Too often I ask myself, where are our elected Democrats? We have a pandemic, massive protests, and rioting occurring right now in our nation! Now is the time to be with the people—not speaking to us on TV, not tweeting, not Zooming, not doing robocalls or e-mails. We need you with we the people.

Tomorrow I make first trek away from home base in over two months. I’m both wildly excited to see some new scenery and stimulation, and wildly anxious about being out of my safe zone for the day. Where am I going you might ask? I’m taking a road trip to Ohio to bring some things… Continue reading Off to the Wild Unknown

This evening, after getting caught up with The Masked Singer (yes, I know, but what you going to do?), I watched Saturday Night Live Home Edition. It was better than I thought it would be! The cast was creative in garnering props from around their homes (RGB skit was the brilliant in this aspect; the… Continue reading Saturday Night “Live” in the Age of COVID-19
Everyday we hear of governors going on TV and stating all the things the Federal government isn’t doing. Many also let us know, because there is no national leadership, they are each bidding against one another for needed supplies to treat COVID-19. There is a National Governors Association to which I believe all governors belong… Continue reading Nationally, We are Leaderless. Why Aren’t Governors Uniting?
