Last week, I visited South Florida for four days, and what a shock: Everything was open.
Last week, actress Gina Carano made headlines when Disney+ and Lucasfilm decided to cancel her from their hit series “The Mandalorian” because of controversial social media posts. It is perfectly obvious the corporations had been looking for an excuse to get rid of Carano, thanks to her cons…
In the 1970s, President Jimmy Carter supposedly worried that Americans were suffering from collective malaise, the French word for an underlying feeling of discomfort, uneasiness. Carter was roundly ridiculed. A few years later, President Ronald Reagan campaigned in 1984 on the theme, in sha…
My wife and I have believed in the vaccine since day one. As some may know, we have moved to Michigan and have a condo in south Florida. Since I am over 75, I am in line for the second level of vaccines, just after health care workers and emergency personnel.
Ken: If we can ignore for a bit the pointless political theater goings-on in the U.S. Senate, the biggest news right now is that the CDC has decided on a scientific basis that it’s time for the kids to go back to school, and they have provided guidelines for doing so: No surprises there — ma…
We are about a month away from the one-year mark since our first pandemic shutdown. In the past 11 months, I have run the gamut from doubtful to acceptance to defeat to hopeful again.
Although you’d never get one to admit it publicly, I suspect there are some Biden voters who might be experiencing a little buyer’s remorse.
As I watched the horror of the raid on our Congress, I could only imagine the fear so many of our legislators must have felt. I thought how a prior experience of a threat to life on some might impact their fear more than on others. Trauma experts have stated that such a reaction based on a p…
As he sat at the table, I realized it was a road atlas of the USA ... something I have not seen or used in at least 15 or more years.
Is there even one half-sane Democrat who will stand up and denounce the fiscal atrocity of President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion spending bill?
I spent a great percentage of my working life inside of a courtroom trying cases from dog bites to murder. Medical malpractice to child custody. Land disputes to will contests. I was not the usual lawyer of the times who did corporate work, drew wills, closed real estate transactions, and we…
Joe: The impeachment trial is scheduled to commence Monday. It is supposed to run all week, probably dominating the news. If former President Trump were in office, a conviction would remove him, which would obviously be a big deal. But he is not in office...
“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America…”. We know the rest. From our earliest ability to comprehend belonging to something outside our immediate family, we were taught the pledge. In just a few words, it established our loyalty as citizens. We cited it to affirm the…
Let’s pretend for a moment that it is 1970. The Vietnam War is raging. Protestors are out in numbers. They have disrupted Chicago two years before when the Democratic Convention was being held there. Rev. King is dead and the city of Washington, D.C. is rebuilding from the riots and looting …
For four years, we were informed by our establishment media former President Donald Trump’s behavior was “not normal.” The abnormality of Trump’s behavior became a near rallying cry for the self-appointed heroes of journalism, who spent every waking hour poring over his bizarre tweets and hi…
