Rand Paul – Our Next Vice-President?

Posted on | October 23, 2018 | No Comments

Senator Rand Paul has been spending quite a bit of time at the White House these days. He’s working with President Trump on a variety of issues, but he also may remind the chief executive of his campaign pledge to reduce the number of current U.S. wars, a main concern of the libertarian senator. If he is convincing enough, say some observers, he might even find his way on to the Republican ticket as Vice President. Read more

Murder Capital Again?

Posted on | October 10, 2018 | No Comments

In early October, five police investigators were eating dinner at a local restaurant in the Mexican border town Juarez when a gang burst in, shooting. Their aim was off. The police were wounded but survived. Yet all was not as it seemed. A week before, the assailants had set up banners in Juarez accusing the police of working for a rival drug cartel. In fact, in September, four police had been ambushed and killed in nearby mountains for apparently the same reason. In Mexico these days, you never know. Cartels reign supreme. The law is lawless.

The Other America

Posted on | September 23, 2018 | No Comments

While the nation’s capital seems bogged down in rancor, inaction, spying and war making, the rest of America presents a different picture. There democracy apparently thrives, local communities are on the rebound thanks to bipartisan practicality, and there’s an enlargement of hope in contrast to the bleak national outlook. Such are the findings of a book “Our Towns,” by James and Deborah Fallows (pictured below), who spent four years hopping from one locale to the next in a small, two-seat airplane undeterred by terrain or weather.

Our Super Secret Spy State

Posted on | September 13, 2018 | No Comments

Who’s the most quoted writer today? No, it’s not Shakespeare. He has been surpassed by a more recent Englishman, George Orwell, whose novel “1984” (written in 1949) depicts an all-knowing, all-commanding spy state that has reached fruition in, of all places, the United States of America. So the adjective “Orwellian” is commonly heard these days, a tribute to an author who uncannily foretold the future. His Big Brother is here and watching. Read more

The Real Man – John Wayne

Posted on | August 29, 2018 | 1 Comment

Who’s the ideal man? How about John Wayne, hero of 83 Western films, who tamed the expanding West, stronger and taller than the next guy and faster on the draw, scourge of Indian and outlaw alike, winning or losing with a beguiling smile, protective of women and no womanizer. Who could ask for more? Read more

Florida Under Attack – Algae Invasion

Posted on | August 23, 2018 | No Comments

Red or green? Take your pick. Both colors of algae are devastating south Florida, infesting beaches on the Gulf coast, invading rivers and canals on the Atlantic side. All kinds of sea life are dying and humans are in jeopardy. Many businesses have closed, reservations canceled. The plague beginning in the spring could last well into November. Read more

Freedom for Dogs and Others

Posted on | August 15, 2018 | No Comments

Glenn Greenwald usually writes about the encroachments of the deep state on American freedom. But he’s also concerned about freedom from pain and desertion for dogs. He and his partner David Miranda rescue strays from the streets of Rio de Janeiro, where they live. They have a couple of dozen of their own and put many others up for adoption, mainly in the U.S. Read more
