Lakewood Holiday Bazaar Was Fun

I spent yesterday from 7:30 am to 4 PM at my table at the Lakewood Community Center Holiday Bazaar. It was fun so the hours flew by.   Lisa joined me for about 90 minutes mid-day. She took some pix of me at the table and I took a few of the display. I’ll share…

Midterms are Winding Down, Madman Trump is Winding Up…

I breathed a sigh of relief when the midterms put the House of Representatives back in the hands of Democrats so there is a counter-balance against Trump and Company’s worst excesses.   It didn’t last long. It never does, and it never will, as long as we have a Two Year Old in the Oval…

Robert F. Kennedy: A Remembrance

I have one enduring political hero. Had he lived and become President, I believe that none of the national nightmare we see unfolding right now would be happening.

Women in Revolt

WOMEN IN REVOLT WHY IT TAKES A WELL-DEFINED MONSTER TO PROVOKE MASS RESISTANCE   Women aren’t usually trouble-makers; they’re too busy being problem-solvers.   Women solve problems all the time–their own and others’– and at the end of every work day, and on weekends, their work doesn’t usually end; they just assume a different set…

Powerful Perverts Reign Today

Powerful perverts reign in America today. Perhaps they always have, because we’ve allowed a white male patriarchal society up until now. It took hundreds of years for women to get the vote. It’s taking a helluva long time to learn to discern how to use it to our benefit. According to a recent survey, nearly…
