Meeting Robert Kennedy

(This is the second installment in a series.)

It has been nearly 50 years since U.S. Sen. Robert F. Kennedy was fatally shot in the Hotel Ambassador in Los Angeles on June 5, 1968. I  have often thought how my life might have changed if the Palestinian assassin Sirhan Sirhan had not killed an outstanding statesman who I  was sure would have been elected president of the United States ...

Charlottesville Nazi March: Now With Facts

The Virginia State Police badly failed in its role to prevent violence and protect citizens at the Nazi rally in Charlottesville, Va., last August.

That is the key takeaway from a 200-page report on the rally released to the public Dec. 1. The report was written by Timothy J. Heaphy, a United States attorney hired by the city to investigate the debacle that ensued when the Nazi rally was met ...

Given the choice between being at home and dealing with my own piles or going to Pleasantville and sorting out Mrs. Martin’s closet, I will chose Mrs. Martin and her closet every single time.

Already knowing the two dominant brands in this ...

The Eyebrows Have It

As I perused the latest fashion magazine, I noticed something about the models.

They all had big eyebrows. Big, perfect eyebrows. Big, sculpted, perfectly groomed and arched eyebrows.

And I did not.

Not that I’m comparing myself to a model, because that would be impossible on just so many levels. I could not make myself 6 feet tall, 115 pounds and willowy without a body transplant.
