Why Vote for Democrats?

It is frequently said that all politics is local, but elections around the country this year are challenging that notion. Democratic candidates running in typically Republican-held districts have been attempting to sidestep President Trump’s controversial comments and are focusing, instead, on his failed policies. Many believe that national issues—ever present on the voter’s ...

Believe in Something

Colin Kaepernick, a tall, lean, biracial athlete, is the most polarizing symbol of racial injustice in American sports today. Scorned by some, but appreciated by many, Kaepernick is being called “the Muhammad Ali of his generation.” 

Ali, you may remember, is considered an American hero, not only for his tremendous achievements in the world of boxing and his status as a World ...

I Never Met a Musical Like Meta-Musical ‘Urinetown’

On the face of it, the conceit behind award-winning stage musical “Urinetown” seems absurd: Citizens are required to pay for the privilege of relieving themselves at public urinals.

To baby boomers, charging people to use public restrooms is neither absurd nor unthinkable. True, there were no coin-operated urinals when we were young, but there were stalls that required a dime to be ...

If I don’t believe my “Two Kinds of People” conceit as ...

Do or Diet

Most people I know gain weight over the winter. Just like polar bears, they eat for warmth and hide their weight under a layer of fur or, in this case, velour tracksuits. But I’m different (so what else is new?). I tend to gain all my weight during the summer when we travel, and go to lots of barbecues and picnics, and drink ginormous, high-calorie slushy drinks to cool off.

By the time ...

Making the Breast of a Bad Situation

The day started like any other. I showered, got dressed, walked the dog, and then headed over to the local coffee shop to get a beverage.

But as I waited on line to give my order, Satan suddenly stabbed me in the back. Or rather, the boob. I had bent over to retrieve something I dropped on the floor, when one of the underwires suddenly burst out the material like a ninja warrior, spearing me ...
