Praying for Syria

It’s hard to even comment about Syria, let alone decide what’s best to do. There are way too many contradictory reports for a common mortal to figure out who was behind last week’s obscene attack, and even when the UN concludes (if ever) who the...

Spring into action

This blog is not about civil unions, but a couple of weeks ago I wrote one about the subject, in which I vehemently argued against the idea of having a referendum about this non-issue. My argument was based on the strong belief that minority...

Always Out Bullies

My 84 year old hero

Let me tell you a little story about an 84 woman who just became my number one hero. Edith Windsor is no spring chicken, as I said she’s 84 years old, and through no fault of her own, all her life she had to battle untold prejudice, injustice, and...

Dads That Rock

There are different kinds of dads in this world and there’s no arguing that some are good and others are bad. Then you have nice ones, rude ones, strict ones, and embarrassing ones, those you call in any crisis, dads who will paint your house,...
