Give Credit to Baltimore Police

Although the six Baltimore Police officers have been accused of causing the death of Freddie Gray, few pundits have given credit to the Mayor, Chief of Police and the many officers for the way they handled the outbreaks of violence last week. Things could have turned out far worse had not the police largely handled […]

Understanding Unrest in Baltimore.

Again, we are confronted by images of a modern city burning from the fires of alienation, oppression, and despair. Many of my generation have seen the fires raging before almost fifty years ago in Detroit, Watts and Newark. I lived through the 1967 Riots in Detroit and know the devastation and destruction they wreaked on […]

Don’t Shut Down TPP Debate!

Will the proposed Trans-Pacific Trade Agreement adversely affect the working poor, middle class, unions and laborers by giving corporations more power at the expense of American workers? Discussion is ensuing about America losing her sovereignty to corporations with this agreement which really has me worried especially given the current culture of corporatism that has virtually […]

“Amazing People.”

I have met so many amazing people in my life and I am grateful for the many lessons I have learned from them. The gifts and blessings of the encounters have more to do with their beautiful caring and compassionate hearts, their fresh openness to new ideas and their honest refusal to judge, condemn or […]

I don’t know if it is the calm before the storms, but I hope that Mitch McConnell’s almost monastic a-plomb, and the Gregorian “chant-cantational” tone of his post-election acceptance speech does not mask more fiercely uncompromising opposition that may come from Republicans now that they have the majority seats in both Houses of Congress. Contrast this, […]

In the words of my beloved uncle Bo, the Republicans put a “hurt” on the Democrats in the mid-term elections, and many commentators have cited a whole boatload of reasons for the thrashing. The following thoughts and my own thoughts are offered as part of what went wrong. Forty five percent of Americans did not go to the […]

“Beware of Rule Changes.”

I have learned that life is not always fair. Your opponents will sometimes use every measure possible to gain and maintain the competitive advantage over you. Rule changes are part of the game and often range from the sublime to the ridiculous. As I survey the landscape of the upcoming elections, I am astounded at […]

“Life and Relationships are Not Always Fifty-Fifty”

One thing I have realized in my short time on this planet is that life is not always fair. “Sometimes you are the pigeon. Sometimes you are the statue.” “Sometimes you eat the bear and other times the bear eats you.” In the final analysis things in life do balance out in some way or […]

Sometimes You Must Stand Again.

It takes a lot to stand up for what we believe in today’s world. Taking a stand can be uncomfortable especially when the things that we stand for makes others angry or rubs them the wrong way. It easy to remain silent in the face of injustices. As Elie Wiesel reminds us, we may not […]

Sometimes You Must Stand.

In a world that often punishes. labels or disregards people who stand for what is right, the task of standing for that right can often be difficult. We live in a world where we seek the approval and appreciation of others and when we sometimes find ourselves at odds with them on any given issue, […]
