About Me

Female. Retired. Wife-Mom-Grandma. Approx. 30 years in broadcasting, at least 20 of those in news biz. Taurus. Loves chocolate - preferably without nuts or cocoanut. Animal lover. Rock-hound from pre-school age. Proud Democrat for life. Ardent environmentalist and pro-choicer. Hoping to use my skills set for the greater good. Still married to the same guy for 40+ years. Probably because he's a proud Democrat, too. Penmanship absolutely stinks, so I'm glad I'm a fast typist! I will always love Hillary and she will always be my President.

No kidding.

Mine too.

Made me get choked up.

I made a note of it.

Every week, our Indivisible group issues a Call to Action email, with five weekday asks and events for the next two to three weeks. It always starts with the “Inspirational Opening.” Instead of the usual stirring or relevant quotes for next week, I’m gonna use this link. With the title and Charlie Pierce’s intro.

Looks like he's still a dad first, a grandpa second, and THEN the President.

You know, the job he gets to - AFTER the important stuff is taken care of: after he’s tucked the kids in bed, read them their favorite stories complete with funny character voices, and then checking UNDER the bed to make sure all the goblins and beasties were cleared outta there.

Can’t help loving this guy.

What a difference from the last selfish vainglorious putz!

A dad would do that. A grandpa would do that. Always looking out for the kids to make sure everything’s okay.

And now, he‘a looking out for ALL of us to at least try to make everything okay (or, at least, better than it had been).

Lucky we are.

This is another excellent idea.

VERY good ideas!

And it seems to be, with body cams, they have to be turned ON to do any good.

There should be some mechanism that thwarts an officer’s ability to “forget” to turn on his/her body cam.

We’ve seen this multiple times.

Guess WE have to be their consciences.

If their own consciences are muted, then the consciences of others have to speak up.

More witnesses and more sets of ears and eyeballs are important. Preventive. Maybe even life-saving.

What a great point!

Glad she’s there to make it and show it.

I LOVE protest posters. They can really boil an issue down to its essence. I guess the limits of a piece of cardboard can really focus the mind. Sure makes it succinct.

"...and the children shall lead."

True class and compassion.

And you can have the confidence and satisfaction that it’s completely REAL and totally HONEST. It’s not an act for temporary, phony, pandering, calculated, and strategically cosmetic purposes only. This is sincere. No play-acting for some photo op.
