F YOU'VE NOT SEEN LAST NIGHT'S EPISODE of "MAD MEN", SPOILER
Last year, when "Mad Men" 's Don & Betty Draper's little girl, Sally, became so attached to Betty's father, the dottering, senile old grandpa(it was hinted that he might be stricken with what we would now label advanced Alzheimer'… Read full post »
WHITNEY HOUSTON, AND "I LOOK TO YOU".
Okay, I'm usually a kind person, and I always say kindness as an attribute is far under-rated as a positive trait to possess. But I admit my intentions for turning on "Good Morning America" on ABC this morning, were less than kind. The truth is,… Read full post »

One of my earliest memories is of watching Walter Cronkite, on CBS.
I recall picking up a newspaper in front of our house, when I was only about 4-and-a-half-years-old(in 1962), and seeing a photograph of a beautiful blond lady on the front page. I asked my Mom… Read full post »
So once again, I was called up for Jury Duty. An "x" appeared next to my name, which meant I was only on "stand-by" status. Which meant I was supposed to call to hear if my group(number 03) was selected to report. I did, and I was.

say you can't trade crayons for bombs.

It's almost here. Today, we all celebrate what would be the 80th Birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr....What am I doing today? I'm meditating, and praying for a several hours today, for world peace, and for personal guidance--in how I may better serve that goal, in some way, in this… Read full post »
Why is it that the word "war" can be used as a noun, and also as a verb--as in, "war is terrible.", and "They war with each other, all the time.", and the word peace, is never used as a verb?I think it's because we accept war as a reality, and… Read full post »
I know that we are being encouraged to vote early. In fact, I myself sent out an e-mail urging everyone to do so. Being an Obama supporter, in a very red-state (Georgia), voting early is supposed to be a great thing, something that will make it a shorter line on Election… Read full post »
Dear Senator Barack Obama,
Please Listen To Me!
You've got everything going for you, EXCEPT this persistent belief that you're not strong on foreign policy, tough enough on terrorists. So, when you select a running-mate, you'll need someone whose credentials are stellar in that regard.
