Roe v Wade Overturned -I Can’t Breathe

This morning we turned the clock back fifty years because of three stolen Scotus seats. Because some people “Just didn’t Like Hillary!” This day will live in infamy. We are headed back to the dark ages, of dark alleys and

Policemen Don’t Always Keep Us Safe

In school I learned early on the policeman is our friend. All our schoolbooks told us so. He is always there to help you. He keeps us safe. He keeps children safe. He keeps children safe in school. How Do

Before They Were Fathers – A Post Father’s Day Post

It was 1937 and these two dapper gentlemen on opposite sides of the globe were young men with their lives just starting out. Being a father was far from either man’s mind. Both Jews, their lives would take extraordinarily different

A Daughter of Watergate Junkies Remembers Lessons For Today

Its déjà vu all over again. Gas prices are through the roof. Roe v Wade is a hot-button topic. White male entitlement is in decline dividing a country. Out-of-control inflation and outsourced jobs strain the economy. The loss of faith

I hate to say this on Flag Day but in recent years I’ve found myself fickle about the American flag. It wasn’t always so. For decades, with hand over heart, I dutifully pledged allegiance to the stars and stripes as

Goodbye Phone Booths

It’s the end of an era as phonebooths vanish from our landscape. Poor Clark Kent will have to find another changing room to morph into Superman. Those iconic glass and aluminum sanctuaries of privacy that once stood on nearly every
