I’d like to take this opportunity to thank each of you for your emails, support and encouragement over the last year. I hope 2012 brings you hours and hours of good times with your family and friends. I hope you find love when you need it the most and excitement over the simple things in […]
I recently wrote a short piece about the Fisker automobile – being backed by our government’s $529,000 loan guarantees – in Down the Drain – A Prediction. Well, it looks like there’s already a problem with this $103,000 luxury car. All 239 cars have been recalled because of a potential fire hazard. There are recalls […]
Earlier in the year I wrote an article entitled “Good Christian Bitches:” High Concept/Low Blow about a new television series. The series is based on a book by Kim Gatlin. While the name may be acceptable as a book title, I didn’t get why the ABC network would use the original name which, to me, […]
I love the way Jay Carney has to read, not once but twice, his answer to the question why the First Lady and her two daughters couldn’t wait for the President to fly all together to Hawaii rather than taking two jets costing the taxpayers a load of money. Why? Because it’s not their money! […]
Well, the nanny state is alive and well – at least in the hearts of Democrat Senators Frank Lautenberg, Dick Durbin, Sherrod Brown and Jeff Merkley.

Wishing you and your loved ones a very Blessed and Merry Christmas.

I don’t know about you, but it still bothers me to have to listen to people on their cell phones and have to see lighted phones in dark theatres while people text while a performance is going on. I think it’s rude and I’m not interested in hearing other people’s conversations although many seem to […]
Happy Hanukkah to everyone celebrating on this first night and for all eight nights of the Festival of Lights!
