Time for a Women’s Strike

Women have been aware of their secret weapon for centuries. But they haven’t been mad enough to use it. Until now. The hidden truth is that women do the bulk of the world’s work. And provide the bulk of men’s entertainment. They are expected to do all the things Peggy Lee sang about (but I […]

Change You Just Can’t Stop

Some changes are forced, some are natural. And nothing can stop natural change when the time is ripe. Who would have thought, for example, that our local power company would go solar? But there it was on TV last night, acres of solar panels belonging to dear, ol’ Lakeland Electric, producing power for us folks over […]

Invade Mexico? Again?

Donald Trump’s  threat to send troops into Mexico is an eerie reminder of the bullying tactics America once got away with. And it shows the kind of world a Trump-Putin alliance might produce. Vladimir Putin has invaded neighboring states with impunity. I wonder whether that has anything to do with Trump’s aggressive behavior toward Mexico. Could Trump […]

Incoherent and Disoriented

I know the world seems to be spinning into the abyss as Trump spreads chaos (deliberately?) from his vantage point in the White House. But it’s impossible for me to make sense of it today as I fight my own personal battle for survival. At about 3 a.m., I woke up to find myself surrounded by strange […]

The gulf between blue America and red America is widening as Americans grow increasingly hostile to one another. And individual states are becoming more eager to go their own way. I just read about a poll showing […]

Innovations from the Course

  Whether you ever venture on to a course or not, the golf equipment show in Orlando is spotlighting innovations you might find, well… interesting. Not that we golfers need anything more to buck us up. After all, Tiger is back on the links today in San Diego, and even if he succumbs to ring rust from […]

Two Years to Get Ready

  You could collapse in despair as Trump and his Republican minions shred the Constitution and turn back the clock. Or you could start preparing for battle, knowing “we the people” get to have our say again in a couple of years. As  the bigots and xenophobes impose their will on the rest of us, […]

“Decency” Under Attack

  Ideas I have accepted unquestionably all my life are under attack. Not just in America but worldwide, “the people” seem to be rejecting my concepts of good and evil. In America “the people” have chosen to follow Trump and the Republicans. And our new rulers are leaving no doubt about their path forward. It’s going to be […]
