Thanks for the Invite, President Obama

(21) Comments | Posted June 16, 2011 | 11:58 AM

Today I got an e-mail from asking me to donate $5 or more to President Obama's campaign. With my donation, I'd be eligible to win a ticket to dinner with him as one of four lucky "supporters." He said he wanted my stories and ideas and invited me to...

Slide Over, Sphinx!

OK, I'm not a historian or a scholar -- what I know about Egypt could fit on Sarah Palin's "palmeprompter" -- but I do know that an overwhelming feeling of awe fills my heart when watching the massive throngs of courageous humanity in the streets of its cities.

MLK, the DoD and the Good Samaritan

I'd seen the headlines but simply didn't want to read the articles. You know the ones I mean? Where the Defense Department's general counsel claims that Martin Luther King would have "understood" our need to invade and occupy other people's countries, terrorize their citizens, and kill their children? What better...

"Just Pick Up a Paper!" -- Another Reason to Thank WikiLeaks

(21) Comments | Posted January 7, 2011 | 2:10 PM

At this point, anyone who really wants to read the news online knows not to rely entirely on any of our own nation's network's sites (though to give credit where it's due -- if you're still interested in the debate over President Obama's place of birth and have some doubt...

New Year's Revolutions

(29) Comments | Posted December 31, 2010 | 1:59 AM

No, I didn't mistype and I'm not talking about overthrowing the government (though I probably shouldn't dwell on that particular thought too long.) I'm simply saying that instead of making resolutions this year, let's revolve a bit, and make a couple of turns that aren't simply personal resolutions. We can...

Endangering Lives? Not Wikileaks!

(20) Comments | Posted December 16, 2010 | 12:21 PM

I guess it's understandable that so many Americans think that Julian Assange has committed a crime since according to a recent study , 63% of Fox news viewers still think that President Obama wasn't born in the United States. But the fact of the matter is, unless he's...

WikiLeaks, War Criminals and the Kardashians

Is it just me, or do the supermarket tabloids bother anyone else out there? I don't want to read them, but they're the only thing to look at when I'm waiting in the check-out line (other than the chocolate which I really do want to look at but have to...

A New Dress or a Pair of Legs -- Decisions, Decisions

(3) Comments | Posted December 6, 2010 | 1:55 PM

OK, I'll admit it. I subscribed to a glossy magazine filled with local LA food, fashion and "fun." It was actually a $5 deal on Amazon and, being relatively new to Los Angeles, I thought it might be fun to see what's around and help me a bit in navigating...

Profile Away!

(16) Comments | Posted December 6, 2010 | 11:05 AM

Wow! Sarah Palin's amazing! As another major holiday travel season approaches with the whole TSA / body scanning / "junk" fiasco still on our minds, Sarah's Twittered the solution!

"Profile away".

It's so simple. (And oh-so-reminiscent of that environmentally-conscientious "Drill baby, drill.")

I mean, just the other day...
