Protests, Police, Pandemic, And Politics: Enough Already

These topics are very important, but I've addressed them repeatedly and want to change the subject this week.  I expect you might feel the same.  I do want to acknowledge, though, that our current protests are historic, in that elected leaders are not allowing policemen and other "conservatives" to attack the demonstrators' right to free speech.  Our grandchildren are picking up the protest signs we dropped after Richard Nixon's 1968 election, and genuine reform in the criminal justice system may be within sight.  I hope so. Read More

Blue Re Florida Blue

Under our almost totally Republican officialdom, Florida government becomes more and more arbitrary, inefficient, and chaotic.  I hope that voters who put such unwarranted faith in buzz words – especially Jeb's "People First!" and Rick Scott's "Let's Get to Work!"– will rewind to the days of Lawton Chiles and Bob Graham, when accountability and transparency meant something.  It's not just that today's Tallahassee folks are inefficient:  it seems they deliberately aim their poor service at poor people. Read More

Homes, And Homing In Again

Thanks so much to those of you who told me that you were glad to see my return last week.  Of course I continue to miss Hubby terribly, and I know that I shall for a long time.  I also know, though, that he would want me to return to my writing life.  He supported it for so long that he deserves some return on his investment, even though it may be a widow's mite.  And I hope you will forgive me if I continue on themes closely related to him and our 54-year marriage.  Read More
