Thai Time

Posted on | November 20, 2018 | No Comments

Like Thai food? If so, stop by Basil Garden in Palm City, Florida, where a Guatemalan chef and his Thai associate will serve you fare worthy of that Southeast Asian country.  They came to America from far distant parts of the globe, met, married, persevered and now own two restaurants in what can only be called an immigration success story.

The Eternal Turtle

Posted on | November 13, 2018 | No Comments

Let’s show a little respect for turtles that have lived for hundreds of millions of years … hundreds of times longer than we humans. That’s the advice of Carlo Rovelli, an acclaimed physicist whose book “Seven Brief Lessons on Physics” is addressed to readers who know little or nothing about physics but who have an advantage over turtles in that they are aware of their existence and can do something about it.

Caravan from Hell

Posted on | November 1, 2018 | 6 Comments

Whatever the degree of outside organizing and financing, the thousands of people trying to reach the United States are fleeing some of the most hellish conditions on earth, a violence equal to war zones that is not fit for life. The drug lords, financed by U.S. consumers, have taken over El Salvador and Honduras, not to mention Mexico, and it is they who pose this challenge to the U.S. border. Read more

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
