A Plethera of Curiosity

COVID-19 has come into my inner circle. I found out a friend is showing symptoms, but won’t know the results of the test until Sunday or Monday. Then I found out someone I had worked closely with has a loved one on her way to the emergency room showing COVID-19 symptoms. All within an hour… Continue reading A Plethera of Curiosity

I am a Worrier

If it is true one’s worries are what turns one’s hair gray, you’d see I worry, a lot. I think it is both hereditary and because I’m an educator (teachers never stop thinking about their students, even 20 years after they had them in class). My current worries, which are mainly due, but not entirely,… Continue reading I am a Worrier

We Can Walk and Chew Gum at the Same Time

Main stream media, we, the consumer of your news, can walk and chew gum at the same time! In case you needed reminding. I know the Coronavirus has us all on edge. This is the biggest story you will most likely ever cover. I get that, and there is a whole lot of other things… Continue reading We Can Walk and Chew Gum at the Same Time

Mr. Trump is a National Health Hazard

Every time 45 is broadcast on national TV, he does harm to the economy, to the Office of the President, and to the health of millions of Americans. The media MUST stop broadcasting him live. If he actually says something of import, it can always be played later as a clip. We should only be… Continue reading Mr. Trump is a National Health Hazard

Dear Mayor Bloomberg,

I keep hearing on TV you seem to be what we call filthy rich where I grew up. I keep hearing you spent over $500,000,000 on ads to promote your run for president. I keep hearing you will spend some of your billions of dollars to help the Democratic nominee for president (and hopefully for… Continue reading Dear Mayor Bloomberg,

“On Tyranny: Beware the One-Party State” (Snyder)

I am purposefully skipping Chapter 2 of On Tyranny for the moment as I have a little more research to do before posting about it. Chapter 3 is Beware the One-Party State. If you are paying attention and are woke, you will see we are quickly moving in this direction. Yes, we currently have two… Continue reading “On Tyranny: Beware the One-Party State” (Snyder)

Where Have All Our Leaders Gone? Repost

After the events of today with Devin Nunes and the apparent installation of a Trumpist loyalist as the Director of National Intelligence, meaning another part of our government is now compromised, I felt an old post is even more relevant today than it was just a few months ago. Where Have All Our Leaders Gone?

“On Tyranny: Do Not Obey In Advance” (Snyder)

I bought the book, On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century (Timothy Snyder) right after Trump was elected. It seemed appropriate at the time. Now it seems imperative, we all own, and read, a copy. In transparency, I had not begun to read the book until Mr. Snyder was a guest on the Rachel… Continue reading “On Tyranny: Do Not Obey In Advance” (Snyder)

We used to watch out for one another

Does art imitate life or life imitate art? One of our children is in color guard and we are DCI fans. Over the past couple of years it has been interesting to see the shift in the types of shows these groups do. Some of the shows involve what appears to be misogynistic tendencies, violence… Continue reading We used to watch out for one another
