In Memory of Anthony Lewis

(16) Comments | Posted March 26, 2013 | 2:54 PM

Anthony Lewis is dead. I ate his columns in the International Herald Tribune. Devoured them. Cherished them. The sensibility from which those words of his flowed filled me with hope. Fueled me with information.

On the death of Yeats W. H. Auden wrote "In Memory of W. B....

Is Life Insurance an 'Entitlement?'

(497) Comments | Posted December 1, 2012 | 1:23 PM

If you don't think it is, then how in the devil did the Republicans manage to persuade the Democrats that Social Security is! If you want to know what the 'Real Entitlements' are, read Carl Gibson's November 30th perspective in Reader Supported News: "Why Democrats Should Embrace 'Entitlement...

You're Breaking My Heart Mr. President

Dear Mister President,

You're breaking my heart. Casting it asunder with the solutions you come up with to answer the problems that confront you. You do not discuss 'family planning' options with a rapist! You stand up and do your best to beat him off. Do not...

Get Rid of Morning Joe

(239) Comments | Posted May 2, 2010 | 11:42 AM

Are the programmers at MSNBC nuts? They give us refreshing afternoons with Chris and Ed, put us to bed with the clarifying sensibilities of Rachel and Keith and then, idiotically, wake us up with Mr. Small Mouth.

Who is this idiot? Why is he there? He can't even listen....

It must finally be clear to us all that the stumbling block to successful health/disease care reform has been definitively reduced to two words. They're not "public option" or "single payer", they're "Max Baucus".

He was not elected to eliminate the Democratic Majority in the Finance Committee, but that's what...

Obama for President

I didn't see the airing of it, but apparently a certain news network dug up old footage of me and pasted it together with words I'd...

Obama, Stay the Course!

Read this New York Times Op-Ed piece! It clearly and concisely tells you what's up.

If you can't open it, I've added it below. The DNC's 'Terry McAuliffe mind-set' ruined the campaigns of Gore, Kerry and Senator Clinton and now the legions of McAuliffites who have surrounded...

Hillary's Popular Vote Notion only 'Popular' with the Punditocracy

(1125) Comments | Posted May 29, 2008 | 3:39 PM

It is incomprehensible to me that Mrs. Clinton can seriously be touting the notion, with the support of the punditocracy of CNN and Fox, that she is leading in the popular vote and should therefore be seriously considered as the most electable candidate in the November election.
