In The Spotlight

Politics

Presidential Election Revelation

As mentioned on numerous occasions, I am as non-partisan as it gets. Don’t care what party the candidate represents, only care that they are qualified and can make their case as a public servant. But I am VERY political… I do of course have a degree in Political Science, which, technically makes me an expert […]

Finding Religion

Don’t worry. I already found it. It’s not in the practice of religion, it’s in the study… Let me go on… A year ago, my cousin asked me, “What do you think of going to church?” My answer was, “I think going to church is great for some people… I”m not one of those people, […]

RAISING BOYS TO BE MEN

I absolutely despise the term MAN UP. Don’t know from where it came but would like to see it go back there. It’s sexist… its insensitive, it perpetuates misogyny. It’s basically saying you’re not being man enough. But what is man enough? Beating your wife? Getting into drunken bar brawls? Sexual conquests? I think it’s […]

The Scouts

I was a Cub Scout and a Boy Scout. A scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent. Still remember the oath I took… My sister was a Brownie, but, not a Girl Scout. Just didn’t embrace scouting the way me and my guy friends did. This was […]

No More NASA?

OKAY, I’m being overly dramatic. NASA is not actually going away, just the space program. But, that’s not clear in the way it’s being reported in the news. The news filter is clearly clogged. Important details are not mak...

The U. S. Open 2011

My sport of choice is Tennis. I love to play it… I love to watch it… I know how to score it, call penalties, teach it. I’m one of those people who has 6 racquets and takes 3 to the court when I play. I know I don...
