Feeding Grand Bahama

Posted on | October 11, 2019 | No Comments

Hurricane Dorian tore apart much of Grand Bahama, but amid the destruction a vital community spirit has arisen that seems to overcome ruined homes and businesses. Much of this is apparent in the World Central Kitchen that provides some 12 thousand meals a day to needy island residents – not routine fare but the inspirations of gourmet chef Jose Andres, who wants his non-paying customers to eat well even if they dine in the forlorn shells of their former homes. The mission of this one kitchen is to substitute for the many destroyed. Read more

Why War?

Posted on | September 25, 2019 | No Comments

How much U.S. intervention overseas is too much? The results to date are not encouraging with more chaos in Iraq, Syria, Libya and Afghanistan in the aftermath of U.S. military involvement. Now the attack on Saudi oil facilities in the bitter four-year war with Yemen threatens to embroil the U.S. in yet another questionable intervention. Read more

Here Comes Election 2020

Posted on | August 27, 2019 | 1 Comment

With a bang in the case of President Trump, who has plowed with his usual gusto into the nervous topic of anti-Semitism by attacking the two young Muslim U.S. Congresswomen and accusing Jews who vote Democratic as being anti-Semitic. This arouses the usual name calling, but Trump makes a political calculation. If he can knock off a chunk of the Jewish vote, which is heavily Democratic, he might prevail in some close states that assure his reelection. Read more

El Chapo and Epstein Share a Prison

Jeffrey Epstein was jailed three doors away from drug king El Chapo’s cell in the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City. But El Chapo, famed for two escapes from maximum prisons in Mexico – one by laundry cart, the other by tunnel – was unable to break away this time and was transferred to serve a life sentence in Colorado.

More Journalists Killed in Mexico

Posted on | August 8, 2019 | No Comments

Compared to the massacres in Ohio and Texas, it seems rather insignificant: three more Mexican journalists murdered in a week. Yet the mass killings of journalists in Mexico – some 100 since 2000 and ten so far this year – have been largely ignored by U.S. Government and media as if to say, they’re only Mexicans, what do you expect? That they’re right next door across our border doesn’t seem to matter. Read more

Cleopatra: Supreme Seductress and Creator of an Empire

Posted on | August 1, 2019 | No Comments

Cleopatra is almost as well known today as she was when alive in the 50’s BC – the glamorous subject of prose and poetry, drama and film. A goddess of love, we are told, who seduced two of the Roman greats – Julius Caesar and Mark Antony – overlooking perhaps her profound influence on them and the politics of the time and to come.

Julius Caesar in Need Today, a Supreme Strategist with a Clear Purpose

Posted on | July 17, 2019 | No Comments

Caesar had a plan and a goal that coincided with his own quest for personal glory: he would conquer Gaul (present-day France along with parts of neighboring countries) for the expansion and security of Rome in 50 BC. That he accomplished in nine years of well executed battles and deft negotiations among warring tribes. It was a conflict on many fronts which required his constant attention. Read more
