For the First Time, I’m Afraid of a Virus

This evening, while texting with a friend, I told him I usually don’t get too worried about the flu and such, but the Coronavirus has me worried. I am afraid of this virus and I’m not sure why. I’ve been trying to figure out what is different about the Coronavirus than Ebola, Swine Flu or… Continue reading For the First Time, I’m Afraid of a Virus

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

A Day in the Life of the 99%

This is a mash-up from the past few months. Time to get up for work. We roll out of our nice comfy bed to get ready. Thousands of children in U.S. detention camps are trying to stay warm under inhumane conditions. It doesn’t matter, they aren’t our children. As we shower, Rudy Giuliani is working… Continue reading A Day in the Life of the 99%

It is a FBI director who… Continue reading The Deplorable Among Us Have Won

When the President carte blanched people not to answer lawful subpoenas and Republicans did nothing, we the people did nothing, and the courts… Continue reading The United States Constitution Experiment is Failing

We’ve Lost Our Commonality and Natural Connections

Before I begin, here are some factors in my lens of the world: gay, husband, father of several adopted children, progressive liberal, fiscal moderate, believe refugees and immigrants are good for the U.S., educator, believe in family, think children need to be told no and awards/trophies should be earned, women have the right to control… Continue reading We’ve Lost Our Commonality and Natural Connections

This Isn’t Who We Are!

We often hear, “This isn’t who we are!” The truth is, this is who we are, who we are now, and who we have become. The good news is, we have a choice of whether this who we remain. Votes matter. Vote! And vote for Democrats unless this is how you want US to remain.… Continue reading This Isn’t Who We Are!
