I’m back to my version of live blogging. While I was away the world went on. Did it ever! I’d like to briefly reflect on a few of the events that effect us all and finish with a personal experience.
Today is a holiday for those of my ethnic background, so I’ll make this a relatively short and to the point article. Continue reading It’s Simple, Really
The week just ended featured three assaults on the First Amendment. Today I want to cover the least publicized one and hopefully will get to the others in the coming days.
Today is Veterans’ Day in America and for me, in particular, it is time to do a “clean up” article. As I sat down to write this I though what an appropriate juxtaposition of circumstances. In too many cases we asked our veterans to clean up our messes and I want to clean up the backlog of notes I have on things I have neglected to cover.
Today’s article presents a challenge. On a national holiday I normally publish an article dedicated to it. On a Sunday I normally publish an article predicated on the biggest political story of the week just ended. Today is Independence Day or The Fourth of July as we commonly call it. If I had to sum up the biggest political story of the week just ended in a single word it would be: Thursday. Even then I’d be incomplete, too much popped that day. However, I think I can blend the two while covering some of Thursday.
