother and wife devoted to the same man became family to one another. From Parker J. Palmer (author of Let Your Life Speak, A Hidden Wholeness, and Healing the Heart of Democracy): "What do you get when you cross Oliver Twist with One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest with The Odd Couple with The Book of Ruth? You get this amazing memoir by Melissa Keller—who knows what it means to love even when it’s not easy to love, and knows how to write about it surpassingly well. Within a few pages, I wanted more. When I came to a section titled “Thy Crazy-ass People Shall Be My Crazy-ass People,” I was hooked. Here’s a bone-deep exploration of love, not the Valentine’s version, but gritty, grounded love. It’s set in the context of a surreal family story, but so much is surreal these days. At a time when many of us feel surrounded by “crazy” 24/7, it’s hard to remember that love can see us through. Melissa Keller is one of those rare guides who can help us get to the other side with our hearts intact."

Swim Daily, Melissa Keller

Selling Cars — Sgt. Tony Ludlow, blog post for 1/21/2015

“We’re going to sell two cars,” I told my 11th grade US History class. “I’m going to split up the class into four sales teams to generate four different and distinct marketing strategies for each of these cars,” I continued. “One team will design a strategy based on an appeal to sex, another team an appeal to fear, a third team an appeal to safety, and the last team an appeal to status,” I said. The two cars we were “selling” were completely different kinds of cars: a very sporty red Toyota Celica and a very common black Volvo station wagon. The point of the weeklong exercise was to get students to think about the two cars to sell, the appeal and approach to sell them, along with all of the other details connected to the advertising. Yellow journalism, false advertising, and political propaganda in the context of American history, specifically from 1900-1945, was where this particular exercise fit into the lesson plan. It was an amazing exercise that, by week’s end, taught the student how to identify biases, agendas, propaganda, and opinions in articles, speeches, and in sales pitches, no matter if those messages came from television commercials, cable news... The lives of 3,000 innocent people were taken by an ideology/theology unknown to all of us. I was out of my depth in trying to explain these things and because I didn’t understand this heinous act, I turned to one of my brothers-in-law for help. Prior to 9/11 my brother-in-law owned his own nuclear power consulting business with over 25 contracts in the Middle East alone. His many extended trips to the region, along with living in Saudi Arabia for over 2 years, equipped him with intimate knowledge of that kind of ideology/theology. What my brother-in-law produced was a 10 page primer explaining Islam, radicalized Islam, and the mindset of most of those calling the shots in the Middle East. Most of the information in that document has, by now, become somewhat common knowledge to most of us after 13 years and two wars fighting that ideology/theology in some form or another. But in September of 2001, that paper explained things that were foreign to most of us, that is, most of. Source: USMC Fitness Boot Camp Briefing Room
