While the only thing Barbara Walters and I have in common in a slight overbite, I still feel compelled to critique Ms Walters' yearly list and propose one of my own. Certainly I am not foolish enough to think mine will obtain any recognition, no calls from Today, The… Read full post »
In a season that we are told is joyful, that we must make merry, hearts break. No surprise. Hearts have no concept of seasons or holidays. With wariness and obligation, some some call to mind those who cannot or will not find happiness at this time of year or… Read full post »
Yes, I am thankful for Open Salon. It's great to have a forum for voice my opinion, gripes, and joys. People can love what I write or hate it and I'm no worse for the wear.
But there's more that deserves my gratitude. Here is my list for 2013,… Read full post »
Americans gasped in horror, almost as one, as they heard the news: "The President is dead." John F. Kennedy, the thirty-fifth president of the United States of America, died in Dallas, Texas, at 2pm EST, on November 22, 1963. People of a certain generation can relay… Read full post »
Religious leaders come and go, some retire, some leave in disgrace. The Reverend Billy Graham has been a solid influence for millions of Christians and non-Christians for my entire life. Ever strong in the sixties, seventies and eighties, his ministry seemed to declin… Read full post »
Never let a good crisis go to waste. This crisis, aka the Ocare website catastrophe is a cleverly planned mess. Do you really think that the whole thing was a result of a bunch of bumbling boneheads? When Ocare doesn't work, and it won't, it was never sup… Read full post »
Colors are often symbolic: green for jealousy, yellow for cowarice, black for morning, etc. Brown will forever more be associated with disgrace or utter shame.
Confused? Allow me to clarify. The Brown Unversity students showed the lack of valu… Read full post »
Thank you my wonderful Boston Red Sox. In one year you went from Worst to First to World Series Champs! I love all of you and your mountain man beards. It's fun to be a fan, to recapture that long lost youth. It's even more fun when your… Read full post »
Right now, Obamacare is the biggest joke in the U.S.A. Saturday Night Live is having a ball with the ridiculous situation. The Sebelius skit was funny and showed that she and the other Ocare creators, and the web designers are a laughing stock in the U.S. and the… Read full post »
The very first time you can’t recall their face, you panic. Perhaps the one you love has only been deceased for a few months, maybe longer. But your mind’s eye can no longer focus in on the subtleties of their face. It is now a b… Read full post »
For a number of days, a debate has raged over the attack on Syria. Pundits on both sides have defended their opinions. Members of the Senate and Congress are voting, perhaps not so much by conscience, rather by how soon they are up for re-election.&nbs… Read full post »
This morning I finished the book "The Slave Across the Street" by Theresa Flores. But the book isn't finished with me. All day I felt its presence, almost haunting me.
Flores tells of her terrifying days of slavery to a group of men. She does… Read full post »
Thank you and kudos to high school valedictorian Roy Costner IV who tore up his speech opting to recite The Lord's Prayer at his graduation. As always, he was instructed by school officials not to mention God.
When he spoke the beautiful words, many were moved, the usual were apalled.… Read full post »
Many readers were plagued by the narrow minded opinon of David Sirota yesterday on Salon. I had to read it twice to make sure I understood what was being said by the author. Demonizing White Male Privilege, Sirota politicized the catastrophic events of Monday's Boston Marathon.
Sir… Read full post »
If there's anyone who can help me make sense of what's going on, it will be much appreciated.
Sotomayor, a judge on the not-so-Supreme Court states that it is not right that the federal govenment define marriage. But the federal govenment has their nose in everything else. So what could s… Read full post »

So the ballad of Chris Dorner continues. Spawned by the media, it was inevitable to make the infamous cop killer legend, wait for it, dery. Walking in the footsteps of Mumia Abu Jamal, it is j… Read full post »
In my whole life, I have never watched the entire Grammy Award program. Who has that much free time. Even doing the DVR thing still involved nearly two hours that may have been better spent. Nonetheless, I enjoyed it. Now I am not a Grammies newbie. I've seen portions be… Read full post »
Would you date this man? Read on.
A former customer of Match.com is suing the popular online dating company because her "match" assaulted her after she stopped dating the man. She is insisting that the Match.com put forth a disclaimer. So here we g… Read full post »
While others look back and reflect on what happened in 2012, I prefer to look forward to what might happen in 2013. When one fantasizes, anything is possible. Perhaps this is how we will recall the fabulous year 2013:
2013 was a record year for hurricanes. We never made it beyond… Read full post »
Each year we pull out the same wonderful stories to share with family and friends, or maybe just to cheer ourselves. But most have a lesson to be learned, not only for the characters, but also for the reader. A review of my personal favorites leads me to… Read full post »
My Christmas memory involves the office where I worked before going to nursing school. The office personnel was entirely female, which in my experience, is never good. If that's not PC, sorry.

Sitting in our lunch area with two of my friends, we overheard one of our co-workers speaking to someone from another unit. He was telling that woman about a patient who seemed to be nice and "with it" til she went "all Aunt Jemima" on him.

Tis the season to be jolly and who else is right there to ruin it but the biggest, baddest bully of them all, the atheist. Talk about a hater with a lot of time on their hands. Any time any religious display is discovered, there the atheists are, being oh so… Read full post »
