Weekend

Two days left in my vacation.  It has been a particularly good one.  I still have to go through my books – probably tomorrow.  Today will be spent running errands and hanging out with the kid.  Tomorrow I hope to go through my books and work on writing.  This is one of my better vacations.  … Continue reading Weekend

Journalistic Integrity

In our media these days we have a huge number of people calling themselves journalists.  However, I question their use of this title.  To me a journalist is someone who reports the information without bias, just giving details and information.  Too often these days we see people commenting on the news rather than reporting it.  … Continue reading Journalistic Integrity

Core Beliefs

With all the posts on politics I've offended some people.  Some of these people were long standing friends.  I'm not sure whether they will continue to be my friend after this bout of political sharing.  In every day life, I'm pretty middle of the road.  I'll vote for the candidate and how he or she … Continue reading Core Beliefs

Go Democrats!!!

I'm not a political person - yes I know I've posted so much this week on the issues going on but under normal circumstances I'm just not.  I don't vote by party lines.  I don't discuss my votes.  I vote - every election.  I despair that our politician will ever get what is needed for … Continue reading Go Democrats!!!
