“You people!” is symptomatic of something that none of us want to admit…

May 30, 2009 imho is just a polite way to say I know you don't give a hoot what I think but I'm going to say it anyway

Tweet (I promise. This is going to be the final rant from me. There is a bit OCD in my personality, and sometimes things just bother me and I cannot let go. Most of the time these are “trivial” by most people’s measure. But are they REALLY trivial? Perhaps they are only trivial because you […]

“No, Newt, You’re the Racist” Thank goodness someone more elequont wrote this rebuttal…

May 29, 2009 imho is just a polite way to say I know you don't give a hoot what I think but I'm going to say it anyway

Tweet to the charge by some Republicans against the Supreme Court Nominee, Sonia Sotomayor, as being a racist against the white people, and specifically, white male people.

May 22, 2009 no manual for parenting

Tweet My 6 yo drew this picture of us today. This would be one of the 86,337 pictures drawn from the teacher asking “Please draw a picture of your family” before he graduates from high school.

Tweet Every day is a trial and error in my effort to bring my kids up the “right” way… Here is an incident happened last month which I have been chewing over and over: My 6 year-old came home excited one day to tell me all about what he had learned at school about MLK, […]
