America, Love It Or Leave It!

America, Love It Or Leave It!
Did you see that celebrity this weekend who disrespected our flag, our country, our soldiers and our President? It’s disgusting.  This is America, the greatest country in the world.  Land of the free.  Home of the brave.  And this guy acts like someone who isn’t proud of America.  Isn’t proud to be a citizen.  Thinks...

If Donald Trump Were Black

If Donald Trump Were Black
One of the things I have admired about President and Michelle Obama has been how they’ve handled the pressure of being the Jackie Robinson of the White House.  When Robinson broke the MLB color barrier, if he acted like his opponents and some of the racist fans he encountered, it would have harmed the efforts...

How To Get On A Game Show

I recently got an unsolicited e-mail from a PR person who wanted her client to be able to do a guest blog post here. While I do consider these, I don’t when they are commercial and I felt that’s what this one was. What the blogger wanted to talk about was how he thinks the... Read more »

Do You Know Anyone Going To The Olympics?

Do You Know Anyone Going To The Olympics?
It seems like just yesterday that the City of Chicago was blessed with not having to host the Olympics. What a mess and waste of tax dollars that would have been. The Rio Olympics are starting this week and so far they seem to be a dumpster fire. There were supposed to 3,400 people for... Read more »

Ten Tips For Those About To Start Law School

Ten Tips For Those About To Start Law School
Later this month, tens of thousands of prospective lawyers will start law school throughout the country.  In Chicago alone we probably have more than 1,500, many of whom are moving to the City as I write this, getting apartments and probably freaking out a bit, especially if they’ve never been in the work force and...
