Where's My STUFF?

According to the loser Mr. Romney, I voted for Obama to get free stuff. What stuff? Damn, was that the line I passed by at McCormick? I thought that was the coat check. According to Jon Stewart and “The Daily Show” we got free stuff?I know, he’s not a real journo. And guess what, we... Read more »

Senator-elect Elizabeth Warren

She..who headlined at Chicago Humanities Festival..gets the room of Obama supporters cheering for her line to have the rich pay their share. Meanwhile Romney’s accountant sending more to Switzerland. Women running for Senate did very well indeed, despite the MCPs.

October 2017, or Down the Rabbit Hole With Revolution 3.0

Preview of Coming Attractions It was back in 2012 when I heard the idea to end taxes for business. Who’d a thunk–they’d do it? Up early this morning–lark that I am–I look out my window to see more sink holes on Michigan Avenue–now a toll road–apparently there isn’t enough cash to longer cover the repairs... Read more »

Representative anti-Contraception

Given Mitt Romney and His anointed VP Paul Ryan’s desire to end hormonal birth control availability, a.k.a. The Pill, why would my sisters vote for them? Her name was Molly. We’d heard about her in 1983 long before we met her. She was already infamous. The word in the expatriate community was out. “There’s and... Read more »

Church of the Holy Gun (sponsored by the NRA)

Sitting in the Globe Theatre in London UK to see Richard III, it crossed my mind. What if we were in an American theater? Bang bang, and many of us would die. The first thing to cross my mind was to throw myself on my mid30 year old daughter. For the bench, backless seating of... Read more »

How to Marry a Billionaire?

Once upon a time, in a pre-Mad Men America, a little girl with wispy blond hair and blue plastic framed glasses was in love with Walt Disney. Not the Walt Disney corporation; with the product–Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck–the usual suspects. A card-carrying member of the Mickey Mouse Club wearing her treasured pair of Mickey Mouse...

Bully Boy Mitt

It was only a small bit of news, the fact that Mitt Romney had his aides disrupt an Obama event with rude screaming and shouting, and blowing of the always irritating vuvezelas. Huh, I thought. Just like Mitt the Adolescent Bully who doesn’t like someone’s hair (so much for his touted belief in freedom), so... Read more »

Reality is Absurd

First, Mitt Romney says in the same serious tone he’d discuss gold tablets found in New York State that “Corporations are people, my friend.” Given the Supremes (SCOTUS) said that corporations have human free speech right–I guess. Next, Sesame Street must deny that Bert and Ernie are a same sex couple. Surprise, they are also not... Read more »

    I was an accidental expatriate; love and marriage led me to it. One day I was a bandy-legged kid sitting atop my dogwood tree looking out of my small backyard world in 1950s New Jersey, wanting to move somewhere--anywhere, different. Next thing I knew my father had accepted a job in Houston TX. I was ecstatic, it was a foreign land in 1961 America. After high school graduation, my parents’ gave me a matched set of fawn-colored hardsided American Tourister luggage. Taking the hint, I went to college; well four colleges in five years--it was the 60s after all. Meeting a young hirsute anti-war, soon-to-be-Peace Corps volunteer, I fell in love. After finishing up college coursework for my degree, but before I even walking a graduation stage, I grabbed the paper airline ticket my boyfriend had sent me, my brand-new passport, and was off to the airport and Lima, Peru.
