August 20, 2013

Al Jazeera America will be launched on TV in the US today at 3:00 PM EDT.  Many of us have waited for this moment and have written our support of this day.  But when I called to have my Dish service upgraded so that I could receive it, I was told by the young man […]

Comments Off on Lance Armstrong Has Sullied The Integrity of the US Itself

We must never forget that Lance Armstrong represented the United States in two major arenas:  the Olympics and the Tour de France.  But he forgot that.  He was out for personal gain and glory.  Aside from music, sports is one of the biggest human exercises that unites the globe. Perhaps character building and education in […]

A decade or more ago funerals and burials in my family became “trendy.”  A cousin whose mother had died, kept her ashes in his front hall closet. One day I went to him and said “I wish you would find a resting place for your mother.  People will begin to ask why I address the […]
