A Mother’s Lessons on Vaccine Advocacy Not Hesitancy

Today’s epidemic of COVID vaccine hesitancy and resistance among mothers would be something totally baffling to my own mid-century mother. “Hesitant about what?” I imagine her asking incredulously? “Saving their child’s life? Resistant to saving neighbors? Who ever heard of

Fly away Marjorie Taylor Green, Fly Away

Happy New Year 2022-Will We Make It After All?

How I long to shout “Happy New Year” and really mean it. Wear a silly hat and blow a cheezy plastic horn at midnight and truly believe its message! Exchange that greeting with friends without a hint of irony! Last

And Just Like That…It’s COVID 2020

And just like that…it’s 2020. Not only are we still talking about Donald Trump and Roger Stone’s smarmy face is still assaulting us on the news, but like a bad re-run of a horror show we have seen before, or

A Fractured State of Our Union

After the calamitous events of 2020 can we piece the country back together even as the state of our union is being torn to shreds? The perpetuation of myths, lies, and fears both old & new is ripping our nation

Personal Sacrifice for the Greater Good is the American Way

If a segment of nobody-tells-me-what-to-do-keep-the-government-off-my-back American’s still whinge at the thought of a mask mandate while shedding crocodile tears about the discomfort, inconvenience, and infringement on their freedom, how in hell would these self-serving “patriots” feel if suddenly Uncle Sam

Andrew Cuomo’s Fast Fall From Grace

                      Guess it’s time to toss the  Cuomosexual T-shirt in the trash. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo once the toast of a pandemic-riddled town is now himself toast. President Biden

When COVID, Chaos, and Cognitive Decline Collide…Who Could Imagine That

I’ve always had a fertile imagination. For nearly six decades I’ve imagined my life unfolding in the form of a TV show always playing to an imaginary studio audience and their reactions. Its genesis was the late-night imaginings of a

RIP Mary Ann from Gilligan’s Island  

In a last cruel act of 2020, COVID-19 has struck Gilligan’s Island. Is nowhere on earth safe from this awful virus? After being shipwrecked on this uncharted island since 1964, Mary Ann Summers, the sunny farm girl from Winfield, Kansas
