Civil Tone Please?

I write a blog and I have to admit it can be pretty negative. I am sixty years old and trying to do things the "nice" way seems to be a futile venture. Admittedly a more sharply worded posture of me against the world might be a losing proposition. No one likes a negative nellie … Continue reading Civil Tone Please?

Time is Not a Healer

This is an old wives tale, I can assure you. Only those who have suffered immense levels of unforgiving pain can tell you this. Through the maze of memories, nightmares and unknowns some are lucky, but time is more of a curse than a healer. As you live year after year, time only compounds the … Continue reading Time is Not a Healer

Where Is the Justice?

Why do victims of violence have to get over stuff? Why are those who perpetrate violence getting away with it? This is the essence of my post today.

Once read, maybe you will arrive at the conclusion many have; that they are in poor taste, a mistake, whatever... I have a different point of view here. As a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, … Continue reading Tweets, James Gunn and the Power of Popularity

Grid Girls…GONE!

This week the F1 series of auto racing announced the following: “While the practice of employing grid girls has been a staple of Formula 1 Grands Prix for decades, we feel this custom does not resonate with our brand values and clearly is at odds with modern-day societal norms. We don’t believe the practice is … Continue reading Grid Girls…GONE!

The True Problem

The true problem isn't Donald Trump, it isn't all the perpetrators of sexual misconduct, it's not our overcrowded prisons; it isn't even the issue of obesity in America. No, those aren't the actual problems plaguing our society, it is the ignorant ways in which we deal with them. Lets take each of these briefly, one … Continue reading The True Problem
